The city of Lodi owns 3.7 acres of land along the Mokelumne River that has been fenced off from the public for decades. For years, neighbors and police have had to deal with drugs, trespassers, vagrants and litter. At present, this parcel is an attractive nuisance and a neighborhood problem.

If the city developed the site as a kayak and canoe launch, most of the problems would be resolved. Nearby homeowners would discover their property values increased with a park just steps away. Our city, which is fast becoming a tourist destination, would be well served with more river access.

The city of Lodi has been negligent in not providing multiple access points to the Mokelumne. Lodi’s kayak club has more than 300 members, and they currently have very limited access to the river. This gorgeous piece of riverfront property already belongs to the city of Lodi, and it may be possible to obtain state funds to develop it.

Please let your city council members know if you would like to see this parcel developed for kayakers, fishermen, picnickers and all of the rest of the citizens of Lodi.
