We’ve talked before about the Surfrider Foundation’s efforts to stop a proposed toll road that would wipe out Trestles,a world-famous surf break, and destroy 60% of the acreage at San OnofreState Beach, the fifth most visited state park in California. In February, the California Coastal Commission voted to deny the 241 Foothill South Toll Road. Unfortunately, the agency planning this Toll Road has appealed the Coastal Commission’s decision to the U.S. Secretary of Commerce and that hearing is next Monday, September 22.
If you live in Southern California, please try and make the hearing. If you can’t make it, or don’t live in the area, visit Surfrider’s Action Network to voice your opinion.
WHO: Surfrider Foundation activists, surfers, hikers and everyone who opposes the extension of the 241 Toll Road.
WHAT: The U.S. Secretary of Commerce rescheduled public hearing regarding the controversial 241 Toll road extension.
WHEN: Monday, September 22, 2008 10:30 AM – 8:30 PM
