Proposition A (Budget Process) – SUPPORT
Proposition A will help the San Francisco government better manage its finances by requiring the creation of a two-year budget, a five-year financial plan and the alignment of future City employee union contracts. Proposition A is a good first step to reforming local government by mandating that prudent financial policies and practices are put into place that are more in-line with practices long ago adopted by the private sector. BOMA SF-PAC supports Proposition A and urges all San Francisco voters to do so as well. You can read our blog post on this proposition, here. Click here to review charter amendment.

Proposition D (Mid-Market Special Sign District) – SUPPORT
Proposition D, entitled the "Mid-Market Arts Revitalization and Tourism Special Sign District", will apply to only two blocks, between 5th and 7th Streets on Market Street. It will create an exception to Proposition G, the 2002 citywide measure that banned all new signs in San Francisco. Specifically the ordinance will:
- Create a special sign district that will manage the number and size of the signs that will be allowed along Market St. between 5th and 7th Streets, and is limited to only 52 buildings;
- Take a portion (20% for buildings devoting ground floor space to local arts activities or displays and 40% for those buildings who don't) to fund local artists and arts education for kids in the Tenderloin;
- Use part of the money from advertising revenues to assist in cleaning sidewalks and upgrading the two block area to make it safer;
- Use part of the funds to refurbish and maintain historic buildings and theaters and their marquees to restore the area as the city's Theater District. It would also fund establishing a theater ticket booth at Halladie Plaza.
