50 YEARS AGO: It was reported that the Stanislaus County Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCO) approved the city of Modesto’s plans to annex 15 square miles in 1969. LAFCO approved the annexation of 303 acres, which included the Haig Berberian planned development area at Sylvan and Coffee roads. This would bring the city’s population to just over 60,000 residents, which it would exceed if other annexations were approved by the 1970 Federal Census.
