District 6 Board of Supervisors Chris Daly voted No on certain aspects of HOPE SF according to meeting minutes from the Board of Supervisors during the month of October, 2010. Without Daly’s approval, parts of the HOPE SF vote finally passed 9 to 1.
The vote was for parts of the process of giving the HOPE SF Development Project $38 million. HOPE SF will be geared toward improving housing development projects throughout the city and will bring mixed income real estate to middle class families in Hayes Valley and nearby neighborhoods. The San Francisco Housing Authority Website states, Hayes Valley will receive $42.5 million in funding by phase 6 of the HOPE SF Planning Phase.
Daly is leaving D6 in a matter of days but has served the district for almost ten years. The debate over his district by upcoming candidates is hot, to say the least. According to the SF Bay Guardian online, “as he prepares to leave office, Daly is trying to highlight the role his District 6 constituents have played in pushing progressive reforms.”
