Billboard debate scheduled for Wednesday

Creating a two-block “sign district” along Market Street is perhaps the most controversial ballot initiative going before San Francisco voters this November.

On Wednesday, supporters and opponents of Proposition D will debate the measure at The SoMa Leadership Council.

Supporters of the measure say it will combat blight and renew tourism by creating a safe, well-lit corridor for pedestrians between mid-Market and the Civic Center. Opponents fear the extreme presence of billboards could destroy prospects for reviving all of Market Street. 

The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. at The Arc of San Francisco, 180 11th St., second floor.
