Proposition Q: San Francisco Prohibiting Tents on Public Sidewalks
Shall the City prohibit the placement of tents on public sidewalks without a City permit and allow the City to remove unauthorized tents if the City provides 24-hour advance notice, offers shelter for all tent residents and stores the residents’ personal property for up to 90 days?
A “Yes” vote means:
A yes vote is a vote in favor of prohibiting the use of tents on public sidewalks and requiring the city to offer temporary shelter before removing tents.
A “No” vote means:
A no vote is a vote against this proposition to prohibit tents on public sidewalks, thereby leaving the city’s laws against obstructing public sidewalks and sitting or lying down on sidewalks in place without adding a specific provision against tents.
