40 YEARS AGO: It was announced that the Modesto City Council voted 5-1 to postpone a decision on the future of the Orchard neighborhood, north of Briggmore Ave. It was within the city’s general plan to extend sewer service to this new area of home development with the ultimate purpose of annexing the area into city limits. Sylvan School District leaders, environmentalist and other concerned groups pushed for the vote as it could lead to 6,000 to 9,000 new people within the school district’s boundaries, plus the potential for lost farmland due to development.
