Debate on propositions K, L to be held at SFSU on Thursday

Competing measures aim to shape future of office development in San Francisco


A debate on San Francisco propositions K and L, two competing measures on this November's ballot, will be held Thursday at San Francisco State University. The hotly contested initiatives address the future of office growth in San Francisco.

Proposition K is sponsored by Mayor Willie Brown. The measure includes a two-year moratorium on large office developments in the Mission and Potrero Hill neighborhoods and exempts state and local government offices, non-profit organizations and various areas of the city from the annual growth cap of 950,000 square feet. It also establishes a dot-com zone in parts of the South of Market district.

Proposition L, sponsored by artists and activists who gathered 30,000 signatures to put the measure on the ballot, calls for stricter rules regulating office growth. The measure includes permanent bans on new development in parts of the Mission and South of Market districts; an indefinite moratorium on new development in Potrero Hill, Bayview-Hunters Point and other parts of South of Market; and a permanent ban on live-work loft construction.

The debate is co-sponsored by the San Francisco Urban Institute, San Francisco Policy Center and the Associated Students of SFSU. For details, contact Susan Alunan of the San Francisco Urban Institute at (415) 338-6419.
