Modesto News: Modesto has a fight on its hands over farming enclave

The city has a fight on its hands with its proposal to designate hundreds of acres in the Wood Colony farming community west of Highway 99 for industrial and commercial development. More than 200 people turned out at Tuesday’s Modesto City Council meeting to oppose the plan. Mayor Garrad Marsh said during his decade on the council he could recall only a couple of other times when as many people turned out for a particular issue.
