JFK Drive closure proponents, tenant activists make bid for ballot

Tiffany and Melanie Miles from Advocates for a Safe Golden Gate Park, which is urging the closure of John F. Kennedy Drive on Saturdays to go with the current Sunday closure, brought boxes containing more than 18,000 signatures of

San Francisco voters to City Hall Monday, the deadline to qualify initiatives for the November ballot. In addition to the Golden Gate Park group, two other groups submitted petitions to qualify measures for the ballot. The Housing Rights Committee of San Francisco turned in more than

17,000 signatures for a ballot measure that would restrict the ability of property owners to pass through the costs of major building improvements to their tenants in the form of increased rents; and the San Francisco Tenants Union turned in more than 18,000 signatures for a measure that would limit the yearly number of conversions from rental units to condominiums. The Department of Elections must certify the signatures before the measures are officially placed on the ballot. - Independent Staff Report
