Letters to the Editors
The readers who live near the intersection of Echo and Rose Avenue know that many of us think it is a dangerous intersection and we are asking the City of Piedmont to provide stop sign(s) or some other mediation. The streets are in Piedmont because they are the border with Oakland. If you are interested, please let us know.
Who is new on your block? Do they know about PANIL?
Would you tell them? Maybe forward this newsletter to them or suggest that they look atwww.PANIL.org.Don't wait for National Night Out.
Traditionally, National Night Out has been, and will be again, the first Tuesday in August. The community-building event is organized by the City of Oakland to be an opportunity to bring people together and promote relationships between neighbors, city leaders, and law enforcement to make Oakland a safer place to visit, work, and live.
Let's use the PANIL meetings for that purpose, and let's use the newsletter to hear from with each other. Send Letters to the Editors to Contact@PANIL.org. Letters will be edited for space and clarity and will appear in this column.
Parking Tickets Now Resuming
Oakland resumed issuing residential parking tickets on February 1, 2021 for street sweeping violations throughout the city.
For areas subject to Residential Parking Permits (RPP), one-time no-penalty warning citations will be issued to those parked overtime without permits. Tickets with fines will be imposed upon a second violation.
If you live in RPP Area “A” in the PANIL neighborhood (see map) and do not yet have your RPP, information on getting your permit(s) is here. As a mitigation for the traffic impacts of its operations in the neighborhood, Kaiser Permanente pays for the RPPs of addresses as far north as 41st Street. Neighbors living north of 41st Street pay the standard fee for their RPPs. For information on paying or contesting a parking citation, go here or call (800) 500-6484.
Block faces marked in red are in Residential Parking Permit Area “A.” Kaiser pays for RPPs for addresses north to 41st Street as mitigation for the healthcare giant’s traffic impacts on the area. Neighbors living beyond 41st Street pay the standard fee for their RPPs.
