The battle over development on San Francisco’s waterfront is heading back to the ballot. Proposition B would require that waterfront projects be approved by voters if they exceed zoned height limits. Supporters say the measure is needed to protect waterfront views and safeguard the character of the city. But critics contend that Prop. B would threaten the construction of affordable housing units and revenue for the Port of San Francisco. We debate the measure, which comes before the city’s voters on June 3.
