    I noticed on the city planning page that a developer was seeking approval to build residences on the agricultural land south of Eight Mile and east of West. Presumably the commuters there would be added to 99 southbound on their way to Bay Area.

    To cut down on smog for vehicles the City of Stockton and the Northbrook Developers (Woodside Homes) need to fix the intersection of Lower Sacramento Road and Marlette Road to allow left turns. As this housing development increases more and more vehicles traveling North on Lower Sacramento must go to 8 mile road,then left turn onto Marlette Road. This adds more auto pollution and forces most residence in this area to not go towards South Stockton due to no easy return to this area. The Developer has already paid the City for the improvements for this intersection but when will it get done? As the Develop builds another 200 homes, this situation gets worse.

    This was basically turned down by the City of Stockton.

    Outline of Maritime Development
    Create a place for interesting historic vessels that are bar/restaurants, bed and breakfasts,
    card rooms, and possibly a full sized Noahs Ark. The area that would work is the downtown area next to the Arena and yacht harbor. The area is controlled by the yacht harbor which is losing money. We presently have the bar and restaurant vessel, the bed and breakfast vessel (which is a National Historic Landmark) and a survey vessel that chartered in Alaska. The sizes are 145′, 175′ and 120′. Our vision is to have many more vessels some of which are in the bay area now. If we include Noahs Ark our surveys indicate 1,200,000 attendance the first year, 460 jobs, and gross receipts of 42 million.
    For the initial 3 or more vessels the docks are in place, most of the utilities are there, it would cost the City of Stockton nothing and would give the marina income.
