Salida puts its dreams in petition

There are 5 comments on the The Modesto Bee story from May 23, 2007, titled Salida puts its dreams in petition. In it, The Modesto Bee reports that:

“We're trying to find a pathway to get out of their pockets”

Whether Salida doubles in population, prompting a 10-lane expressway from Highway 99 toward Riverbank, could be decided by voters throughout Stanislaus County in November. via The Modesto Bee

I would like to know would any like to be able to by food that is afforable
If farm land is cemented over for homes and businesses,where does the food come from? Another country? How much does your gas cost.What do you think they will charge us for food. I have lived here in salida for over 30 years. I have seen it change and a lot of it not for the better. Why does everone want to make the developers richer? why do new people move into places that are quit happy as they are and the new people want to change everything why don't they move into a city that has every thing that
they want and live this town alone. I know it is not a town.
So the developers will save 1 acre of land not in salida but some land that wont grow any thing. The waterpark the traffic will be so bad trying to get to the park. A 10 lane expressway with a stop sign on every courner. This county can't fix the roads now and get the traffic under control now. It will be worse. If our supervisors want to fix this county
go to stockton and talk to them. Stop with express ways and build a freeway from 132 to oakdale with 99 interchange and a enterchange to
yousomite blvd. That would take care of alot of traffic.
It is not fair to have the whole county to voit on this only the people of
salida should be able to vote it concerns us. We are the ones to have to but up with this mess.

Sure, let's never change anything...let's always stay dependant on the county for everything. Let's continue to pay high property taxes and mello roos and have no say in how that money gets spent, because we have no governing voice. Instead of incorporating, let's let Modesto swallow us and all the possible revenues we could bring in (like the Kaiser Hospital...that money could have been Salida's!)
Seriously, if we don't act now, their won't be a Salida, Modesto will continue to grow and make us a part of it.
Change is good, it's necessary and yes, there are growing pains, but we become stronger in the end.

They should bulldoze Salida. There is nothing there anyway. The salida town council is filled with overweight puds.

You are an idiot. Redding is where losers hang out.

Rogers goes to far, but Salida could use some new growth. "overweight puds" although it is a cheap shot, the central valley would do well to push away from the table. I think San Francisco was the most fit in the state.
