GBD’s first main job is to take care of our delightful existing parks and public spaces – nearly all of which were envisioned, built and/or revamped by our neighbors and friends.
The GBD Management Plan calls for a ‘jumpstart’ agenda: to see which spaces need attention right now.
So on December 31, 2015 the services committee toured the District, and made recommendations to the Board -- which had its own tour on January 10th.
Seven spaces are included the jumpstart: Progress Park, Minnesota Grove, IM Scott sidewalk greening and Woods Yard park in the Dogpatch, and Fallen Bridge mini-park, Benches Garden, and the ‘Potrero Loop’ in Northwest Potrero.
Now we are busy planning for long-term maintenance and improvement contracts for services to all the green spaces included in the Management Plan, as well as district-wide services. If you have any ideas, thoughts or suggestions, please let us know!
And if you know of a green space in the city which is NOT already included in the GBD Management Plan, we are accepting applications for GBD maintenance funding.
