This is in regards to the upcoming development at Harney Lane and Hutchins Street. This is not the “Field of Dreams”; if you build it they will not come — at least I won’t, my wife and children won’t and hopefully my friends and neighbors won’t.

This seems like such a bad place to put such a facility, but really has the City Council ever met a development it didn’t like? I cannot think of any. The developments are always described as good for the people of Lodi.

Who is going to pay for the infrastructure — water, sewage, electrical and any road improvements — involved with the project? The article I read said there would be further development along this area. Any neighbors who plan on remaining in the agriculture business may be leery of easements, variances or any other type of good neighbor agreements. The city would never use eminent domain, unless they wanted.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
