Save San Onofre Park at Federal Meeting in Del Mar Monday Sept 22nd

Let’s take a day off work Monday, September 22th and carpool to another meeting in Del Mar to save San Onofre State Park and Trestles Beach. In February, the California Coastal Commission voted against the Foothill South toll road, and the TCA has appealed to the Secretary of Commerce. The Federal Consistency Appeal hearing will be from 10:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. held at the O’Brien Hall at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, 2260 Jimmy Durante Boulevard, Del Mar, CA 92014 (just off I-5 in Del Mar at Via de la Valle exit).

Volunteer to drive your car to Del Mar or get a ride by calling 939-7257 or emailing Gene@Felders.Net and we’ll organize carpools. We want to arrive before 10 a.m. and get labels and signs from Sierra Club table.

The Sierra Club and Surfriders are also arranging buses leaving from San Clemente; those interested should email or call Robin Everett at 949-361-7534. A massive turnout may be key to ensuring the California Coastal Commission decision is upheld. No decision will be made at the meeting; the sole purpose of the hearing is to receive public views and input.

If you are opposed to a six lane toll roll go through the fifth most popular California State Park, San Onofre State Park, you should join us. According to the Los Angeles Times January 17, 2008 “In September, the [California Coastal] commission's staff recommended against approval, saying that building a six-lane toll road through San Onofre [State Park] would cause widespread violations of state environmental laws by threatening endangered species, marring natural resources and compromising recreational opportunities.”
