South Orange County Toll Road Backers Get New Hearing Before the Feds

In May, the Department of Commerce – despite TCA pleas to the contrary - announced that it would hold a Public Hearing on the toll road agency’s appeal to override the California Coastal Commission's rejection of the 241 Toll Road through San Onofre State Beach.

We have just received word that the Department of Commerce will hold its Public Hearing in the TCA's appeal of the Coastal Commission’s on July 24 and/or 25 at UC Irvine’s Bren Events Center.

At the Coastal Commission meeting in February, you all helped us make a resounding statement against the Toll Road… and your voices were critical then in convincing the Coastal Commission to decide against the Toll Road.

Now we need to do it again – but even bigger this time!

Please make plans to attend the hearing at UC Irvine with your friends and family and stand up for San Onofre, for state parks, and against the Toll Road.

We will let you know as soon as we have more specific information on the time, location, and details of the hearing.

Remember – Save the Park… Stop the Toll Road!
Regards,
Save San OnofreProtect California's Parks & Beaches
P.S. There will be a guided hike of the San Onofre area on June 28th at 10:30am. We will meet at the Trestles Beach Parking Lot at El Camino Real and Cristianitos. Email SSekich@surfrider.org or Marty@savesanonofre.com to RSVP.
