Top Ten Reasons the Toll Road Failed

From OC Weekly's Alex Brant-Zawadzki

They Didn't Pave Paradise: The top 10 reasons why the Foothill South Toll Road extension failed
By ALEX BRANT-ZAWADZKI
Thursday, February 14, 2008 - 3:00 pm
On Feb. 6, the California Coastal Commission voted 8-2 to deny the Transportation Corridor Agencies' (TCA) application for a Coastal Permit to build the Foothill South (Highway 241) toll-road extension. This was no surprise, as troubles with both the road and the TCA are legion. Now, this symphony of crap may yet have its coda: The TCA has appealed the decision to the Secretary of Commerce. But for now, here are 10 major reasons behind the road's downfall:

1. DOLLA DOLLA BILL, Y'ALL. The Coastal Commission calls San Mateo Creek "one of the most, if not the most, undeveloped and pristine coastal watersheds in Southern California." Rather than consider it priceless, the TCA offered a $100 million package to the California Department of Parks and Recreation to soothe the chafing-$30 million for various good works and $70 million to extend the San Onofre State Park lease from the Department of the Navy. Two problems: 1) The lease doesn't expire until 2021, and 2) there's no reason to suspect the Navy will charge the Department of Parks and Recreation any more than the $1 they charged for the first 50-year lease. So it's really a $30 million offer to destroy a state park.

I just read that the coastal commission denied the building of the toll road extension. I am extremely pleased to hear this but I am very worried now because I just found out that our Governnor Scwartzenegger has decided to close down some of our parks so he can balance the budget. I don't believe that for one minute in that he needs to do that to balance the budget. I am sick and tired of our politicians and their hidden agendas, and I think this one might possibly have something to do with the toll road. I am interested at what others might think about this. Is the Governor going to try to pull a fast one and give those @$$#%!%$ the green light to build that piece of garbage they call a toll road?????

Praise to the people for standing up and letting themselves be counted, and saving this beautiful and unique break. I was lucky enough to move to SoCal in 2006 so I have only been able to enjoy Trestles for a relatively short period of time, but long enough to fall in love with it and to be immensely relieved that the ridiculously shortsighted toll-road extension has been denied. Well done Surfrider for doing such a stunning job at raising awareness for this very important cause.
