A new mayoral-supervisor disagreement will result in City Hall throwing two competing affordable housing measures on the ballot. One is Supervisor Jane Kim’s plan to increase the minimum percentage of below-market-rate units in new residential developments. The other measure, from Mayor Ed Lee’s office, would offer more flexibility in its implementation. Both would give the Board of Supervisors the ability to dictate the amount of affordable housing a development needed to include.
Unless the differing details of the measures are hashed out behind closed doors — a possibility, insiders say — voters will decide in June.
