    The land is toxic the city couldn't put anything on it unless they come up with a large sum of money for the cleanup.

    Toward the beginning of the meeting, people who said they would like to see the area opened to the public were booed or talked over.
    As Lodi resident and occasional kayaker Kathy Ikeda shared her thoughts on the benefits of opening the property, a man told her to sit down.

    Sounds like some people are rude and have no courtesy to let others express their opinion.

    I Like what John Ring stated... Lodi was did well to get input from the community to determine the next step. Very constructive action to take.

    Attended the meeting last night. I didn't get the sense that we would see additional people on the tracks if this project ever came to fruition. I would think additional safeguards would be put in place to prevent people on the tracks. The main issues involve additional people accessing the site through the local neighborhood as well as the site being a former landfill. I am all for providing additional access for the paddlers and public but did not see anything last night that makes this site a good choice. Compliments to the city for bringing up the issue and starting up a dialogue on the subject. I would like to see the county take another hard look at the current boating regulations on the river. As we have more users on the river it is only a matter of time before we have another fatal accident with the current regulations. Too many users to not abide by the 5mph speed limitation prior to noon and particulary after 7pm. In addition jet skiers and power boaters to not slow down for "floaters" , paddlers and docks with boats parked. I would like to see that issue addressed before we provide additional access to the river.

    Unfortunately the City of Lodi is totally incapable of keeping trespassers off the railroad tracks and the railroad trestle. Would this not just draw more people to this area? Enough people have been killed by trains in this town, why invite more opportunity.
