With 100 percent of San Francisco’s precincts reporting but provisional and hand-delivered mail-in ballots yet to be counted, Proposition G, the so-called “anti-speculation tax,” would appear to have failed with 54% voting against the measure while the redevelopment plans and increased height limits for Pier 70 are a lock (72% YES).
The early results for the long-ago approved Beach Chalet Athletic Fields renovation are holding as well, with 55% supporting the measure to allow fake turf and lights to be installed.
EARLY RESULTS: Based on the results of 79,009 mail-in ballots returned, a third of the 244,663 which were issued, San Francisco Ballot Measure G is failing with 59% of the mail-in ballots marked NO versus 41% YES.
San Francisco Ballot Measure F which would allow the building height limit for Pier 70 to be increased from 40 feet to 90 feet and clear the way for the approved redevelopment of the 28-acre site to proceed is passing with 71% of the mail-in ballots marked YES versus 29% NO.
The long-ago approved renovation of the Beach Chalet Athletic Fields in Golden Gate Park appears to on-track to be upheld, with Proposition H which would block the renovation failing (54% NO versus 46% YES) and Proposition I which would clear the way for the renovation and fake turf passing with 58% of the ballots marked YES and 42% NO.
The mail-in ballot counts for Measure K (Affirming San Francisco’s Affordable Housing Goals): 62% YES / 38% NO; and Measure L (Changing San Francisco’s Parking and Transportation Priorities): 41% YES / 59% NO.
