Much of Downtown Lodi — especially School Street — is adorned with cobblestone brick sidewalks with bright yellow cement. However, since the sidewalks were created about 15 years ago to help beautify the Downtown area, they’ve become quite dirty. Stains on the yellow portion of the sidewalks are the most visible.
The new-and-improved Downtown area was constructed in the late 1990s. The movie theater complex at North School and West Elm streets became the jumping-off point for other Downtown businesses to follow when the complex, known as Lodi Stadium 12, opened in July 2001.
