Attend Regional Water Board Hearing June 19 in San Diego.


 Trestles and San Onofre need your time on June 19th to help persuade the Regional Water Quality Control Board to deny the TCA’s permit to build the first “segment” of their ill-fated toll road.  In 2008, surfers and activists organized the largest turn-out for a public hearing in State history—and when the Coastal Commission saw 3,500 people in the audience, they were persuaded to deny the plan.  We need to do that again! This time, we need hundreds of people to attend the Board meeting on June 19th so we can shut down this road once more.

If the first section of road is built, the “dominos” will fall and the rest of the road will be built down to San Onofre/Trestles.  

Surfrider is asking its supporters to attend the meeting at 1:00pm, and stay through the afternoon to demonstrate opposition to the road. Public comment will be taken shortly after 1pm. 
 
Stay up to speed here and contact Ssekich@surfrider.org or Mrauscher@surfrider.org

Find out which elected officials are either in favor of the toll road project, or simply looking in the other direction as it all unfolds, and let them know how you feel and why.

Don't let these people "wear you down" by repeatedly trying to pave Trestles! Find out if your local official supports this freeway and vote him or her out! Make the stand AGAIN to save what's left of our environment.

Save Trestles? The simple facts: Parking used to be free, there was no drop off lane(zone), there was a 80% chance that you would slip while going down the cliff, the call boxes actually worked, being a local actually meant you surfed there year round, 20 guys from El Toro/Mission were locals. No roads would be needed if no one drove here. If there were no freeway travel there would be no south county surfers and the guys from the north would turn around at main beach in laguna. Stop the toll road STAY HOME. Think about it, not being a D**k but facts are facts. Start the cause at your own home, track your storm drain and then check your local beaches water quallity, pay your taxes and put your equity back into your neighborhood. Vote um out if not like you but make them icons if they lobby for the cause like you. Unions and lobbys I mean Bully's and organized crime. Any ways as always, respect it and all is good smile and surf.
