An Access Center provides a gateway to:
“Helping create a Win/Win for the City of Lodi community”
The City of Lodi (“City”) Community Development Department, through its Neighborhood Services Division, has engaged in a citywide informational campaign, broadcasting information and gathering feedback instrumental to developing long-term solutions to homelessness in our City. A vital ingredient, and considered as the first component of a long-term solution, centers on the development of an Access Center. This Release is the third in a series to provide information about the Access Center to the Lodi community.
The Lodi Access Center community survey is now live and accessible through the City’s website in both English and Spanish at http://lodi.gov/1037/Lodi-Access-Center. We encourage everyone to take the survey and share with friends and family as well. We want to have a large community response to ensure all voices are heard. Only one submission per Person/IP address will be accepted. The Survey is scheduled to close July 6, 2021 at 5pm.
Where will the Access Center be located?
We understand that the main question raised by the Lodi community has been the Access Center’s proposed location. The Community Development Department is evaluating three sites to potentially house a Lodi Access Center. Below is the list of pros and cons for each of the three proposed locations. Visual drawings of each site can be found on the City’s website under the header “Potential Site Locations” at http://lodi.gov/1037/Lodi-Access-Center.
Site 1: Century Blvd - Surplus right-of-way
Site 2: 710 N Sacramento Street
Site 3: Thurman Street and Guild Avenue
Following further evaluation of the three site options and community input, City staff will present the recommended site at a community meeting tentatively scheduled for the end of July 2021. More information on the community meeting will be provided in the next press release.
For more information, contact the Community Development Department, Neighborhood Services Division at NeighborhoodServices@lodi.gov. Also, please look for informational flyers in the mail in the coming weeks.
