When: Wednesday, February 6, 2008.
Where: Del Mar Fairgrounds—at Wyland. Hall. There is a large whale mural on the building 2260 Jimmy Durante Blvd. Del Mar, CA 92014
What: Coastal Commission hearing that is our chance to stop the Toll Road through San Onofre State Park and Beach. With last week’s passage of federal legislation requiring the TCA to comply with state law, a “No” vote from the California Coastal Commission would be a killing blow to the Toll Road.
CC Says Toll Road Will Impact Surf Break!
“A review of the TCA’s newly submitted Runoff Management Plan reveals that it is quite probable an increase in fine sediment will occur. Additionally, the flow velocities in San Mateo Creek are likely to be reduced. Either result will impact the continued existence of the cobble delta. Therefore, the Commission concludes that the proposed toll road will likely affect the specific mix of sediments, sands and cobbles thus resulting in an impact to the surfing resources.”
The report then goes on to say
“If adverse effects occurred, they would be unmitigable and irreversible.”
Again, this is the finding of the California Coastal Commission staff – an independent and non-partisan agency whose sole responsibility is to safeguard our beaches and coastlines, by enforcing the Califirnia Coastal Act.
