LODI – Seventy-four percent of Lodi residents consider the city a “good” or “excellent” place to live, according to the 2007 Lodi Citizens Survey conducted by the Boulder, Colo.-based National Research Center.

Tom Miller, head of the National Research Center, gave the Lodi City Council an overview of the survey results at the council’s July 31 study session. The survey was mailed to 1,200 residents with 336 households responding. The 30-percent response rate gave the survey firm a margin of error of plus or minus 5 percent.

The results are intended to help city leaders assess and boost resident satisfaction with city services.
