Montclair Safety and Improvement Committee

Notified About

  • 1687 Mountain Blvd Oakland, California - Montclair
    The sidewalk between Montclair Library (1687 Mountain) and Montclair Elementary (1757 Mountain) is badly damaged, with cracks, dips, upheaval and other damage, making it hard for people with strollers or wheelchairs (or even unwary pedestrians) to navigate safely. This section of sidewalk gets a lot of foot traffic due to the library, local schools and the nearby bus stop - it would be great to have some improvements.

  • 6226 Moraga Ave Piedmont, CA 94611, USA - Montclair
    This is the worst the pond has looked in the 12 years I have used the park. It is overgrown and now full of pond scum. It looks stagnant. Really needs some better circulation and some if the tall vegetation cleared on the end near the playground.

  • 400 Montclair Avenue Oakland, CA 94606, USA - Cleveland Heights
    Abandoned Couch - This couch has been here for months now. It is obviously been dumped either by a tenant or someone on the block. The weeds have even been cut down around it so the property owner must know it's there. It's located to the left of the main entrance on Montclair.

  • Pothole Archived
    4941-4999 Park Boulevard Oakland, CA 94611, USA - Oakmore
    I drove over a pothole on the west side of the Park Bv (heading down towards Glenview from Montclair) that was so bad, my car slammed down into it with a screaming loud bang likely damaging my suspension and tires from this either unreported horrific pot hole or pit hike that is being ignored... again. This one must get fixed.

  • Bayo Street Oakland, CA - Redwood Heights
    The potholes on Bayo Street and 39th Avenue starting at Reinhardt Drive are to the point where you have to dodge the potholes. I have lost count of how many potholes are located on these two streets. I have taken photos of some of the potholes (see attached). I have been living on Bayo Street since 1998 (14-years) and 14-years ago I was told Bayo Street was on the list to be resurfaced. To this day Bayo Street has become riddled with large potholes and 39th Avenue was resurfaced from Bayo to MacArthur and now from Bayo Street up to Aliso Avenue 39th Avenue should be resurfaced. It has become an act of dodging the potholes to drive to work or home. Please add these two streets, especially Bayo Street to the list of streets in Oakland to be resurfaced. It is depressing to drive around the city of Oakland and see other streets being resurfaced in more affluent neighborhoods, i.e., Montclair and the Glenview District. Take a look at the streets in the Laurel District. Please.

  • Stone At San Leandro Oakland, CA - North Stonehurst
    I am increasing confused about the operations by the City, as this picture was taken the day they officially CLOSED the file on this report - I don't know about you, but between the dead rotting dog and the toxic paint and busted glass everywhere I don't think would past muster - and, if this was the clean up standard in Montclair the Hills would be metaphorically on fire. Do we need to accept that there is one standard for East Oakland and one for the wealthy areas in the Hills? Yes / No answer please. Your thoughts?

  • Illegal Dumping Acknowledged
    9238 Birch St Oakland, CA 94603, USA - Cox
    More dumping. When are you going to either hold AT&T responsible for the issues around their grounds or start enforcing the rule of law in this area? THIS WOULD NEVER HAPPEN IN MONTCLAIR, TRESTLE GLEN, THE DIMOND...start treating Deep East Oakland like HUMAN BEINGS live here. We have a right to NOT see garbage everywhere.

  • There are two large City of Oakland recycle cans near Pete"s Coffee in Montclair. The openings are taped over with signs saying out of order.

    What exactly breaks on a recycle bin? These take up a lot of sidewalk space and now look quite ugly. If they don't work and can't be repaired, can we get them removed please. I would rather see them operational.
