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

"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
2. SHOP IN FOSTER CITY
3. WE ARE FOSTER CITY
In order to accomplish the strategic objectives, the following five priority tasks have been identified for completion by June 30, 2013:
