10/12/2021

This week City of Alameda prosecutors obtained a $15,000 settlement to resolve harassment and wrongful eviction claims raised by an elderly tenant.

Here's what happened. Marjorie had rented an apartment in Alameda for more than 13 years. Last year, her landlord began repeatedly directing her to vacate her home, because he was selling the property. Believing she had no other choice, earlier this year Margorie vacated her home without having new permanent housing.

However, local law prohibits landlords from evicting tenants without just cause and prohibits owners from harassing or pressuring tenants to vacate their homes.

If something's happening and you have questions about it or want to report an issue, please contact the prosecution unit at 510-747-4772 or email [email protected].

Check out the new daylighting (painting curbs red to forbid parking and increase visibility) here at Sherman and Pacific and at other nearby intersections. Better visibility increases safety for all road users and makes it easier for drivers to see people in crosswalks. Coming soon, the High Injury Corridor Daylighting Project will daylight parts of Lincoln, Santa Clara, Park, and Webster. Many thanks to our transportation and Public Works team for all their work to make our streets safer!

Get Tested

Starting tomorrow, Tuesday, October 5, fast and free COVID-19 PCR testing is available Alameda. Make an appointment or walk-in (851 W Midway Ave, in the parking lot behind the building): http://appointments.nextgenlabs.com

We must continue to take steps to protect ourselves and each other, including testing, masking, and getting vaccinated. If you have signs or symptoms of COVID-19, you should get tested as soon as possible.

Vaccination continues to be our best tool to prevent infection and severe illness, hospitalization, and death due to COVID-19. 93.9% of Alamedans 12 & older have received at least their first dose, but that leaves nearly 7000 Alamedans eligible and not vaccinated. We strongly urge anyone who is not fully vaccinated to drop-in to their local clinic or pharmacy or contact their healthcare provider to make an appointment:

Starting this Saturday, September 25, through October 4, construction on the runways at Oakland Airport will likely result in increased noise levels, as each day there will be 40-50 corporate jet departures and 20 cargo jet departures using the North Field runway (along Ron Cowen Parkway). While most of the corporate jet departures will occur during the day, half of the cargo jet departures, including FedEx, will occur late at night, from 10pm-7am.

Today Alameda City Manager Eric Levitt announced Nicholas “Nick” Luby as the City’s next Fire Chief, effective October 18. Chief Luby will come to Alameda with 23 years of fire service experience, most recently as the Deputy Chief of Operations with the Oakland Fire Department, where he has served for 21 years.

As we welcome incoming Fire Chief Nick Luby to Alameda, we want to thank Interim Fire Chief Rick Zombeck, who has served in this position since the beginning of the pandemic in March 2020. Chief Zombeck’s emergency management experience was critical to the City’s COVID-19 response. We wish Chief Zombeck all the best in his well-deserved retirement.

Can someone please look into putting a left turn signal on Otis and Grand, sitting through two lights to make a left isn't my idea of fun. Also the left turn signal from Otis to Shoreline seems broken again, sat 10 minutes before light changes and that was because of a pedestrian

The Everett Commons community just received a Merit in the Gold Nugget Awards program. Congratulations to the Alameda Housing Authority, the city, and the entire development team. It always takes many hands to make a project like this happen.
Please do something about the blowers. They are so harmful, make so much noise. They cover our cars and property with dust and at 7:30 am they are so annoying.
