A San Francisco Bayview Jobs and Housing, Proposition G ballot question was on the June 3, 2008 ballot in San Francisco, California, where it was easily approved.[1]

Proposition G allowed the Lennar Corporation to develop an 800-acre parcel in Bay View-Hunter's Point with shops and high-rise office and residential space, and clean up toxins from the Naval Shipyards.

Proposition G also:

  • Allowed 33% of the residences to go to affordable housing for families of differing income groups.
  • Included some accommodations for those in the lowest-income bracket.

Supporters of Proposition G said that if it didn't pass, the 49ers would never have had another chance to build a stadium in San Francisco.

Proposition G competed with Proposition F, on the same ballot. Proposition F was defeated by a wide margin.
