Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
Spurred by a fad of selfie-snapping atop Mission Peak — which offers a world-at-your feet view of Silicon Valley and San Francisco Bay — usage of the one-mile trail to the summit has grown exponentially in recent years.
First of all get your facts straight. This not a case exponential growth. There has been very constant number of visitors for the last three years. It's a 3.1 mile hike not one-mile. It is also a 2100 ft. climb. The reason people go up there is because it is an accomplishment. Mission Peak is part of an eclectic park system all bay area residents can enjoy. Imagine closing a park because it has become popular. That's ridiculous and in opposition to the stated goals of East Bay Regional Parks.
"Residents near the Stanford Avenue access point have complained to EBRPD staff about the resulting parking glut in the streets in front of their homes."
I bet they'd throw a fit if someone suggested better transit access though.
Omgeeee that would be wonderful... God bless
Too many excuses by too many people for too many years. Yes on Measure LL. Oakland deserves better. www.yesonll.com
OMGGGG I sure hope this happens. I miss Nellie's. Those oxtails and the dressing..muahh. Please keep us all updated. What a gift to start the holidays with.!!!!
Actually the charge to censure is being led by private citizens, many from McElhaney's own District.
Well bless the Lord. 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽
Crooked Desley Brooks is leading the charge to censure McElhhaney?? Really? Brooks is hypocrisy personified. OMG, it's impossible to make this stuff up.
@ Peter Stokes: "OPD officers told me they live outside Oakland for the welfare of their families. I was stunned." You shouldn't be. The killers of Judy Salamon cheerfully threatened witnesses with death. Some guys are really bad characters. You don't want your spouse and children to have an "accident" on an Oakland street. * * * I've talked to officers who have rotated through many assignments, served in beats all over the city, and certainly "understand Oakland for what it is."
The Night Light event for those in Oakland
Re the garbage contracts, "cool" is the new "rigged."
Re the police (also firefighters and to an unknown extent public works personnel), it's astonishing that the widely-covered abandonment of New Orleans by police especially in the Katrina aftermath hasn't been taken as a model for what will happen in Oakland in the event of a severe Hayward fault rupture (due any time now, note). Unamazingly, under such circumstances people will prioritize the safety of their own families.
State law, passed by the Legislature in the '70s under union pressure, prohibits cities from enforcing residency requirements for employees, but one would think a simple sense of self-preservation would be enough to motivate the majority of Californians living in major earthquake hazard zones to get that changed.
A shame we can't keep good spots for long
What a blessing it would be.
I'm doing the happy dance right now!
thank lord Jesus
I sure hope this happens. Yaaay!
We should all look at all the issues and everyone involved, not just what makes our like (me, myself and I) better off? It's time we act and vote like a country, together on the important things like Justice Reform. Because "No One Belongs In Jail for Marijuana"
Noel Gallo was the only one who voted against the garbage contract BTW... I think he's a pretty straight shooter.
