Very Important California Coastal Commission Hearing

In early February, the California Coastal Commission will hear an application for the toll road project. This is THE most important hearing in regards to stopping the toll road and we need hundreds of people to attend. The hearing will take place in San Diego, but the exact date and time has not been set. We will keep you posted.

In the meantime, please take some time to do two things. First, if you haven’t already, send this quick letter to the Coastal Commission? Here is the link: http://actionnetwork.org/campaign/tollroad_ccc_07

Then, create a quick You-tube video telling the California Coastal Commission why you want to Save Trestles and San Onofre State Park and upload it to our site: www.youtube.com/savesanonofre.

Here's what to do:

1) You don't necessarily need a video camera. Most cell phones or still digital cameras will work.

2) Go to www.youtube.com and Create an Account.

3) Once you have created your account, record yourself, family and friends, talking to the Coastal Commission, telling them to Save the Park and Stop the Toll Road. If they have personal experience with the park, they should include that in their message.

4) Connect your camera or phone to your computer, and save your video to your hard drive.

5) Go to http://www.youtube.com/my_videos_upload

6) Fill out the information regarding your video. To make it easier for others to find, put “San Onofre” in the title, and add San Onofre, sanonofre and Trestles to the space where the site asks for Tags.

7) Click “Browse,” select the video you saved in your computer, and click “Upload Video.”

8) Go to http://youtube.com/group/savesanonofre. Click the ‘Join This Group” link. Click ‘Add Videos’ and select the video you uploaded!
