When I first moved to Lodi 15 years ago I thought it was a very nice town. But it’s been deteriorating. Most of the nice neighbors I had sold their houses. It’s sad that the new home owners are just horrible people. We are considering moving because it’s so bad. Parking is another issue now because all these new people have multiple cars they save spaces for their other cars! Not a hello or even a nod when confronted with these people. It’s a shame because you can see the difference year after year. Waiting for our children to finish school and we’re out!

The public school system is pretty awful to students. Most schools don't have air conditioning except in offices and they make parents pay for school uniforms they make you buy from a specific store and your children WILL miss classes without them. Judging by the obvious degree of nepotism in local government I suspect he knows someone in the board of education. That's what you get, I've been told, in exchange for some pretty darn high property taxes. The same few families have run the local government for several generations.

Crime-wise it's not exactly ghetto but it's not the best either. You'll hear about someone getting shot every few years or so, you hear about drug dealing and trafficking at about the same rate. But generally speaking, it's safe to walk the streets and such.

The town is small enough that you can walk just about anywhere or drive anywhere. Ony about 2 buses run through it though.
Quiet, clean and close to stores and new shopping centers are being built throughout the city. However parking is horrible!
