On August 8, 2017, the Modesto City Council will consider the 6/8/16 Healthy Economy Committee recommendation to maintain the current / 1995 general plan boundary.
Here is the pdf from the email we received GPA-10-001 CC Public Meeting Notice 8-8-17 SIGNED (1) Being it’s difficult to find and without the Committee’s specific (no maps or detailed references were provided) recommendations and any discussion it’s hard to know what to think. I do remember when this conversation was going on during a Planning Commission meeting, we were blindsided by a massive expansionist effort propelled by the Modesto Chamber of Commerce, led by Craig Lewis. And on 8/2/17 they are going to give Mr. Lewis a high profile position on the Stan COG Measure L Citizens Oversight Committee.
