Wednesday night, the Lodi City Council took a first step to extend the city's sphere of influence to include the greenbelt area.

    SD-Sounds like we're a PERFECT match - maybe more than you even realize! You clearly already know the property owners on all 3 corners adjacent to us, so that'll give you a clue where to go. Come on by anytime after 5...we're looking forward to meeting you!

    Dixon,Susan Hitchcock has made it clear at her taskforce meetings that she doesn't need our cooperation to make our land into a greenbelt.She threatens us&treats us with disrespect when we disagree with her.This woman is a teacher...God help our children who are under her influence!

    In my mind this is simple, Either you believe that the market makes the best decision in the private sector or government makes the best decision. Beckman and Hitchcock have come out in favor of government.

    patton... How is it viable? Put a school near that imaginary GB line and I can no longer spray or sulphur. Then what?

    ART... I do NOT want LODI to ever buy my property. I want them to keep out!

    The last I heard Hitchcock, she wanted Lodi to become a Carmel. Good Luck! And by the way, all you farmers are here to stay because the city won't buy your property.

    Maybe the council has unilateral goals to ruin us farmers. They want to annex East for the college site! NO WAY

    ADAM....How did the Oddfellows contaminate the ground? I thought were a social/service organization like the Moose, or Masons. Did they take over a building that saat on already contaminated ground?

    If Susan is such a good principal, why is she blogging on LODI Unifieds timeclock?

    BOB.vote them out!!! I cannot!!!

    BlueShield will not come to Lodi. Hitchcock on her own told Blue Shield she would sue them if they moved to Harney. What would you do if the Mayor called you and told you that. Especially When Sttockton has done nothing but bend over backwards for them.

    Hey Farmers,
    Any word when Blue Shield will make it's decision?

    The Greenbelt is the idea of Hitchcock and Beckman. Doesn't sound right, he is bragging about his solution to create a greenbelt. Then he turns around and tells the farmers that his solution does does not mean a thing. One more unethical politician.

    May i ask what you thought was going to happen, what you expected?

  • posted at 3:26 am on Sun, Apr 2, 2006.


    Lodi Farmer--you are correct, i JUST meant up to Harney lane. Are you south of Armstrong?

  • posted at 3:25 am on Sun, Apr 2, 2006.


    To SD and Lodi Farmer---Here is what you should do now. Lodi cant annex unless the majority of landwoners vote in favor. Time to negotiate something where this can be revisited after the next general plan. CC might feel different down the road, things change

    To SD and Lodi Farmer--20 years ago Lodi put your land into Planned Rresidential Reserve so it should come as no surprise that Lodi is not changing its sphere to cover your land
