Status quo rules the day: the signy district of Mid-Market yore will remain just that, as voters yesterday spiked Prop D by a sizeable 8.18 percent margin. Fifty-four percent voted no on the measure to allow signage on buildings between 5th and 7th. "We always thought it would be very close," said Warfield owner and Prop D booster David Addington, who'll now have to make do with no signage in his quest to remake the two slummy blocks. Meanwhile, the next measure down the alphabet, which proposed banning an increase in ads on street furniture (like Muni bus shelters) and city-owned buildings, passed by a solid 57 percent.
