There are state propositions (like Prop 7, Prop 10, Prop 8, etc) and there are county measures like the could-be Measure R that's about transportation funding. Then there are citywide propositions, which will be worked on today by City Council members in a Ballot Simplification Committee Meeting today (.pdf). What they're working on are two items to look out for on the November ballot, Propositions A and B, or the "Special Gang and Youth Violence Prevention, After-School and Job Training Programs Tax" and "Update of Low Rent Housing Authorization," respectively.
