A resident in the neighborhood near Fattoria inquired as to why the "STOP" on the streets in this neighborhood were being repainted when the street is scheduled to be resurfaced in just a few weeks. Stanislaus County Public Works reported that another resident had complained about cars running the stop because the paint was so faded so Public Works repainted only a few in this area as a safety measure. The repainted stop pictured here is at the intersection of Fattoria and Vigna.
Salida MAC councilmember, Katherine Borges discussed and received approval from Stanislaus County Supervisor, Terry Withrow for placemarker signs for Salida and Wood Colony in July 2013. Other than two signs on Freeway 99 and one that is currently removed from Kiernan/Hwy 219, there are no other signs to denote the two LAFCO designated "Communities of Interest" boundaries. For example, on Murphy and Dakota, drivers don't know the boundaries of when they are leaving Salida and entering Wood Colony. Or on Sisk near Pelandale where the boundary is between Salida and Modesto. Councilmember Borges then submitted the request to Stanislaus County Public Works on August 12, 2013 and resubmitted again on March 17, 2014 at which point, the signs were ordered by Public Works Director, Matt Machado. Residents of Wood Colony chose the historic signs and Director Machado recommended the green municipal type signs for Salida. Four signs for Salida and three signs for Wood Colony were installed on May 15, 2014.
