Stop the toll road!
The biggest hearing yet for famed Southern California surf spot, Trestles, will take place Friday, July 25th at the Bren Center on the campus of University of California, Irvine. This hearing marks the next critical battle in a decade long fight to protect Trestles beach.
One battle has been won so far in protecting the beach, when the California Coastal Commission (CCC) struck down the toll road on grounds it violates the Coastal Act. But, the TCA refused to accept the CCC decision and has appealed it to the Federal Government.
Please help ensure the Federal Government supports important California environmental laws and upholds the Coastal Commission decision by coming out to the hearing on July 25th!!! Public participation and your voices were critical in convincing the Coastal Commission to deny the toll road. We need to apply the same pressure to the Federal Government--they must see first hand how many people are invested in protecting San Onofre State Beach and Trestles.
On the day of the event, Surfrider will be running buses from the LA and San Diego areas.
If you want to leave from San Diego, please RSVP at: email@example.com with the subject line: buses to hearing. Please indicate if you want a bus from North or South San Diego County.
