How the November Housing Bond Differs From Last Year’s

By SF Public Press

The $600 million bond that’s up for a vote in November differs from the big-ticket housing bond that passed in 2018 by giving more leeway to developers to devise projects in keeping with city guidelines as well as by focusing on the western and southern areas of San Francisco as potential sites for affordable housing.

“So part of what I think this bond will be able to do will be to say, ‘Developers, bring us projects in the western neighborhoods, in the southern neighborhoods, where we haven't built before.’”

— Fernando Martí, co-director, Council of Community Housing Organizations
