YES on Prop B: Earthquake Safety & Emergency Response Bond (aka Let’s Not Die)

Prop B authorizes a bond of $628,500,000 to fund systems and facilities that would be useful in response to earthquakes, like 911 emergency response, police, and fire fighters. The bond is paid for by an annual fee of $15 for every $100,000 of assessed value for 30 years. The bond replaces an existing bond that phases out, so property taxes do not change.

YES on Prop D: Vacancy Tax for Commercial Spaces

Prop D places a tax on vacant storefronts. If the owner or tenant of a ground floor commercial space keeps it vacant for more than 6 months out of a year, they would pay a tax per foot of street frontage, unless they’ve applied for or obtained a building permit. The tax is intended to discourage vacancies, not raise funds, but any money raised would go to a fund for small business assistance.

NO on Proposition E: Limits on Office Development

This Prop is cynical and misleading. Voting for it will make the problem it purports to solve worse in the short term. The solution to a housing shortage is more housing.
