Send Letter to San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors
During the week of March 13-17, the San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors could decide whether to approve or reject the Phillips 66 project that would send oil trains several times a week through our communities. We all need to send a strong message to these decision makers that toxic, dangerous oil trains have NO place in our communities, near our homes, parks, schools, environmentally sensitive habitat and precious water resources. With your help, we can stop this project from receiving approval.
Sign a letter... and we will deliver it for you.
NOTE: For your letter to be considered official by SLO County Board of Supervisors, your full name and address are required. Please be assured that your address will only be used for the letter and will not be shared with any third parties.
Please enter address in the format shown above the address space.

Dear San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors:
I respectfully urge you to deny the proposed Phillips 66 Company Rail Spur Extension Project. My city of San Jose, with over 1 million residents, includes approximately 200,000 living within the Blast Zone of the major rail lines through our city. Approval of this project would bring trains of 80 crude oil tankcars 3 days per week through urban Union Pacific Railroad high hazard routes in the heart of our city.
A derailment and oil spill along these routes presents an enormous risk to our residents and to property. Venting from the oil cars is a health hazard. And the ever present psychological impact on children, families, and seniors of oil trains through our city is nothing I wish to endure. Our safety cannot be guaranteed and I urge you to deny the proposal.
