Attend public hearings of the San Benito County Planning Commission and the Board of Supervisors to provide public comment on the rezoning process.​

  • Supervisors will vote (sometime in November of 2019) on whether to put our Referendum on the ballot. (Their meetings begin at 9:00 AM and is located at 481 Fourth St. in Hollister.)

Attend Aromas Water District meetings and ask the directors to consider the impact of commercial development on our local aquifers.

  • The Rocks Ranch and Livestock 101 nodes will most likely use water from the Aromas Water District.


Join the all-volunteer PORC team and help protect our communities from the negative impacts of commercial development in our rural area.


Send email to: to inquire about future PORC meetings.

We host events like the Protest Rallies at the San Juan Road overpass which spans Hwy 101.

We are hosting many other events for the Referendum.


Sign the Referendum Petition to repeal the San Benito County Supervisors' decision to rezone the 4 Hwy 101 "nodes", and to put the decision on the ballot. Let the voters decide!
