The Oakland Zoo has become so popular it is becoming an issue for neighbors. One neighbor said "I don't like people parking in front of my house". The traffic is also causing traffic on the nearby I-580, the zoo parking lot fills up by midday on the weekends, ABC7 also reports that 900 new homes will soon be built near the zoo. Oakland City Councilman Larry Reid has plans to drive traffic west and wants to fast track the project.
