Trestles hearing set for July 25

Trestles hearing set for July

A lot of surf companies sent employees to the previous hearing on Trestles, which helped sway the California Coastal Commission to vote against the toll road extension. A new date has been set for a federal hearing at UCI on July 25. The Surfrider Foundation says this hearing could stop the extension for good and public participation is key.


Here's the message from Surfrider:


The biggest hearing yet for 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!

We already won the battle, here in California, 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.

Now, we need to ensure the Federal Government supports important California environmental laws and upholds the Coastal Commission decision.

How do we do that?

By coming out in droves 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: savetrestles@surfrider.org with the subject line: buses to hearing. Please indicate if you want a bus from North or South San Diego County. If you want to leave from LA area, please RSVP: click here

Please make plans to attend the hearing at UC Irvine with your friends and family and stand up for Trestles, for state parks, and against the toll road.

Let's do it again--but even bigger this time!
