Re “Plan for growth, reject Measure I” (Letters, Oct. 15): In a recent letter, the writer stated “Wood Colony is not under siege.” It made me wonder where this person has been since Jan. 28, 2014. He also stated “Wood Colony is on a freeway.” Yes, Wood Colony and its prime farmland, is adjacent to a freeway; does that make all land close to a freeway fair game for development?
This is why a yes vote on Measure I will stop the sprawl and promote smart growth around Modesto.
A yes vote puts how and where Modesto will grow in the hands of voters, not individuals backed by the Chamber of Commerce and developers.
A yes vote will not make Modesto “Less Safe” as some are implying. Measure I is a land-use issue that has nothing to do with public safety.
What is true about a yes vote on Measure I is stopping sprawl, protecting prime farmland and smart growth.
Please vote yes on Measure I
