This conglomeration of wires, billboard, commercial enterprise and housing is typical of the lack of urban planning going on in Oakland. Fewer regulations seem in effect than, say, Berkeley where one has to fill out multiple forms to put up a garden fence, and neighbors all around get a say in how you do it. Some things cannot be avoided like telephone wires, and since the city is so rapidly expanding. Like a thirteen year old boy, whose mom cannot keep in long enough pants and big enough shoes, due to rapid growth, Oakland is like a lovely weed, filling in the cracks of East Bay with anything and everything. Let's see how it all turns out.
