Dear --name, The board of directors of the Eureka Valley Neighborhood Association has voted to endorse Proposition C. If approved by San Francisco voters on June 7, 2016, Proposition C will: 1. Increase the affordable housing requirement for private housing developers. 2. Require for the first time the creation of middle-income housing as a portion of inclusionary units. 3. Restore authority to adjust future affordable housing requirements to the Board of Supervisors and Mayor. Here are additional details for those interested in reading further: Proposition C increases the on-site affordable housing requirement for projects of 25 or more units: 1. Increases on-site affordable housing requirements from 12% to 25%. Prop C returns the on-site requirement to 15% affordable for low-income households, and adds a new 10% affordable to moderate/middle-income households. 2. Establishes the first-ever requirement for affordable housing for middle-income households. Prop C mandates that at least 10% of on-site units be affordable to moderate/middle-income households, allowing San Franciscans earning salaries in the range of public service workers, clerical workers, school teachers, and bus drivers, to find stable long-term housing in the City. 3. Encourages developers to opt for on-site mixed-income housing. For those developers who elect not to provide mixed-income affordable housing on-site, Prop C increases the amounts for an “in-lieu” fee and an off-site development alternative from 20 to 33 percent. Proposition C also amends the City Charter, restoring the ability of the Board of Supervisors and the Mayor to change affordable housing requirements by ordinance. This is an essential “good government” provision that lets the city match housing requirements with future economic conditions; determine need and household income levels by neighborhood; and ensure that the maximum number of affordable units are built. ................................................................
