Support to Save the Park remains as strong as ever!
After 15 years of hard work by thousands of passionate advocates, the Surfrider Foundation and Save San Onofre Coalition signed a historic settlement agreement that forever saved the Trestles surf break and San Onofre State Beach. This agreement protected a state park enjoyed by millions that contributes more than $8 million annually to the economy of San Clemente. The settlement brought an end to one of the most hard-fought environmental battles in California history, protecting the coastline for current and future generations.
Recent poll results confirm strong opposition to a toll road through San Onofre State Beach, with 77% of those surveyed in Congressional District 49 opposing a toll road through the state park and 62% strongly opposing.
When given two choices – to build additional toll roads to help relieve congestion or to protect state parks and beaches, 77% of those surveyed support the protection of state parks and beaches, including 70% in the city of San Clemente and 80% in northern San Diego County.
Congressman Darrell Issa recently stated that he would like to undo the historic Settlement Agreement and, by doing so, to force a road through San Onofre State Beach. When informed of the Congressman’s attempt to invalidate the Settlement Agreement, the reaction in his District was negative by a large margin. Almost three-fourths of those surveyed (73%) oppose the Congressman taking this action.
