JB started this petition to City of Oakland Building Department and

Why should we have to look at this? It's an eyesore for the entire neighborhood that's gone on far too long.

We the undersigned request that the City of Oakland require the owners and developers of the property listed above to improve the property while development decisions are being made as to its disposition, such that it no longer violates City Code 8.24.020 -- Blighted Property.

The property is in violation of several Code Sections including A 2 (abandoned work), C 4 (creates a public risk by obsolete and/or abandoned equipment, supplies, etc.), D 1 (preponderance of debris, weeds and garbage), D 5 (insufficient landscaping), and D 7 (buildup of debris and garbage along fences).

Additionally, there has been arson on the lot, posing a health and safety risk to us all.

Our neighborhood has been gravely impacted by the developer’s lack of attention to the site. The large Kaiser-owned lot at Broadway/MacArthur, Oakland has been recently landscaped while Kaiser makes decisions about how to develop the lot. JRDV should be required to do the same!

 We request that the City of Oakland force the developer to:

1.      Clean up the property of all garbage, weeds, equipment, abandoned building supplies, etc., and commit to monthly clean up until such time that construction resumes.

2.      Landscape to a park-like level with trees, bushes, ground covers, etc.

3.      Erect an attractive fence (wood or non-chain link metal) around the entire perimeter.

4. Come into compliance with all codes and regulations.

Residents and shoppers should not have to be subjected to this blight any longer.
