San Francisco Skyscrapers in Jeopardy

Forces are gathering in the Bay Area to slow down developments. Why? Well, some people say that a proposed San Francisco ballot initiative that would place extensive limits on buildings that cast shadows on parks is in reality an effort to stop developments altogether. This can either be bad news or good news, depending on how you feel about these developments. It could very well abolish all intended skyscrapers that had been proposed for the downtown area. Mayor Gavin Newsom is completely against this new initiative, though, according to reports. “What it effectively does is pretty much prevent most new high-rises,” said the city’s planning director. The president of the board of supervisors that is adamantly pushing this initiative says that his constituents have begged him to “protect our sunlight.”
