Proposition D

By Jordan Lalata

Sponsored and funded by the San Francisco Giants, a yes vote on this measure will convert Lot A, a surface parking lot south of AT&T Park, into something more dramatic and vibrant. The Mission Rock project achieves to create 40 percent affordable housing to low and middle-income individuals and families with approximately 1,500 new rental homes. The project will also include eight acres of parks and open space for family-oriented and recreational activities, and an expansion of Anchor Brewing, the city’s very own brewery, to Pier 48. This would result into more than 13,500 construction jobs, 11,000 permanent jobs and produce over $1 billion in revenue to go toward city services. Those opposed of this measure include the San Francisco Green Party, San Francisco Tomorrow and the Sierra Club San Francisco Bay.
