How to actually DO something for your kids.

Sorry.. I linked some people here to listen to Clint Eastwood.. that’s here.. 

Here is a letter from  Stefanie Sekich of Surfrider regarding the California Costal Commission’s meeting to seal the fate of San Onofre State Park… Yes.. San Onofre like in the Beach Boys song..

.. oh and here’s a quote from one of the toll road officials: “”We are not trying to put down a state park,” MacLean said, “but this is not Yosemite.”

The hearing will start at 9am and will go all day.  If you are not driving with our bus/carpool you can show up whenever you want.

As you may know, it’s very challenging to know how long the meeting will take.  Public hearings can take a few hours, or can go into the night.  It’s all speculative. However, even if you can show up for an hour, that is helpful.  The more people we have there the bigger the impression we make on the Commissioners– and at this point, public pressure is key to stopping the toll road.

If you are driving yourself, please note there is a $9 parking fee.  However, we will be offering supporters (people who sign in at our booth) $5 in cash to help offset parking cost. This will be “on a first come, first served basis.”.  We will also be passing out lunch tickets on a first come, first served basis.”.  We will have a check in station where you can get a tee shirt as well. Feel free to bring your own signs, but we will also have some.

This is a once in a life time chance to be part of such a HUGE meeting.  We anticipate hundreds of people will attend.  We truly appreciate your flexibility and willingness to take time off of work to show your support for Trestles and San Onofre State Park.
