State Lands Commission Lawsuit – 7th Update – Trial Date Changed

FOGG wants to update you on a recent development on this ongoing lawsuit.

The lawsuit filed by the State Lands Commission (SLC) vs. the City of San Francisco has now been delayed from September 11, 2017.

It has tentatively been scheduled for January 10. 2018.

You may recall that Proposition B, passed by the San Francisco voters in June, 2014 requires voter approval before a developer can exceed the present height limits on San Francisco Port waterfront properties.

The decision to change the date of the trial occurred because an expert witness for the SLC was a party “to attorney-client communications concerning Proposition B during the time he worked for the Port of San Francisco.”

You may read the entire Court statement at the Page link on this website. 

FOGG will continue to monitor this lawsuit, and keep you advised.

Summer Kids Camps Scholarship Program – 2017 – Update 7

This year’s Summer Kids Camps Scholarship Program will end in just a few days.

FOGG wants to thank once again our supporters of the Scholarship program, now ending its 7th successful year.

With the help of these FOGG supporters, corporations and of course the Bay Club management, we sent another 50 plus youngsters from low income housing areas to a summer of fun and learning.

FOGG particularly wishes to express its sincere appreciation to the Kids Camps staff, its counselors and volunteers for their many hours of love and care for these young girls and boys.

Please see the photo Page link on this website showing some of the activities the kids participated in at Kids Camp.  We thank Pauline Chan of the Chinatown Community Development Center (CCDC) for providing them. 

FOGG looks forward to the 8th year of the Kids Camps Scholarship Program, as we know you will be there once again for the kids.
