What Is Prop C?
Prop C would amend Proposition A, which was approved by voters in 1992, in order to allow the City and County of San Francisco to issue up to $260.7 million in general obligation bonds, which would be subject to regular audits and oversight by citizens.
The funds would be used for:
- acquiring, improving, and rehabilitating at-risk multi-unit residential buildings
- converting such structures into permanent affordable housing
Who Supports Prop C?
Proposition C has the unanimous support of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors.
Supporters argue that San Francisco is currently sitting on “$261 million in unspent seismic safety bonds that could be used better elsewhere. Proposition C relabels the bond package and directs it toward housing, a prime civic sore spot.”
Who Opposes Prop C?
No official opposition was submitted in response to Proposition C.
