  • 2101 Shore Line Drive Alameda California - Alameda
    Please install flashing pedestrian lights across Shore Line Drive at the South Shore Center intersection, west of the Post Office. A pedestrian was struck and seriously injured by an SUV here. People need to safely get to the beach from the shopping center.
  • 912-916 Delmar Ave Alameda 94501 United States - Alameda
    Massive flooding and standing water over public sidewalk. Flooding is causing land subsidence which is damaging the public sidewalk by causing it to sink, crack and break. Flooding is also creating a breeding habitat for mosquitoes effecting citizens in the neighborhood and citizens who walk along the sidewalk. Issue needs to be addressed immediately before damage and the public health issues continue or get worse.
  • 2200-2276 Powell St Alameda, CA 94501, USA - Alameda
    There's a nasty looking growth in the lagoon this year. (Algae?)
  • Maitland Drive Alameda, California - Alameda
    Maitland Drive from Island to Harbor Bay Parkways is so dangerous. AC Transit buses, cars, commercial trucks barrel through this street at least 40 plus miles per hour if not more. The long blocks encourage drivers to drive faster. I am requesting that the City of Alameda install speed lumps and proper bike lanes like on Bayview in Alameda to physically slow down traffic. They have marked bike lanes, cross walks, and speed lumps. Let this street serve as a great example for other Alamedians. Let Alameda serve as a great example for the rest of the community and to other neighboring cities for the safety of their streets.
    I lived on this street for many years and have seen traffic increase on this street with more people moving here and commuting via Bart or Ferry. I have gone to City Hall in Alameda -7 years ago in fact- regarding speed to no avail. They conducted their 2-week study only to find that this did not warrant any safety measures on this street. That it was okay for people to travel 15-25 miles over the speed limit and the other 20% for them to travel 35 miles over the speed limit.
    I've seen kids playing, school children walking, a family of bikers, seniors walking, and dog walkers and vehicles do not slow down. Every time I put the recycle bins and garbage out or attempt to get into my car, a speeding car comes inches from me without even slowing down. Typically they are not people who live on this street but people passing through in a hurry like a freeway. Think of a freeway and then think of Maitland Drive. There are no proper marked bike lanes, one pedestrian cross walk, no 25mph sign anywhere along Maitland except on the far end, no digital feedback machines like on Fernside, the roads are old and crusty, and of course no speed lumps. Police rarely enforce the speed on Maitland and in fact, I rarely see them on Maitland. The animal control officer that I spoke to a few times here couldn't believe how fast cars were speeding down this street. She told me to contact the traffic patrol officer but no one called me back from that department.
    I've lost 10 pets due to the vehicles hitting them and also seen car accidents due to speed. I am afraid that one day it will take a loss of a human life for the City of Alameda to do anything to make our street safer. It's unfortunate but sometimes this is the only way to install any safety measures.
    Every day I see AC Transit buses, trucks, and vehicles speed through because nothing is stopping them. So frustrating. I contact Public works almost daily to have something done but this is probably not the best place to start so I will start on this website.
  • 1017-1099 Oak Street Alameda, CA - Alameda
    Resident is requesting the installation of all-way stop signs. She said that the visibility for the EB approach is difficult.
  • 2015 Grand St Alameda, CA - Alameda
    These Oil storage tanks are rusting badly and are directly across from single family homes. Its curious that the City allowed these homes to be built so close to this industrial petroleum storage facility, as I see children playing very close to this property quite frequently, but can something be done about these eyesores? Aside from the question of maintenance (if Pennzoil maintains the exterior of their tanks like this, what priority do they give for other maintenance and safety protocols?), can the City cite them for being an eyesore (Nuisance Conditions)? The planning department indicated to me that this area has been rezoned as residential and Pennzoil was grandfathered in, but it seems they should be required to maintain their storage tanks properly. Thanks in advance to our City officials for looking into this matter and advising if anything can be done (e.g is there no requirement that they properly maintain and routinely paint these huge, very publicly visible storage tanks?).
  • 660 Taylor Avenue Alameda, California - Alameda

    Dear City Manager,

    I am writing to you regarding the conditions at Webster and Taylor. Specifically, conditions within 200 feet west of this intersection.

    All of the following have been reported via SeeClickFix.

    1. There are dozens of tags on the historic building and property at 1431 Webster Street. Code Enforcement is non responsive.

    2. The front yard of 645 Taylor has been paved over for parking. As a result, the adjacent sidewalk is broken. Code Enforcement found the property in violation, but the parking lot is still there and the sidewalk is still broken.

    3. Ongoing and never ending dumping of trash near this intersection. The No Dumping sign has graffiti on it.

    4. Broken sidewalks, including sidewalks repaved with asphalt.

    5. Broken storm drains.

    6. Roads and sidewalks that do not drain due to faulty grades.

    7. Roadway long overdue for reconstruction.

    8. The City operated parking lot at Webster and Taylor was closed several years ago and no replacement parking was created. The project approved for this location seems to be in abeyance.

    This area suffered decades of disinvestment due to redlining based on race and class discrimination.

    I urge you to visit this location and take action to remedy these and other problems. It is long overdue that the City address these type of problems and the longstanding injustices that helped to create and perpetuate them.

    Regards,

    Steve Gerstle

  • 1707 Eagle Avenue - Behind Our Home Alameda, California - Alameda
    My garage flooded this last January due to the land not being graded correctly in the empty lot behind our home. We recently finished the $9000 worth of repairs yet have noticed that the city has not gotten rid of the debris and the land is not graded properly. When the rain comes, my property will be damaged again. The huge mounds of dirt and debris need to be removed and the ground needs to be dug out and graded so the water doesn't push into my property.
  • Webster Street And Willie Stargell Alameda, California - Alameda
    There are no less than 5 homeless encampments in and around the ramp structure on Webster St and Willie Stargell. The largest encampment with seen drug use is directly under the ramp overpass structure. The remainder of encampments are scattered along the ramp side perimeter facing Webster and Willie Stargell. Wouldn't be surprised if there are more encampments on the other side of the ramp structure facing Marina Village too.
  • 3282-3286 San Jose Avenue Alameda, California - Alameda
    I'm the Principal of Lincoln Middle School. Every day before and after school we see a half dozen or more cars make illegal U-Turns on San Jose. I'm requesting a patrol officer every once an while between 7:45 am to 8:15 am and between 2:50 pm and 3:10 pm.
