Toll Road Hearing Postponed--TCA is Cornered

The Coastal Commission hearing regarding the proposal for the extension of the Foothill-South Toll Road has been postponed.

Therefore we will not attend the October 11th hearing.

The TCA asked for an extension on their application. They say they need more time to digest the Coastal Commission Staff report. That's probably because the staff report found the toll road couldn't possibly be done in an environmentally conscious way, and there was no amount of mitigation that could justify it!

In addition, we believe the TCA is back-peddling because they are intimidated by our efforts and recent victories! We beat them in San Diego when the City passed a resolution to protect San Onofre State Park. Then, the TCA continued to falter after a recent poll found 70% of Orange County voters do not support toll roads through State Parks. Plus, the TCA has been receiving bad press, and their newest attempt to throw $100 million at State Parks fell flat.

They are stalling—we are prevailing—but your continued supported is more important than ever!

We are encouraging supporters to be part of our “Virtual Hearing” by recording a message to the Coastal Commission, telling them you want to Save the Park and Stop the Toll Road. Go to:

Stay tuned for additional updates! We need your assistance in other ways very soon! We will keep you posted on when the hearing is rescheduled.

We want to thank everyone who came to the Paddle Out on Saturday. We had a great turn out and this is exactly the kind of event that keeps the pressure on the TCA. Of course, we’ll be planning more visible events in the near future to make sure the TCA knows we are not resting on our laurels!

Thanks again for your enormous help in opposing this destructive proposal and your efforts to protect San Onofre State Beach.

The road is passed max now, even with reduced use it's a horrible commute. Too bad the politicians lied for years about 'metro to Dulles', still waiting and it won't be in the most needed corridor.

Every Coastal Commission has their own policies on public access just as what you can expedite the beach and to what extent you can remain on the beach. In this way, it is constantly a good data before you go Park and San Onofre State Beach. You can routinely get every one of the actualities that you should from the zone Chamber of Commerce for the beach that you might want to go to. Online Advertising Firm |
