San Francisco voters face 17 ballot measures for affordable housing

No one’s denying that there’s a problem

How do you know when California has a housing problem? Besides the low housing supply and rapidly rising home prices, the total of 17 ballot measures could be a give-away.

That’s right, San Francisco is looking at 17 different ballot measures this election for affordable housing, according to an article by Melody Gutierrez for the San Francisco Times.

However, this high number of ballot measures is not unexpected, according to Gloria Bruce, East Bay Housing Organizations executive director, the article states. Many organizations are seeking a solution to the problem.

From the article:

“We aren’t having to convince people there is a problem,” Bruce said. “That has opened a political window for measures that increase resources because we aren’t seeing opposition. That’s huge. People realize this is the time to invest and do what we need to do.”

One measure, for example, would allow the county to give up to $580 million in general obligation bonds to buy or renovate affordable housing or low- to moderate-income families, veterans, seniors and people with disabilities. The money would also be used for home-buyer programs for residents, according to the article. No one filed an opposing argument.
