Southern California Edison announced earlier this month that they are fully funded to complete the 20 year and 4.4 Billion dollar decommissioning plan of San Onofre Nuclear Power Plant.
There will be a public meeting on Thursday August 28 2014 in Oceanside at 6:00pm. The meeting will be held at the
Quantum Learning Network Conference Center
1938 Avenido del Oro
Please arrive early. These meetings tend to fill up quickly. When there was public meetings at the St. Regis Hotel in Dana Point last year, they refused to let many community members in because the room was full. Eyewitness accounts told us that the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station was represented on the Panel at that meeting and was also represented with mostly their employees in the audience. When their employees attend the community meetings this does not allow community members to attend the meetings.
To Learn more about the Post Shut Down Decommissioning Activities Report that Southern California Edison submitted to The Community Engagement Panel please connect on the following link.

San Clemente Seeks Public Input on Local Coastal Program Tonight at 6:00pm at Community Center


The City of San Clemente is pleased to announce efforts to update its Local Coastal Program. The adoption of a new Local Coastal Program will give the City more control over approving projects within the City’s Coastal Zone and will streamline the Coastal Development Permit review process. The City’s Local Coastal Program is a planning document similar to the General Plan but specific to the Coastal Zone of the City. The Local Coastal Program, prepared in partnership with the California Coastal Commission, is a basic planning tool used by San Clemente to protect coastal resources and guide development in the Coastal Zone.
During the development of the Centennial General Plan, emphasis was placed on compliance with the Coastal Act and realization that our coast is a precious and finite resource that is a fundamental part of San Clemente’s identity. We each have our favorite beach, place to surf, play volleyball, walk, and enjoy the sunset. We need your participation to share with us your unique perspective about what you value most about San Clemente’s coast and what topics are the most important to you to address in the new Local Coastal Program.
The workshop is scheduled for 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 21st at the Ole Hanson Fireside Room located at the San Clemente Community Center at 100 N. Calle Seville. Staff will present the Local Coastal Program Update goals and process and provide an opportunity for public input and discussion of the major issues including: natural habitats, beaches, bluffs, coastal canyons, water quality, scenic resources, recreation, beach access, sea level rise, beach culture, visitors, and more.
