Modesto to weigh chamber's economic development plan

-- Modesto will consider the Chamber of Commerce's economic development plan, which calls for more land for business parks and upgrading roads to attract jobs.

Chamber officials presented the plan Tuesday night before the City Council.

At the end of the presentation, Mayor Garrad Marsh said the plan will be sent to the city's Planning Commission for review. It also could be reviewed by the council's Economic Development Committee before coming back to the council.

City Manager Greg Nyhoff and council members thanked chamber officials for their hard work, soliciting input from a variety of groups and courage in taking a stand.
