The Planning Commission meets on Feb. 4 to 5 to hear public comment regarding the Phillips Rail Spur issue.

You must show up to show our opposition to these trains. The trains they want to bring through our city and our state carry toxic tar sands from Canada.

These trains create toxic air pollution, threaten water supplies and bring more carbon pollution. Our rail system was designed to bring people, not hazardous crude oil. The people of San Luis Obispo have the opportunity to step up and influence a decision that impacts the whole state.

This is our moment to shine. Let’s do it.

Beverly Cohen, San Luis Obispo
