Across the San Francisco Bay in 1958 Union City was ready to incorporate, the United States Flag still had only 48 stars, developer T. Foster is coming out of a brief retirement from Pebble Beach, and took a $200,000 option to purchase Brewer’s Island which is an improbable undertaking to establish a new community that would be called Foster City, California with a San Francisco Bay Area business magnate by the name of Richard Grant.
These days, Foster City is a flourishing actuality that has a population of about 30,000 residents with a daytime population of employees that is almost equal with the evening population of people. This community has an impressive population of award-winning homes, lagoons, and trees. Amidst this prosperity and beauty, it is challenging to vision the barren, raw land of Brewer's Island with which Mt. Grant and Mr. Foster started their development.
Foster City is a well-designed community. Planned communities are totally conceived from their onset, with a well-established development plan, rather than being haphazardly developed in phases over a set period of time. Increased use of well-established communities was an extension of post-WWII Great Britain at a time when municipal destruction that resulted from destruction incurred during the war left Britons facing the formidable task of rebuilding their communities. At that time, the choice was made to rebuild according to a plan, rather than as the cities that had been originally developed and built.
The attainment of this modern-day community idea resulted in increased acceptance in the U.S. The initial two planned communities were Columbia, Maryland, and Reston, Virginia. Irvine, California soon followed Foster City. By 1973 there were over 50 planned cities in the United States and others around the world.
Usually, planned communities are established around a predetermined population level threshold. This population level threshold acts as the foundation for the determination with regard to the number of industries, shops, and homes to be constructed on the property and permits coordinated development of these fundamentals. The nature of planned population growth allows neighborhoods to be established intact and decisively evades the commercial thorough streets that normally divides neighborhoods in other communities. These neighborhoods are usually kept isolated from commercial developments. This results in a higher quality of life that is usually achieved in unplanned communities.
In addition, a planned community is frequently more appealing, and also follow a well-developed architectural plan that will result in a more methodical development of neighborhoods that will age better in the long run, and property that will continue to command high value. The architectural perspective somewhat controls the open market.
The scope of the engineering concept that created the land that Foster City is located on was quite histrionic. Some 2.5 million yards of material were unearthed to create an impoundment basin, better known as the lagoon. The lagoon contains some 425 gallons of water and is has some 218 surface acres. Four traffic bridges span the lagoon, and there are some 16.5 miles of drainage channels.
From the San Francisco Bay, some 71 million gallons of water each day is delivered by three automatic gates. During the rainy season, which is between November and February, four 66-inch diameter pipes, two of which are linked to two huge 700 hp diesel motors, can eject an incredible maximum of some 250,000 gallons of water to the San Francisco Bay, from the lagoon each minute.
The lagoon in Foster City was designed to withstand a storm of such severity that it has only a 1% probability of occurring in any period of 100 years. This system works quite well. In 1982, the devastating storms, which were very close to a frequency of some 100-years, Foster City didn’t experience any flooding, while the adjacent communities in San Mateo County experienced very severe drainage problems. From the time the lagoon was established until the current day, Foster City hasn’t had any draining problems resulting from flooding.
The Estero Municipal Improvement District was established in 1960 and became a self-governing entity that was complete with a Board of Directors. The initial three members of the Board were elected on the foundation one vote for every dollar of assessed valuation of property located within the District. Said another way, the more property that was owned, the greater the voting power, which subsequently provided Foster City with total control in running the district. This type arrangement was required since at that time, Foster City didn’t have any residents.
The District gave the developers a free hand in selling bonds in order to fund the infrastructure necessary for the development of Foster City. These bonds were to be repaid back by means of the levying of assessments on land that was founded upon future development. Article 10.5 of the Estero Municipal Improvement Act, reflects that the District might be subdivided into zones in accordance with the benefits received, which permitted the revenues to be imposed and collected upon the taxable land within each zone in accordance with the percentage of the amount that is to be raised each year in the zone by the imposition and collection of the tax.
