Why would someone in Lodi and the greater County care to sign the Petition?  Because we are their neighbors and this project will have bigger impacts than just Acampo's backyard.  The size and magnitude of the offices, warehouses and industrial structures proposed would create an industrial 'feel' for a whole quarter of the Lodi Wine Trail and the small farm community of Acampo.  How is this a good thing for Lodi's successfully growing agri-tourism? It's not.  At this location, the project could forever limit Lodi's potential growth in this economic sector.  

 

At the proposed location, the size of this facility will industrialize the scenic and economically beneficial Lodi Wine Trail and negatively impact residents of the area.  In a more appropriate location, adjacent to major transportation routes or in an industrial zone, the facility would not have the same level of negative impact.  There are other sites available in the County that could allow for both the Lodi Wine region agritourism and large industrial scale agriculture to both grow and prosper without one having a negative impact on the other.    

 

Who has a voice for Lodi's Countryside? 

You do and so do the organizations below!  In addition to County Planning and Supervisors, let the below organizations know that this location is NOT ok for Lodi's Countryside!  There are other locations available that would preserve the beauty of the Lodi Wine Trail, preserve rural character for the residents and small farmers of the region and still allow for the magnitude of the proposed project.
