FOGG Open Letter – January 14, 2019

Hello Again – and Good Bye!!

Hello FOGG Supporters!

Yes, it has been a while since we have talked to you.

And, that is a good thing.

Thankfully, we are unaware of any development plans to build on the Bay Club Gateway site, formally known as the Golden Gateway Tennis and Swim Club.

We have not been able to say that for some time, and that is wonderful.

Some of our new supporters may not be aware of what has happened since FOGG began in July of 2003.

Our Mission has always been to preserve the Golden Gateway Tennis and Swim Club as it is.

Since our founding in 2003, with your support and the support of countless others we have fought off two developers.

There is still one lawsuit ongoing between Golden Gateway Center and San Francisco Waterfront Partners II.  This lawsuit is scheduled to go to trial on January 14, 2019, in San Francisco Superior Court.

Case Number is CGC15548437 should you want to read about it.  SF Superior Court is at this link:

SF Superior Case CGC15548437

This is from the failed effort by SFWPII for the 8 Washington high rise luxury condominium development which was defeated by the voters of San Francisco in the November 5, 2013 election.  Over 60% of the San Francisco voters voted against this project.

Members of our FOGG Executive Committee have decided that we will now retire FOGG, as there is no imminent threat.

If any of our supporters know otherwise, please let us know.  We will look into it.

So, that is it.

The FOGG website will remain online as a memorial to the many efforts to preserve the Club.

We want to thank all our generous supporters who donated to the Kids Camp last year.  Many of you made additional gifts in memory of Lee Radner, our FOGG Chair, who passed away in May.  He would be so pleased that we sponsored 43 campers in 2018.  Thank you so much!

Good bye, and thank you all for your support!
