Save Tesla—Tell Gov. Newsom to sign AB 1086
Last week, the Legislature approved AB 1086 . AB 1086 would allow the State Parks Department to sell the Tesla area if it finds that it would be in the public interest. The Tesla area is a 3,100 acre expanse of open land in the hills southeast of Livermore which is home to protected species, historical mining communities, and Native American sites. It is next to Carnegie Park, an off-highway motor vehicle recreation area. The current plan is to expand Carnegie Park and to develop Tesla as an off-road motorized vehicle park.
FOV has been working with Friends of Tesla Park to protect the Tesla area for several years. The passage of AB 1086 is a huge step forward but without the Governor’s signature, the legislation will die.
Please help NOW by contacting the Governor and telling him to sign AB 1086. There are only a few weeks left for him to enact this law. He needs to know this bill has broad public support.
