ULI SF: Development, Voter Elections, and the Future of the San Francisco Waterfront
April 17, 2014 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm PDT
San Francisco election officials recently certified a ballot measure to limit heights along the San Francisco Waterfront. The proposed “Waterfront Height Limit Right to Vote Act” will require voter approval on the June 3, 2014 ballot for any new building that exceeds as-of-right height limits, which inextricably links future entitlement to voter elections. Proponents such as the Sierra Club believe the initiative is necessary to preserve public resources that belong to all San Franciscans. Opponents maintain that the measure violates both state and local law and is directed at limiting any new development along the waterfront including the Warriors Arena, SWL 337 and Pier 70.
This panel presents the opportunity to hear from both sides of the aisle and the impact on future development in San Francisco. The matter seems bound for that unique shade of San Francisco gray. Do not wait until the June 3, 2014 election to understand the issues. Join ULI for an open and collegial discussion among panelist representing both sides of this extremely important issue that will shape development on San Francisco’s waterfront for years to come.
