Toll Road Update: Rancho Santa Margarita City Council STILL wants the Road!


Photo: RSM City. The Mayor who Hearts the Toll Road

Yep, you read it right. Rancho Santa Margarita still wants the road and the Mayor wishes the Park would go away....!



This week Surfirder had an interesting experience sitting through a City Council meeting where the Mayor and City Council of Rancho Santa Margarita doted over the toll road! They actually had an agenda item to: “discuss the status of the 241 and consider all means to ensure the project is moved forward in a timely manner”.

Surfirder was there to set the record straight in public testimony. We politely reminded them the project is inconsistent with both state and federal law and that the City should be considering some of the creative measures the Orange County Transportation Authority put forward in their Major Investment Study to relieve traffic.

Here is an article from the Orange County Register.

During the meeting, the Mayor flippantly said: “there is a high chance THAT Park will go away very soon” (meaning the Camp Pendleton will not renew the Park lease)….then, he continued to rant about the need for the road and essentially blamed “the Trestles and State Parks people” for making such a stink about the project and subsequently bringing undue public attention/scrutiny to the project .

So, congratulations to YOU, you “Trestles and Parks People” for raising awareness about the horrible impacts of this road and ultimately halting the project from going forward!! If you live in Rancho Santa Margarita, please take a moment to send a very polite, nicely worded, email to the Mayor reminding him that the road doesn’t stand up under state and federal law….AND that as a citizen of Rancho Santa Margarita you are disappointed they wasting City time talking about a dead project.

Here’s the City email list….

In other News….Come and Explore Maps of Marine Protected Areas with the Surfrider Foundation!

After a year of ‘map-making’ and planning, the Marine Life Protection Act (MLPA) process is in the home stretch. Local stakeholders are putting final touches on the maps and will come up with three different proposals. The three proposals will ultimately be forwarded to the Fish and Game Commission where they will vote on one map they think will work best for southern California.

This is one of your last chances to give meaningful input on where marine protected areas should be located! Please join Surfrider to learn more about the Marine Life Protection Act and to discuss the proposed maps. After the community forums, Surfrider will compile all constructive comments into a letter that will be sent to decision makers before the final vote. We need to hear from you!

Agenda:

  • 7:00-7:10—Welcome and brief overview.
  • 7:10-7:20—Summary of Surfrider’s outreach efforts over the past year and what we learned from local communities and Surfrider supporters.
  • 7:20-7:40—Overview and discussion of each map.
  • 7:40-8:00—Questions & Answers.

About the Marine Life Protection Act

The MLPA is a law that requires the state to establish a “network” of marine protected areas from Oregon to the Mexican border. The goals of the MLPA are to: ‘set aside’ areas of the ocean to increase fish populations, enhance marine habitat, and to improve recreational and educational opportunities. Over the past year, Surfrider has been working with diverse groups of people including recreationalists, fishermen, environmentalists, and Chapter activists to ensure the law is effectively implemented.
