25 YEARS AGO: Twenty-five acres of orchards were being prepped for 84 homes in Oakdale’s bottom land along River Road. The Stanislaus County Local Agency Formation Commission had approved the annexation of 61 acres, with 25 of it slated for the subdivision. Oakdale’s City Council had to hold a protest meeting for residents to speak in favor of or against the project. For the project to be approved, fewer than 25 percent of residents could disapprove. If 25 percent to 50 percent disapproved, it would go to an election. And if more than 50 percent of all residents disapproved, the project would automatically be killed.
