WHY FOSTER CITY WANTS SCHOOL UNIFICATION (1990’s)

WHY FOSTER CITY WANTS SCHOOL UNIFICATION (1990’s)

Foster City has always had a healthy continuing discussion about the desire for a local High School. This document found in our archives is from the 1990’s group the “Citizens Allied for a Multipurpose Unified School” and lays out some of the arguments 30 years ago for a High School.

Foster City Home Owners’ Landscape Planting and Maintenance Guide (1960’s ?)

Foster City Home Owners’ Landscape Planting and Maintenance Guide (1960’s ?)

Happy to share with the community another gem of landscaping Foster City. This item was found in a garage and we believe it to be original. It is the Foster City Home Owners’ Landscape Planting and Maintenance Guide and it goes through some of the original planting guidelines in Foster City. The documents are not dated but due to the thick high quality paper, typeface and oxidation on the pages we suspect his is from the 1960’s.

Greetings from the Island!

Greetings from the Island!

From our archives we present this postcard that went out to Foster City residents to promote San Mateo’s Fashion Island Mall. What makes this photo unique are some of the smaller details seen in the aerial photo. Metro Tower was completed in 1986 so this photo had to be the early to mid 1980’s.
