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.

Urge Regional Water Board to Deny Toll Road Permit
We need your help! The TCA is trying to build the first 5 mile segment of the 241 toll road. Many of you have sent letters to the Regional Water Board asking them to deny this foolhardy project. Next Wednesday the Regional Board will have a meeting to decide that permit and we need you there!

If you live in Southern California, come to the water board hearing next Wednesday, March 13th, at 9:00 a.m. and speak out against the toll road. The hearing will be held at

March 13th, 9:00 AM
Costa Mesa City Council Chambers
77 Fair Drive
Costa Mesa, CA 92626

You don’t need to speak (unless you want to) but a strong show of support will go a long way.
