First Important Public Hearing in Stopping the Toll Road

Mark your calendars now!! The California Coastal Commission will be hearing the application for the proposed toll road in October at a hearing in San Pedro (near the LA Harbor). The California Coastal Commission is a very important regulatory agency that oversees development along California’s coast. Literally, this is one of the most important meetings in regards to stopping the toll road through San Onofre State Park; and we need throngs of people to attend! In order to get people from all over Southern California to the hearing, the Surfrider Foundation and Sierra Club are renting Charter buses. In addition, we will have Save Trestles tee-shirts for everyone, signs/banners, and talking points for people who want to speak during public comment period. Remember, you can still attend the hearing even if you do not testify. Our main objective is to have an enormous presence.

The exact date for the meeting has not been set, but we do know the application will be heard between October 10 -12. We will send an official e-vite soon so you can RSVP space on the bus. In the meantime, mark your calendars for this very important meeting and start thinking about ways to “call in sick to work” so you can join us on this fun and meaningful adventure!
