Toll Road Proposal Rejected

GREAT NEWS! The proposal to put a toll road through San Onofre State Beach was rejected by the San Diego Regional Water Quality Control Board at a hearing yesterday. This is a huge win for the park.

The Water Quality board rejected a permit for the Transportation Cooridor Agencies (TCA) that would have allowed a six-mile expansion — the Tesoros Extension — of the Foothills South Tollroad. Opponents to the proposal felt this was just the first step towards a longer extension into the park and Trestles coastal habitat area.

Over 300 people attended the hearing to protest the toll road, and there were 6 hours of public testimony. Incredible!

Here is an article that sums up the hearing.

Thank you to all who helped to protect this park.
