Housing Moratorium in Mission?

Voters will be asked in the November election whether to put the brakes on market-rate housing construction in the Mission District if neighborhood activists have their way. Edwin Lindo of the San Francisco Latino Democratic Club said this week that a coalition of affordable housing and progressive groups soon will submit a potential ballot measure to the city attorney that would delay market-rate housing projects in the Mission for up to 18 months. They would then attempt to collect the approximately 9,400 signatures needed to qualify the measure for the ballot, reports the San Francisco Business Times. [SFBT]
