Fill out this form to request to have new Legislation formed to stop the toll roads from destroying our cities in South Orange County

[your custom message]

I am asking that you sponsor legislation to protect South Orange County from being destroyed by the Transportation Corridor Agency (TCA).

I am asking for you to sponsor legislation to ensure the following:

That there will be no toll road constructed within 1,500 feet of schools.

That the powers of eminent domain be stripped from the TCA.

That the TCA cannot build through already-mitigated land, already mitigated land can not be re-mitigated. This is clear violation of property rights. Mitigation land that OC developers paid handsomely for protect quality of life and aesthetics and cannot be re-mitigated. This would set a terrible precedent for Orange County.

No toll road can be built if the citizens have voted against the road.

"Form of Protective Legislation" for San Clemente, San Juan Capistrano, Unincorporated Ladera Ranch::

"Section 66484.4 is added to the Government Code to read:

Section 66484.4. Notwithstanding any provision of law to the contrary, a joint powers agency empowered under Government Code section 66484.3 shall have no authority to construct, fund or operate a major thoroughfare within the Cities of San Clemente, San Juan Capistrano, Ladera Ranch which: (1) impacts land designated as open space in the General Plan; (2) impacts lands previously reserved to mitigate impacts to threatened or endangered species; (3) impacts lands otherwise inhabited by threatened or endangered species; (4) requires the condemnation of existing residences or businesses for public rights-of-way; (5) impacts views of the Pacific Ocean or open space from any residence or business; or (6) increases traffic impacts on local streets."

Thank you for your consideration of this important matter. All of South Orange County is being terrorized by this agency—our homes, schools, parks, and open space are all endangered by TCA’s utter disregard. Building a toll road through already-developed neighborhoods would cause great harm to our quality of life and decrease our home values significantly. Additionally, there is much documentation of the ill health effects to children who go to school under freeways.

What’s more, the TCA has not allowed the required public input for this process. They have not been transparent, refused to answer questions concerning the project, and have irresponsibly spent millions of dollars (including our tax dollars) on consultants instead of doing their jobs. They waste additional monies on advertising to create the impression that these routes are needed. Sadly, the TCA has not conducted ANY traffic studies to demonstrate a need, and ignore the fact that they would be building a destructive road to a NEW traffic jam.

We ask that you facilitate this legislation and force this out-of-control agency—that’s wasting so many of our tax dollars—to stop terrorizing our communities.

Thank you.
