I'd like to have some input on Lodi, Ohio! I visited there last May and loved the area but would like to have some honest opinions from people who actually live or have lived there before I invest.

Cool Great little town

I live not to for from Lodi. I find it to be a great little town . Located just a hop skip and jump from I-71, 224, 421 and Rt. 83 goes right thru the middle of it. Plus its a town with some history. The locaol lumber yard is the only place I'll buy any wood that I may need, called of course " Lodi Lumber ". Nice bunch of folks there, they know thier jobs. They have they're on community hospital as well. And if you enjoy doing a little shopping, go to south of town to the Outlet Mall. I hope I helped some.

Smile RE: Lodi

I grew up in this town, a lot of my family still lives there. I am moving back, because I have realized this is where i want to raise my children. Good people with good "old fashioned" values. Great place if this is what you want.

I live a little east of Lodi. Lots of nice people, great school system, and homes go from under $100K to half a million. Something for everyone, and also an easy commute to Cleveland, Akron, or Columbus.

Thumbs up Bring your business to Lodi!

Having lived in Lodi for the past 28 years I can say that it has seen better times, but the opportunities are ripe for establishing a business. We have a downtown area that needs a little spit & polish and some wonderful old buildings, some unfortunately in significant disrepair, that would make the right person a great location to setttle into. We also have an industrial park on the edge of town that has yet to open since we are just getting water & sewer out to it. There are over 100 acres of relatively flat, (helping development costs), property that would make for a tremendous place to locare a business or industry. Adjacent to the industrial park are another 100+ acres currently for sale but in the township, not the village. We would work with someone who wanted to buy it (going rate is about 14K per acre) and help them annex it into the village. We can work out terms and you would enjoy the benefits of being in a 200 acre industrial park with village services along a divided highway, U.S. RTE. 224 and 5 minutes from the I71-I76 interchange which is the 4th busiest interchange in the country, 35 minutes from Cleveland or Akron and their respective international airports. We have our own water, sewer and electric plants and work to keep costs among the lowest in the region. Lodi is the last stop along I-71 through Medina County and is destined to grow. It doesn't mean we will lose our small town charm, but we know change will come and we embrace it as long as our growth is controlled.

If you think you might consider Lodi as a place to invest, you will likely find that the opportunities exist in a big way. The schools are great, housing (new and used) is available in various price ranges as mentioned by "gentlearts" and I think you would find it worth the trip. Here's hoping you stop by.
