PANIL meets the 2nd Wednesday of the month at Piedmont Gardens, 110 41st Street, 11th Floor (Sky Room)
Next PANIL meeting:
Wed., June 13th at 7:30 pm
Extended Neighborhood Council
Public safety update from Anna Sanchez (Community Resource Officer) and Brenda Ivey (Neighborhood Services Coordinator)
General Meeting: 8:00 pm
Neighbors have expressed grave concerns at PANIL meetings and on social media about traffic safety at several intersections in the neighborhood, especially at Pleasant Valley and Gilbert Street and Pleasant Valley at Piedmont Avenue. Both intersections have had a number of dangerous near-misses, and at Pleasant Valley and Piedmont, we are aware of several recent incidents: a three-vehicle crash, a bicycle-vehicle incident, and a pedestrian-vehicle incident where the victim suffered life-changing injuries. Appropriate city staff were not available for this June PANIL meeting, but the PANIL steering committee is hoping to have staff from the Oakland Department of Transportation at the July 11 PANIL meeting to discuss options for improving safety at these intersections. Please mark your calendars, and we will send out more information shortly.
