sfgate.com

San Francisco voters will weigh in on aggressive housing development goals and a minimum wage hike that would bring the city's base pay to $15 an hour by 2018, the highest in the nation, after the Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to place both measures on the November ballot. The board also voted unanimously to place a policy statement on the fall ballot that would set specific housing development goals for the city, including Lee's aggressive plan to build or rehabilitate 30,000 housing units by 2020. Kim, backed by affordable housing advocates and developers, had initially planned to put a controversial measure on the ballot that would have forced market rate developers to submit to a time-consuming review process anytime the amount of affordable housing in the city's development pipeline slipped below 30 percent. The resolution by Supervisor David Campos stated that the board would consider a $3.4 million supplemental appropriation, or a 0.75 percent increase for nonprofit workers, if city revenue from the fiscal year that just ended is above expectations in the coming months. Kathrin Moore, an architect and expert in urban design, was reappointed for a third term to the Planning Commission; Dennis Richards, a longtime Castro District and Duboce Triangle community activist, was named to the Planning Commission; and Bobbie Wilson, an intellectual property attorney, was appointed to the Board of Appeals.
