Do you remember in 2008 when the state and federal government denied the TCA’s toll road? Well apparently the TCA doesn’t, because now they want to build the road in “segments”. TCA’s “segment” plan is simply a guise to build the entire road down to San Onofre State Beach–plus there are major environmental impacts with this segment of the road. TCA recently filed an environmental permit to build the first 5 miles (this is one of many permits they need to complete the project).
The hearing will be held on Wednesday, March 13th starting at 9am at the Costa Mesa City Council Chambers, located at 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. We encourage you to arrive early if you plan to testify so you can fill out a speaker slip. If you don’t plan to speak, please come any time in the morning. TCA will give their presentation sometime after the meeting starts at 9am and an organized presentation from environmentalists will be given directly after TCA, followed by public comment (which is when you can speak). Please wear either a blue shirt or an old Save Trestles shirt for solidarity.
