SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the SC Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
CHRIS PITCHFORD, San Clemente
What great news for all of us who live in, visit and love San Clemente.
Sane minds prevailed, came together and decided a non-toll extension of the 241 Toll Road would suffice to ease traffic by connecting to La Pata and having traffic use Camino De Los Mares, Vista Hermosa and Avenida Pico to access Interstate 5.
Those of us wanting nothing to do with a toll road bisecting our town, while bringing construction aftermath in its wake, have been vindicated. Now preservation of wildlife, quality of life and the beauty that is San Clemente are at hand.
Whether it’s the mild sea breezes flowing throughout our town or the parade of rolling hills emptying to the sea, all of a sudden, we have a brighter future in store for life in San Clemente.
