Trestles Update

April 7th, 2008

Back in February you helped the California Coastal Commission take the advice of its staff and vote 8-2 against the proposed toll road through San Onofre State Beach. Unfortunately, this wasn’t the end of the story, as the Orange County Transportation Corridor Agency quickly filed fresh papers to appeal the decision with the U.S. Department of Commerce, and successfully pressured Governor Schwarzenegger to remove actor Clint Eastwood and Schwarzenegger’s brother-in-law Bobby Shriver from the California State Park and Recreation Commission, which has long opposed the proposed freeway project through San Onofre State Beach. Stay tuned, the fight isn’t over yet to keep the Foothill-South 241 toll road out of the backcountry of San Onofre and the Trestles-fed San Mateo Creek.
