In a very rare move, the CPUC has scheduled a special public participation hearing in Carlsbad this Thursday, September 4. If you care about keeping your 760 area code, you and your friends need to be there:
CPUC Public Hearing:
September 4, 2008
Carlsbad City Hall Council Chambers
1200 Carlsbad Village Drive
Carlsbad, CA 92008
4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
If you live or conduct business in N. San Diego County this is important!
The Public Utilities Commission has authorized a split-up of the 760 area code. This change will require businesses and everyone living in North San Diego County to use a different area code and incur substantial cost in reprinting forms, changing software, etc. We recently learned of a group, www.keep760.org , that is working to stop this change, as there is an option to overlay the area with a different code for new customers only.
The website, www.keep760.org , includes an easy-to-use email message for you to notify our elected officials and members of the commission that you do not want the area code to change.
