The town is clean and the people are nice. Downtown Lodi has been renovated and is quite attractive. The City needs to rent out the shops connected to the parking garage. That would be a nice touch to the downtown area. I don't know what the holdup.
I was born in Lodi and have always liked Lodi. It is not perfect - it does have crime and even terrorists and gangs, too.
There are a lot of churches in Lodi. I would not want to live in a community with no churches and lots of bars and casinos.
