Signatures in support of three proposed ballot measures have been submitted to San Francisco’s Department of Elections for verification.

Assuming at least 9,702 valid signatures per measure, the proposed ordinances which would block the renovation of the Beach Chalet Athletic Fields in Golden Gate Park and approve the up-zoning of Pier 70 for redevelopment will qualify for the November ballot.  The third measure would establish a number of car-friendly transportation priorities for San Francisco, albeit by way of a non-binding declaration of policy.

A total of <strike>ten</strike> nine local ballot measures appear to be headed for the November ballot, including  the mayor’s “Children’s Playgrounds, Walking Trails and Athletic Fields Act,” a counter measure which would allow the conversion of the Beach Chalet’s four grass fields to synthetic turf and lighting for evening use to proceed even if the Athletic Fields measure above is passed, as long as the mayor’s measure receives more votes.

  1. All the more reason to get an initiative on something like the June ballot where one does not compete with numerous other choices.

  2. Will that Eric Mar nonsense about taxing re sales of apartment bldgs up to 24% also get on the ballot? I can’t imagine it won’t be challenged muy pronto- taxation without representation. Hello?

  3. Children’s Playgrounds, Walking Trails and Athletic Fields Act — what a bogus laugher. How about: Force kids to play on toxic green ground up tires and fake butterflies Act?

    1. Obviously, you have no kids that play soccer on that gopher-infested, poorly drained, ankle breaker, muddy swamp they currently call a soccer field…

    2. you’re the laugher, except it isn’t funny. at all. so many kids and adults have gotten injured from that unsustainable sandy plane where they’ve artificially forced grass to “kind of” exist, albeit in a costly manner

  4. You forgot to mention the “Restore Transportation Balance” initiative, which will make it policy to build additional parking structures in all SF’s neighborhoods.

    I think one would look nice right next to Fredrikson’s Hardware in Cow Hollow, and another adjacent to Magnolia Brewery in The Haight…where would you like to see such a neighborhood-demolishing structure rise in _your_ neighborhood?
