Stanislaus Expanding Again

According to the Modesto Bee:

On Tuesday, the Stanislaus County Board of Supervisors approved an application to expand the county’s enterprise zone by 809 acres, with 620 acres in Turlock and 189 acres in Patterson. The enterprise zone provides tax incentives for companies that hire employees or purchase equipment. The current enterprise zone, approved two years ago, encompasses 67,509 acres. The Turlock area is part of the city’s Westside Industrial Specific Plan, and is scheduled for annexation to the city. The Patterson land is in three parcels: eight acres in the north area of the city where Highway 33 and Ward Avenue meet; 138 acres along Highway 33 between Olive and Sperry avenues and including downtown commercial areas; and 43 acres in the south, including commercially zoned property. The expansion needs the approval of the California Housing and Community Development Agency. The county can expand the enterprise zone by 10,126 acres, according to state rules on the zones.
