Toll Road Backers Still Trying to Resurrect the Rejected State Park Superhighway!

The Department of Commerce's September 22 public hearing at the Del Mar Fairgrounds on the Toll Road is approaching quickly and the deadline for requests to speak is September 12. Somewhat peculiar to this hearing is the requirement that a physical copy of your request must be mailed to the Department of Commerce. We encourage you to send in your request to speak by the end of this week in order to allow sufficient time for the request to arrive. Make sure that your request contains your Name and Address. Send your request to the following address:

Thomas Street, NOAA Office
of General Counsel for Ocean Services
1305 East- West Highway, Room 6111
Silver Spring, MD 20910

Alternatively, you may email your Name and Address to by Sept. 7 and we will send your request for you.

Awareness Demonstrations

It is imperative that we generate a strong presence of opposition to the Toll Road for the 9/22 hearing. As such, we will be taking to the streets to bring attention, and attendance, to the coming hearing. At these demonstrations, we will be waving signs, holding surfboards, and constructing miniature plastic tents to emphasize the harm to the camping and surfing experience that would be wrought by the proposed Toll Road. We'll bring the supplies. All we need is your exuberance.
