FOGG Open Letter – January 22, 2010

FOGG thought we would be reporting to you on the final Planning Department (and they said “final”) NE Embarcadero Community Workshop that was tentatively scheduled for the end of this month.  It was scheduled as a “final” report on their NE Embarcadero Study and their proposals for development.

However, we now learn that they have again tentatively rescheduled the Workshop for the end of February.

We wonder why the delay?  Could it be due to the sizeable number of concerned citizens and neighbors who have made it clear that they do not support the Planning Department proposal that would, without a doubt, end 40 years of providing open recreational space for our community and its city-wide supporters.

FOGG will stay alert and report any possible “deals” that may be made with government agencies that could affect the final outcome of the proposed 8 Washington Street development.

We want to report to you some really good and substantial news.

FOGG has created a Brochure – A Factual Perspective On The Proposed 8 Washington Street Development.  Much thanks to our committee of dedicated volunteers and Citric Creative Group, our graphics designer, for their tireless effort.  We are sincerely appreciative.

We are very passionate in our mission.  With this Brochure, FOGG demonstrates a positive and credible position to preserve the open recreational facility in its entirety that has been an integral part of the Planned Community known as the Golden Gateway for over 40 years.  We welcome you to read it.  You may view the Brochure on this web site by clicking on FOGG Brochure – 2010.

If you would like to have a bound copy to share with your family and friends, please let us know by responding to  A small donation ($25.00 or more) to defray the printing and mailing costs would be appreciated.  Please send your tax deductible donation by check to AGAPE/FOGG, mailed to Jim Eggert, Treasurer and CPA, 550 Davis Street #46, San Francisco, CA 94111.

As always, FOGG will continue to actively monitor and participate in the decision making process about preserving our open recreational space.  We know that you, our supporters, consider this open recreational space vital to your quality of life, and how important it is in keeping this community a vibrant and active neighborhood.
