SLO BOS Vote to  Allow Public Works to Determine Avila Traffic Impacts 
At the Board of Supervisors meeting today, July 19, 2016, the BOS voted 5-0 to accept Planning and Pubic works proposals, which CC4A supports. This is a great relief for all those involved in working hard to normalize traffic evaluation for Avila. 

We commend County Planning and Public Works for all their hard work.
Nearly 60 Concerned Citizens for Avila came to the County Board of Sups meeting today.

PG&E Meeting on Diablo Canyon Closure 
Chance to Comment on  Conservation of Wild Cherry Canyon

Wednesday, July 20
12:00 pm - 3:45pm
(repeated 4:15 - 8:00 pm)
Embassy Suites, 333 Madonna Road, SLO
PG&E is holding hearings to discuss Diablo Canyon's closure. Although many people will come to talk about other closure issues, if we don't show up and ask for the protection of the Diablo lands, PG&E might proceed without community input and this could mean a bad outcome for the land. We need your help to:
  • Urge PG&E NOT to transfer land title for Wild Cherry Canyon to HomeFed, the developer holding a long-term lease.
  • Urge instead the conservation of all Diablo Lands, including Wild Cherry Canyon. 
Transfer of the land title for Wild Cherry Canyon would facilitate development.
 
County voters, in 2000, strongly supported Measure A/Dream Initiative which urged PG&E to conserve the Diablo lands, all of them, including Wild Cherry Canyon, upon the plant's closure.
 
Please wear royal blue shirts to show unity.
