GBD LAUNCHES JUMPSTART PROGRAM

Three of the District's seven green spaces that will be getting 'Jumpstart' services.

Three of the District's seven green spaces that will be getting 'Jumpstart' services.

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.
