  • 55th Street And Dover Intersection Oakland, California - Bushrod

    A crosswalk has been needed for years at the intersection of 55th Street and Dover, between MLK and Shattuck Avenue. Cars drive at advanced speeds and pass other cars since the street is quite wide (even with the addition of the bike lanes neighbors suggested). Due to its location between several freeway on and off ramps, along with the street's width, drivers treat this stretch of road as a freeway extension. At the residential intersection of 55th and Dover, residents and neighborhood visitors and Children's Hospital Oakland employees (often children and seniors) routinely cross to reach the hospital, the popular Dover Street Park (@Dover/59th), the North Senior Oakland Senior Center, CHORI, and the bus stops (two well-used AC Transit lines run down 55th Street) on either side of the street. Although not a formal bike route, Dover Street is also heavily utilized by bicyclists. Crossing for pedestrians and bikers is often an impossible task due to the lack of signage and a steady stream of speeding cars (some passing other cars in the oncoming lane at even higher speeds). It is particularly difficult to cross during the winter, when residents coming home from work must disembark from buses and try to cross the street after dark (and sometimes in the rain). Pedestrians, bicyclists, and drivers would benefit greatly from a large reflective thermoplast crosswalk and reflective signage at 55th/Dover to alert drivers to the presence of pedestrians (particularly children and seniors) for whom they should slow down.

  • 5707 Dover St. Oakland, California - Bushrod

    Fence and Slide are broken at Dover Street Park.

    Reference number for slide is 447309
    Reference number for fence is 454807

    We have been waiting for more than 5 weeks for a fix. Gotta wonder if our long wait time is because we live below Shattuck Ave.

  • 7677 Oakport Street Oakland, CA - Coliseum Industrial

    There are numerous pot holes located all along Oakport Street, and it appears that with all of the rain, the pot holes are becoming bigger and more frequent. This is becoming increasingly worse for all of the people who travel this road daily.

  • Gazebo disaster! Acknowledged
    1300-1354 34th Street Oakland, California - Clawson

    The gazebo is a site of illegal prostitution and drug use with the dumping of needles, alcohol bottles and condoms. The garbage is also attracting rodents and feral cats. The state of this gazebo poses a clear health and safety risk to the community.

  • 471-517 Lake Park Avenue Oakland, California - Lakeshore

    A Queen Palm was demolished earlier today when a car westbound on Lake Park skidded out of control. This is not an emergency since he tree has already been removed.

    While I the hope the driver wasn't seriously injured, this incident raises two distinct issues:

    #1: This was the third of the Queen Palms that were installed in 2003 as part of the Splash Pad project that were destroyed by out of control vehicles. On the first two occasions, as far as I know, no efforts were made by the city to sue for damages that would be used to plant replacement palms. An established Queen Palm this size is going to run about $600 -$700 and delivery and installation will double that price. Since the Public Works Department is extremely short-staffed and lacking in funds, this latest palm is not going to be replaced unless the driver's insurance company foots the bill. As we all know, the city is being sued constantly--often for far less clear-cut reasons. How about us trying to level the playing field?

    #2: There have been numerous accidents on this short stretch of Lake Park -- typically cars speeding as they come off the freeway and/or speeding up to try and make the green light on Grand. The palm in the median across from KFC was destroyed several years ago and not replaced. The one today was across from Chao Thai. Another three palms in that median are heavily scarred from earlier accidents. I'd strongly suggest that Traffic Engineering look into installation of signs that warn of a curve ahead and/or 25mph speed limit signs or whatever else may do the trick.

  • 600 Broadway Oakland, California - Chinatown

    The underpass on Broadway between sixth and fifth street is is really filthy and smelly with garbage, trash, etc. Needs high pressure cleaning every couple of weeks. People use this to walk to BART. This is an ongoing problem that needs attention. The "artwork" (everyone thinks it is freeway fencing, but my understanding is that Oakland actually paid for this) also needs to be removed so that it is easier to keep clean, since garbage accumulates between there and the fence, itinerants use the semi-closed in portion for camping while passing through, and it looks really ugly.

  • Park Blvd (From Oakland High To E-18th Street) Oakland, California - Rancho San Antonio

    Lack of Speed Limit Signs on Park Blvd:
    Most drivers are not aware of the speed limit on Park Blvd from Oakland High School - E-18th Street
    "is 25 MPH"
    1) We will need to post more speed limit signs (currently only ONE is in place)
    2) We need to educate the drivers about the speed limit.
    3) We need to monitor it.
    4) Then, we need to enforce it and prosecute on those who do not obey the traffic laws.
    Traffic Engineering Dept and OPD - we need your help, please

  • Ongoing nuisance Acknowledged
    341 13th Street Oakland, California - Downtown

    The shooting on the morning of April 13th outside of shadow ultra lounge makes that the 10th shooting at that address in the last 3 years. That's probably some sort of record. Any chance that the operator of the nightclub could be evicted under the nuisance ordinance? Or do we have to get to 20 shootings before something can be done?
