Signature gathering will begin this weekend in the campaign for a ballot measure on waterfront development heights in The City, setting the stage for the next battle over the 7.5 miles fronting San Francisco Bay.

On Thursday, City Attorney Dennis Herrera signed off on the title and summary of the Waterfront Development Height Increases initiative, giving backers the green light to begin collecting signatures.

It would take 9,702 signatures by Feb. 3 to place the initiative on the June ballot, but supporters could alternatively seek inclusion in the November election.

Under the measure, any development on Port of San Francisco property would have to go before the voters if it exceeds existing height limits, which generally range from 40 to 105 feet.
