We Fight Blight

After years of seeing the negative effects of blight on North Oakland and South Berkeley, I thought I would fight back with the We Fight Blight Blog. The purpose of this blog is quite simple and includes the following:

  • Provide like-minded residents, neighbors, businesses and others with easy access to the tools and information needed to fight blight in North Oakland and South Berkeley;
  • Provide a better understanding of the anti-blight ordinances in Berkeley and Oakland;
  • Provide tips for navigating the bureaucracies and the police departments of Berkeley and Oakland to get a better more coordinated response to on-going blight problems;
  • Provide the contact information to those in the local government and the police departments that can help you fight blight;
  • Provide a Hall of Shame of the worst blight offenders; and
  • Provide a forum for you to share your concerns, sagas and successes about fighting blight in South Berkeley and North Oakland.
