Help Stop a Dangerous Oil Drilling Project

For a year and a half SBCAN has been commenting on the EIR for the PCEC project near Orcutt and urging denial of the project. A few months ago SBCAN teamed up with the Sierra Club to retain the Environmental Defense Center to represent us in this matter. With EDC's help and testimony from many of our own volunteers, we secured a Planning Commission denial of the project. Now it is before the Board of Supervisors for a second hearing on the appeal filed by PCEC.

It is crucial that we have a large turnout at this hearing on November 1 at 9 a.m. At the first Board hearing, people who got there after staff started reporting on the agenda item were not allowed to testify. Please get there before 9 to ensure you will be heard.
