  • 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?).

    2252-2268 Otis Dr Alameda, CA 94501, USA - Alameda
    Fence along Powell Street is in disrepair. The chain link fence posts are pulled out of the ground. The fence is rusty. The top railing of the chain link fence is bent. The wood fence is broken. And the concrete pillars are broken off. All in all, it seems unsafe as well as generally run down and forgotten.

  • 1559 Pacific Avenue Alameda, California - Alameda
    The sidewalk in front of this address is a broken ankle waiting to happen. There are chunks of concrete that are missing. My kids tripped on it during halloween. I tripped on it this morning while going for a run. Please fix it ASAP before someone actually breaks an ankle.

  • 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.

  • Atlantic And Constitution Alameda/Alameda, California - Alameda
    When coming down Atlantic Ave (from the direction of Wind River Co.) and just before approaching Constitution way on the left side there is a large opening cut in the fence to the J Sweeney Park and just inside this opening is a growing homeless encampment. This has been ongoing and you have reconnected the fence only to have it cut again, however, this am when walking my dog I found several drug needles just outside the opening to the fence. I picked them up carefully and threw them away however this is now on a level of danger not only because there is drug use but they are throwing their needles on the ground. Please have clean up this encampment so there is no danger to any children who may go in the field to play and secure the fence once again.

  • 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.

  • 2101 Webster Street Alameda, California - Alameda
    There is an ongoing and worsening problem of red light running, speeding and failure to yield to pedestrians at the intersection of Atlantic and Webster. I cross here several times a day and the condition worsens year after year. This is the busiest pedestrian intersection in the entire City of Alameda. There are over 6500 students, faculty and staff who work at the College of Alameda. In addition, ASTI High School is at this location as well as senior housing, the City's Housing Authority and the the Walgreen's / Starbuck's shopping area.

    Is it really okay to keep an old car in plain view of the street? See also garbage furniture
