  • 2015 Grand St Alameda, CA - Alameda

    These Oil storage tanks are rusting badly and are directly across from single family homes. Its curious that the City allowed these homes to be built so close to this industrial petroleum storage facility, as I see children playing very close to this property quite frequently, but can something be done about these eyesores? Aside from the question of maintenance (if Pennzoil maintains the exterior of their tanks like this, what priority do they give for other maintenance and safety protocols?), can the City cite them for being an eyesore (Nuisance Conditions)? The planning department indicated to me that this area has been rezoned as residential and Pennzoil was grandfathered in, but it seems they should be required to maintain their storage tanks properly. Thanks in advance to our City officials for looking into this matter and advising if anything can be done (e.g is there no requirement that they properly maintain and routinely paint these huge, very publicly visible storage tanks?).

  • 2159-2799 Grand Street Alameda, California - Alameda

    Many people walk along Grand Ave in order to access the beautiful park along Grand Marina. However, this session of the Grand Ave, between Clement Ave and Formann Way, is really not that friendly to pedestrian. It's very bumpy (especially not easy for strollers and bikes) and also there is no side walk.

  • 1404 Park Street Alameda, California - Alameda

    Every time we walk to park we run into cigarettes. Your refusal to enforce the ordinance is not helpful. Also at Southshore where we often run into customers and Safeway truck drivers smoking on the sidewalks and walkways.

  • 1166 Park Avenue East Alameda, California - Alameda

    Please fix the bench and fountain that Isabelle Clark donated for animals. It was damaged in a storm. You can move further back to protect it - people no longer drive their carriages up to it to water their horses. I'm sure wildlife and pet owners would appreciate a place to get a drink and sit down, facing into the park or Encinal street ( more foot traffic).

    People: sign this petition to let Parks and Rec know that we can fix this if we have the money to to fix other things - like the jet at the Old Air Station.

  • Broadway & San Jose Ave Alameda, CA - Alameda

    Pedestrians crossing Broadway at San Jose are are particularly endangered. School children are crossing in the early morning and late afternoons and anyone crossing at night face the hazard of darkness. While I don't believe traffic signals nor a 4-way stop is warranted, I do believe some kind of overhead yellow flashing signals (NOT in-ground) are that would be triggered by a pedestrian wishing to cross. Also adding zebra lines leading to the crosswalk would be an additional aid. Please see the suggested signals.

  • Graffiti Archived
    1254 Broadway Alameda, California - Alameda

    The news box has graffiti on it. Worse than that, the fence of this house has had graffiti on it for at least one year. Now they've crossed out the previous post and put XIV. There are at least three tags on this fence.

  • 1550 5th Street Alameda, California - Alameda

    The corner store at Lincoln and 5th seems to be the meeting spot for some interested folks. I can't say for sure that there are "drug deals," but what i can say is that there are number of times where there is a quick exchange of cash with a quick exchange of something..Also, there are quite a few just "visiting" car sittings.. Meaning that a car waits for quite sometime and then someone jumps in real quick and then out again..

  • 2513 Blanding Ave Alameda, CA 94501, USA - Alameda

    Many cars speed on Blanding Ave. between the stop sign at Broadway and the traffic light at Park. Also, There are no red painted curbs. Cars and, more critically, trucks park right on the corners blocking stop signs and visibility. It is difficult to cross the street on foot or car.

    There needs to be:
    1. A speed limit sign on both sides of the street WITH enforcement.
    2. Stop signs on Blanding Ave. at the corner of Everett Street OR at least a painted cross-walk.
    3. Speed bumps installed along this stretch.

    This is a much used corridor and drivers are given no information about:
    1. The speed limit.
    2. The fact that this is a mixed use business/residential area.
    3. There is a Community Art Center located at the corner of Blanding and Everett with people coming and going all day. There are children's day camps and classes.
