On Tuesday, San Franciscans decided on a number of measures relating to the city’s housing crisis. They struck down Proposition F, a contentious measure that would restrict short-term housing rental services such as Airbnb, which raised more than $8 million to oppose the measure. Proposition F lost 55 percent to 45 percent. Another measure related to housing, Proposition I, which would establish a moratorium on market-rate housing development in the Mission District for at least 18 months, also lost. Meanwhile, Proposition A, a $310 million bond for affordable housing, passed. Proposition A, backed by Mayor Ed Lee, was approved with 73 percent of the vote. San Franciscans also passed Proposition D to increase waterfront height limits and allowing the San Francisco Giants to develop property next to AT&T Park.
