Local Land Use Votes Mixed Results in SF, SD and the IE
Several initiatives were on the ballot Tuesday affecting CRE in three local regions of California, including measures on affordable housing and retail vacancy in San Francisco, land use planning in San Diego, and future transit-oriented development in the Inland Empire. Here’s how it played out:
– Measure D, the retail storefront vacancy tax, has passed with a 2/3’s majority.
– Measure E, the cap on office development tied to affordable housing, is passing.
– Measure A, requiring county-wide vote of approval of future general plan variances granted to developers, has failed.
– Measure B, seeking to approve Newland Sierra entitlements, has failed to pass.
Redlands (Inland Empire)
– Measure G, a decision on whether to allow increased density for transit oriented developments near future rail stops for San Bernardino County’s ARROW commuter rail line, has been defeated by a wide margin.
