RDA Corrects Avenue Tree Well Trip Hazard

Thursday, January 9, 2014

After working four years with the city of Oakland, the Rockridge District Association (RDA) gained permission to bring College Avenue tree wells to grade.

These wells have been a safety issue for years, largely due to the tree well enlargement program on College and in other areas of Oakland. The contractor performing the work failed to backfill the wells to sidewalk height, creating sharp drop-offs at the well edge, leading to many turned ankles and broken bones. The problem also exists on Piedmont Avenue.

Security Ambassadors for College Avenue

Thursday, November 7, 2013

The Rockridge District Association (RDA) wants our neighbors to know that we have started our security ambassadors program a little earlier this year.

The RDA has contracted with VMA Security Group, an Oakland company, to provide unarmed security ambassadors who will help make your time on the Avenue even more enjoyable during the holidays. They will not only help keep us safe but will provide assistance with directions and other information for shoppers.

Please take a minute to respond to a short RCPC survey soliciting information on what public safety-related topics Rockridge residents are interested in learning more about, when are convenient times to gather and whether and how you'd be interested in discussion summaries, etc. being made available (particularly for those not able to attend such meetings).
