S.F. parking initiative headed for November ballot

More than enough signatures to put the so-called Parking For Neighborhoods initiative on the November ballot were submitted Monday to the City’s Elections Department.

The initiative, which would permit the creation of more parking spaces citywide, needed signatures from at least 10,396 registered San Francisco voters to make it onto the ballot.

More than 18,000 voter signatures were collected.

The initiative is backed by business advocates who say there are not enough spots to park cars. The proposal includes allowing developers to build at leastthree parking spots for every four units in the downtown area, whereas now they are allowed to only build one parking spot for every four units.
