New Flash--Public Hearing Granted for Trestles

Very exciting news!

The Secretary of Commerce has granted a public hearing regarding the TCA's appeal of the California Coastal Commission decision. This is a huge boost for the Trestles campaign and a victory for the public. We owe this chance for another public hearing to you!

Thousands of you sent letters to the Secretary requesting a hearing--your overwhelming response played a significant role in helping the Commerce Department reach this decision--reaffirming the importance of public involvement. Toll road developers are opposed to a public hearing, preferring that a decision be made "behind closed doors"--proving they are less interested in hearing public concerns and more focused on pushing an ill-conceived proposal that does not meet California environmental law.

The TCA claims they didn't like the atmosphere at the Coastal Commission hearing. Yet, the TCA neglects to point out that hundreds of activists ceded their public comment time in deference to the Commission in order to ensure the Commissioners had plenty of time to deliberate and finish the meeting in a timely manner.

The CCC hearing drew more than 3,500 and was the largest in Commission history. Surfrider and our Coalition partners are planning for another large turnout at the Secretary of Commerce hearing to ensure the Federal Government sees first hand how many people are invested in protecting a State Park and a pristine watershed.

While Surfrider is energized by Secretary's decision to hold a hearing, we are focused and ready to keep the pressure on! The hearing will take place sometime during the summer or early fall. The location of the hearing will be either in Orange County or San Diego County. We'll keep you posted. Click hereto see an article from the LA Times. And click hereto see an article from the North County Times.

Thanks for your continuing support!
