Save Trestles Rally June 19th

trestles2

Trestles and San Onofre need at least one hour of your time on June 19th to help persuade the Regional Water Quality Control Board to deny the TCA’s permit to build the first “segment” of their ill-fated toll road.

In 2008, surfers and activists organized the largest turn-out for a public hearing in State history—and when the Coastal Commission saw 3,500 people in the audience, they were persuaded to deny the plan. We need to do that again! This time, we need hundreds of people to attend the Board meeting on June 19th so we can shut down this road once more.
