The city is considering a ban similar to those in San Francisco and several other Bay Area cities.

The Foster City proposal will be introduced at next Monday's city council meeting.

City officials say any ban on plastic bags would be phased in over a few years so that residents, businesses and developers would not have the financial burden all at once during this economic recession.
