Phillips 66 Rail Terminal Public Hearing on Monday, March 13

On March 13 starting at 9 AM the San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors will consider whether to uphold their Planning Commission's decision to reject Phillips 66's proposal for a rail spur that would bring dangerous crude oil trains through Santa Barbara County. Please join SBCAN and many other organizations and individuals to urge the Board to uphold the denial.

We understand that speakers who request just one minute will speak first, followed by those who want two minutes, and lastly, those who want three minutes. The public hearing may last beyond the first day, but people requesting to speak need to turn in their speaker slips on the first day.

SBCAN has been working against this rail terminal for nearly two years. In July 2015 we published this report "Impacts and Risks from Oil Trains and the Phillips 66 Rail Spur Project" detailing the potential impacts of the project in Santa Barbara County. It focuses on the impacts and risks in Santa Barbara County of existing oil-train traffic and the increased impact and risks that could occur if the project is approved.

Please join us!
