2902 Vessing Road Pleasant Hill, CA 94523, USA - Pleasant Hill
When turning from Vessing Road onto Geary Road, the new sidewalk (from Dorthy to Vessing) indents, allowing cars to park on Geary. If there are cars parked there, it is impossible to see oncoming traffic traveling west on Geary from Vessing. This makes turning either way on Geary extremely dangerous. The picture was taken from Vessing in the spot where we are positioned to turn onto Geary. Note that the moving car in the picture would be completely blocked by a parked car. This design flaw needs to be corrected. Cars leaving Vessing Road are already challenged by cars from Creston turning onto Geary without paying attention to us. This makes leaving my neighborhood very dangerous.
Contra Costa Canal Trail Walnut Creek, CA 94597, USA - Waldon
This section of the Contra Costa Canal Trail is full of deep potholes. They either shake up the bikers rather badly, or cause them to cross over to the other side of the trails which frequently leads to close calls, in particular in the curve
Shuey Avenue Walnut Creek, CA - Walnut Creek
Poor lighting along Shuey Ave and Almond makes it unsafe for females to walk home from Bart or downtown alone. Other areas have much better lighting. I try not to drive as to not clog up bart/ downtown parking or waste gas but it is unsafe after sun down when I get home from work. :( Uneven side walks with poor lighting makes it even more unsafe.
2175 Willow Pass Road Bay Point, California - Concord
I was at the playground at Todos Santos a week ago and saw a bunch of cockroaches crawling around in the tanbark and up the sides of the granite wall/seating area around the play structure. There were a few large ones and lots of small ones. Some of the kids were even chasing the large cockroaches and poking them with sticks.
I don't know what brought the cockroaches there, and I shudder to think how many of them might be lurking under the tanbark, but I hope this gets taken care of.
900 Cheyenne Drive Walnut Creek, California - Walnut Creek
Intersection only has a 2-way stop on Quiet Place (east & westbound). I've seen many cars speeding on Cheyenne Dr. as it has no stop signs. It does have pedestrian crosswalk, though cars ignore pedestrians since it lack a stop sign. This is a major throughfare for Northgate H.S. students walking home and for children and families trying to connect to the trails either by walking or riding their bikes. I have seen many near misses over the years. Please place a 4-way pedestrian crossing and 4-way stop signs as it was done at Wiget Lane and Quiet Place. Our children and families deserve a safe crossing!
2529 Mohawk Court Walnut Creek, CA - Walnut Creek
Years of accumulated garbage, junk, debris in rear yard and also visible inside house, hoarding problem.
Also mosquito risk from unmaintained swimming pool. Previous report 3 months ago tagged "complete" but there is no change as of two days ago, except more garbage piled in front.
1054 /Esplanade Place Walnut Creek, California - Walnut Creek
Local residents have to list to this person clearly run some sort of DIY business from their home, late into the evening.
They consistently run a circle saw, from around 5.00pm until it gets dark. No consideration for local residents who would like to enjoy their homes and yards, no consideration for local residents who have children.
This is not only at the weekend (where it stops as late as 9pm) but during the week too.
256 San Antonio Way Walnut Creek, CA - Walnut Creek
I will never forgive myself if I didn't report this knowing that the next person tripping over this broken concrete ends up in the hospital.Yesterday I fell face down on the broken concrete and besides bruises and scrapes on my face,swollen knee and sore wrists but nothing broken I consider myself lucky.I hope the city can fix this asap! I also have pictures from other areas within the same block.
1460 Creekside Drive Walnut Creek, CA - Walnut Creek
A business called "Filo's Landscaping' has been commandeering 3-4 parking spaces in a single row everyday for their trucks on our residential street. When one truck moves, they make sure another truck is blocking the space or the employees put their personal vehicles in place to save the spot until the truck returns. I've witnessed them do this dance every morning and afternoon for the past two months. But it's been going on for years (based on neighbor's comments and the fact that when you use "Street View" on Google Earth for this address, their trucks still show up in 2011).
Parking on Creekside Drive is extremely limited, so much so that you will certainly not find any street parking after 12:00 p.m. These guys take up the same lane with 3 or 4 trucks at a time, all day, every day. I've heard several neighbors complain that they have to pay $10 a night to park in the lodge down the street or else not use their car at all for fear of not having parking when getting back from work.
