Notified About

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 2056 Mountain Blvd Oakland, California - Montclair Business
    This shop has been closed for over two years, NEVER open, same dusty stuff in the window, PILES of mail building up by the door, and ceiling tiles falling down visible too. The landlord needs to be pushed to find another tenant - this is visual BLIGHT for Montclair, a negative distraction for other businesses, and terrible PR for Montclair in general. What is growing inside there?

  • 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?

  • Pothole Archived
    6499 Chabot Road Oakland, CA 94618, USA - Rockridge
    The entirety of Chabot Road to Golden Gate needs to be redone. There are so many potholes. This is the only route to Montclair for cyclists and the road is terrible. I bike it weekly with 3 children, including a baby, because it is the only route to where we need to go and I worry about flat tires as well as all the effect of the shaking from the uneven road beneath us. This road needs to be repaired.

  • 830-848 Macarthur Boulevard Oakland, California - Cleveland Heights

    First, thank you so much for removing trash and weeds along the side of MacArthur Blvd closest to the freeway between Montclair Ave and Park Blvd.

    Please remove the mattress and other furnishings along the sidewalk closest to the 580 Frwy near where Spruce St intersects MacArthur Blvd. To keep the area from being a magnet for dumping please also retrieve the mattress laying on the other side of the fence. Obviously this mattress was put there while someone was standing on City property. It will take the State too long to retrieve this mattress.
