"Think Inside the Triangle" - City Motto
With a population of about 85,000 (2015) people, the City of Tracy ranks as the 92nd most populous city in the State of California.
Tracy's history pretty much follows the development of the Railroad in California. The area was first inhabited by the Yokut Indigenous peoples. Most of the indigenous people fell victim to the white man's diseases or were shuffled off to reservations. In the early 1800's, the lands were part of Spanish / Mexican Haciendas - which morphed into Anglo-American Railroad land grants. From there, land parcels were sold to homesteaders, farmers and ranchers, mostly of European descent.
In the latter half of the 19th century, agriculture developed with sheep / cattle grazing and farming barley, tomatoes, asparagus, nuts and fruit as river irrigation was established. Large processing plants followed, providing ample employment for locals and beyond, for a time.
In the 1860s, a Mr. John Collins motivated the building of the first train-tracks through the valley.
Life would never, ever be the same. Lathrop Tracy, local railroad director motivated the incorporation of Tracy in 1910. Tracy grew rapidly and prospered as an agricultural area even when railroad operations began to decline in the 1950s. Beginning in the 1980s,
Tracy experienced a sudden growth spurt as people migrated to the city looking for affordable alternatives to the Bay Area - with a more tranquil lifestyle. Steady growth ensued, as many companies found Tracy to be the ideal location for product distribution facilities. The city is setting its sights on attracting newer industries, including hi-tech companies from Silicon Valley.
Tracy remained a regional railroad town and commerce center for local farms and ranches well into the 1970s. When growth in the Bay Area spilled over the Altamont, the small town of Tracy matured into the city of today.

“No marijuana here, in my opinion, would be less crime," - Lathrop homeowner Eugene Sevilla
Lathrop officials say the ban on growing pot in Tracy and San Joaquin County put Lathrop at risk of attracting more marijuana growing for medical use and other wise.
Lathrop has become the latest community in the area to ban the growing of marijuana for any reason, despite the state legalization of medical marijuana. State law allows medical pot patients or caregivers to grow a limited number of plants for medical use. But it also allows local jurisdictions to implement their own controls.
Lathrop police told the city council that there are dozens of complaints a month about the odor of plants as well as robberies, illegal sales and various other crimes associated with growing pot. He said medical marijuana patients can get their marijuana from dispensaries in other cities that have a better capacity to regulate growing and selling of pot.
