Prop. A would fund hospital, ambulance and homeless shelter seismic upgrades
San Francisco Examiner

San Francisco is counting on voters to approve a $350 million bond this June to fund seismic upgrades to health, fire and homeless facilities as part of the continued investment outlined in The City’s long-term capital plan.

Proposition A, the Public Health and Safety Bond, was placed on the ballot by the Board of Supervisors and Mayor Ed Lee. Passage of the bond would require two-thirds approval.

The largest portion of the bond, $222 million, will continue the efforts to seismically upgrade the Department of Public Health’s campus around the soon-to-open new San Francisco General Hospital.
