"Sustaining and Enhancing the Quality of Life in Foster City"

 

Sustainability BubbleFoster City has a history as a master planned community in which strategic
decisions in the areas of land use and budget and spending have allowed the community to thrive.  More recently, environmental initiatives have become strategic imperatives in the community, including community outreach through the City's Environmental Sustainability Task Force and within the City's own operations.  (Learn more about Foster City's green policies and practices.)

"Sustainable Foster City" is the next step in Foster City's on-going effort to ensure the long-term viability of the Foster City community and its way of life.  To be truly sustainable, a community must be economically sustainable, environmentally sustainable and ensure the social equity and
quality of life of its residents and business community.  A "Dashboard" of data relating to the City's health in these areas has been developed and can be viewed from the link in the side bar of this page.  The Sustainable Foster City plan has been developed to set the course for Foster City's on-going Sustainability efforts.

The plan, which was presented to the City Council on November 5, 2012 recommends seven priority objectives in three initiative areas:

1.  INVEST IN FOSTER CITY

  • Increase overall property values through sustainable development and redevelopment
  • Enhance the availability of quality and reliable infrastructure, utilities and natural resources to support economic growth in Foster City

2.  SHOP IN FOSTER CITY

  • Increase overall retail stability and sales in Foster City
  • Grow the economic base in the community for purposes of providing greater employment opportunities, tax revenues and wealth creation opportunities in key industrial and/or commercial areas
  • Provide a greater diversity and level of retail options in the greater context of availability within the region

3.  WE ARE FOSTER CITY

  • Increase public awareness of why Foster City is an ideal place to live, work and play
  • Increase civic and community engagement through collaborative networks and organizations

In order to accomplish the strategic objectives, the following five priority tasks have been identified for completion by June 30, 2013:

  1. Assessment of retail strengths and weaknesses
  2. Business promotion, support and advocacy
  3. Create a Foster City Identity/Quality of Life Campaign
  4. Investigate and implement a Clean Energy Initiative
  5. Create a Foster City Economic Development Dashboard
