Unwanted railway spur, how pathetic


The public has shown the SLO County Planning Commission time and time again that we do not want the Phillips 66 railway spur on the Nipomo Mesa. Hundreds of pleas from not only local residents, afraid of losing their health and home, but representatives from Los Angeles and other large cities, fire departments, etc., are on record requesting denial. On Sept. 22, another lengthy meeting had 75-plus public comments—first the Planning Commission went straight to making a list of problems and how to mitigate them. Evidentially 10 major mitigations cannot be solved. Next the meeting was postponed again. Is the Planning Commission trying to wear down these good people?
