Thanks for all your help. However, UC Irvine’s Bren Center did NOT play host to the Commerce Department’s public hearing on the 241 Toll Road on July 25th. They feared that the turnout from supporters of San Onofre State Beach and Trestles would overwhelm the facilities at UCI, estimating that over 10,000 of you would show up. So the meeting has been moved. More on that in a bit. For now…
The Feds Need to Hear from YOU!
Federal public comment is open right now, and will be open until Oct 2.
The Surfrider Foundation has an action alert asking the Secretary of Commerce to uphold the Coastal Commission decision here: http://actionnetwork.org/campaign/tollroadappeal0408. If you have already completed this, their system will catch it.
And now for the moved meeting:
SECRETARY OF COMMERCE HEARING
SEPTEMBER 22 AT DEL MAR FAIRGROUNDS
WHO: Surfrider Foundation activists, surfers, hikers and everyone who opposes the extension of the 241 Toll Road. It is critical that toll road opponents register to speak and attend the hearing to show their strong support for San Onofre State Beach.
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
WHERE: O’Brien Hall at the Del Mar Fairgrounds 2260 Jimmy Durante Blvd. Del Mar, CA 92014

Even Eddie Vedder thinks it’s a good idea.
