San Francisco Bayview Jobs and Housing, Proposition G (June 2008)
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.
- These final, certified, election results are from the San Francisco elections office.
