At the MAC meeting the rash of burglaries in the area was discussed. There were eight that they knew of. Everyone needs to keep a watch out for anything suspicious and report it to the Sheriff. Also discussed by the California Highway patrolman was the help he was giving the school on safety. Josh Tucker from Stanislaus Consolidated Fire Department gave the 2012 statistics for our area. There were 128 calls from Station 2, most medical. Joshua Mann from the County Planning Department gave an update on the Agricultural Plan. As for Agricultural mitigation it is one acre developed, one acre for agriculture. Supervisor Bill O’Brien passed out a map showing the two zones for the town, inside the town’s core no minimum lot size, outside the core but still in the Historical District, a 5-acre minimum. There will be a meeting on this before it is finalized. The A T & T building expansion has the permits for building so something should be happening soon.
