FOGG supports the efforts of the Port to improve their revenue return on investment, and understands the need for building a sound economic model. We can, therefore, support your proposed legislation with amendments to protect and revitalize the historic sites that are controlled by the Port.

Hello FOGG Supporters,

It has been almost four years since FOGG began its effort to save the Golden Gateway Tennis & Swim Club from being demolished and turned in condominiums. We have been successful so far, but the fight continues.

During the past four years, we have seen our list of supporters grow from a handful of concerned people to over 1,300.
