T. Jack Foster’s dream of a perfect city began its translation into steel and wood, concrete and glass in 1961 and presented a daring concept of an all-inclusive, self-supporting urban community. Today Foster City pays homage to that original vision, and proudly offers the premier urban suburban experience on the peninsula. It works to protect, maintain and grow its community through thoughtfully conceived master planning and imagination, balancing tradition with innovation. Foster City is designed as a balanced community, one where people can not only live and play in an ideal setting, but can also find gainful employment in leading edge companies in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) in the heart of San Mateo County and Silicon Valley.
In this issue you will get a glimpse into our community style, trends in industry, workplace spotlights and our future vision which make Foster City what it is today and what it will be tomorrow. We hope the living!LOCAL City Guide offers you a different perspective, a different lens, through which to view and value our community.
