    This alcove is a perpetual problem spot, and needs to be gated.

  • 3974 Manila Oakland, California - Temescal

    With expired Georgia plates, BYQ 9174. It is not only parked on the sidewalk, but there appears to be someone living in it and that person has been emptying his tanks in the street. Thus it is also a public health hazard.

  • 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.

  • 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?

  • 3834 Opal Street Oakland, CA - Mosswood

    On the Buddhist Center's Manila Avenue frontage, an old Chronicle vending machine has been sitting there for weeks, and is now covered in graffiti. How complex can it be to remove a piece of junk like this?

  • Lakeshore Avenue And The Cleveland Cascade Oakland, CA - Lake Merritt

    As with other pedestrian crosswalks in our community, this one at the Cleveland Cascade has no lighting to alert drivers that someone is crossing. I recently was almost hit when a driver began to brake as I approached and then accelerated through the crosswalk, narrowly missing me just as I stepped out into his or her path. This crosswalk needs the same blinking light system used in other area crosswalks.

  • 2215 Park Blvd Oakland, CA - Cleveland Heights

    Speed Limit Solar Sign ► Open
    2215 Park Blvd
    This 25 MPH solar Speed Limit Sign has not been working for at least over a year. Report has been made before but nothing has been done.
    This Speed Limit Sign is critical for the neighborhood because speeding vehicles are happening everyday.
    Elementary School crossing is a block and half away.
    Some go as fast ad 40-50 MPH.

  • Street Light Archived
    3300 Grand Avenue Oakland, California - Lakeshore

    This issue relates to the Walker Avenue parking lot - the entrance to which is between 3268 and 3300 Grand. This city parking lot has a huge problem with auto break-ins and there's also an inordinate amount of armed robberies in this area. From what we've been told, there are no plans currently to replace the existing lighting with LEDs. In the interest of safety and as a way to provide needed support to Grand Avenue businesses, we'd urge the city to find the means to make this possible.

  • 3351 Lakeshore Avenue Oakland, California - Lakeshore

    The trash cans in front of Noah's and Starbucks are almost always in the street and almost always overflowing. Lakeshore has become a very desirable shopping and dining district and this kind of blight needs to be eliminated permanently.

  • 609 Vernon Street Oakland, CA 94610, USA - Grand Lake

    City came by and blasted hole in street and then left it with orange cone. Needs to be fixed immediately. Huge and getting bigger with street traffic. Now it is a great hazard to cars and the neighborhood in general!
