After years of being vacant, there are plans to put a furniture store and a tanning salon in the buildings on Sacramento Street, across from the Lodi Transit Center.

The buildings surround what used to be Rashid Imports, which burned down in 2004.

    20 years ago, Downtown Lodi was a ghost town at night and was not much better in the day time. Nobody went there. Today, it is a pleasant place to go to and even take evening walks in comfort and safety.
    I normally work near the Lodi Theater and have an office there. I park in the Sacramento Street garage and walk to work, and at times, leave my car there for days at a time. It feels pleasant to be in the downtown area and am thankful for the redevelopment that took place. Granted, Sacramento Street could be much better and it is a shame that more attention has not been given to it. However, in the big picture, it is much better than it used to be. Hopefully the concerns of these posts will be addressed and make it even better.

    Here's a great pic of Sacramento St. quite a few decades ago. The busy train station is to the left. Lodi did not do a very good job in transitioning the street once passenger train service stopped.

    Such a lovely sight to see in Lodi is to disembark from Amtrak or Greyhound and look across Sacramento street and see that ugly hole in the groud with garbage and dirt dumped in it. Where is code enforcement on this ugly hole?

    Workers are also remodeling the building next door to turn it into a furniture store

    It won't be no Robb and Stuckey. In fact, it will probably be cheap furniture even K-Mart won't sell.

    If Lodi had never abandoned Sacramento St. when passenger rail service began to decline
    and thus turned it into SKID ROW we wouldn't be still having this conversation about the revitalization of Sacramento St. Once just as bustling as School St and not considered taboo to venture on, Sacramento St is and will remain the Red-headed stepchild of Lodi.
    When passenger rail service declined, many towns chose not to abandon the areas close to the old rail station. How much longer will it take for the powers to be to realize
    if they had just maintained Sacramento St. it would have remained an extension of School St.
    Oh how hindsight is 20/20.
