Rather than go through the remainder of the rights, I'm going to leave it that Proposition 4 creates more problems than it solves. It expresses some wonderful ideals and most of it is better suited as guiding principles as opposed to being codified in the city charter.
Section 74.5 wouldn't be necessary if we took a clue from Mark Fenton and considered growth management, ped/bike/auto traffic, store locations, landscaping and building design, etc., as a whole in order to make neighborhoods attractive as well as profitable.
But I'm not a lawyer nor a city resident.
