Dogpatch & Northwest Potrero Hill Green Benefit District
Newsletter - February 2016
Dear Member of the Dogpatch and Northwest Potrero Hill community,

If you live in, work in, or visit Dogpatch and Northwest Potrero Hill neighborhoods, you will soon benefit from the work of the new Dogpatch & Northwest Potrero Hill Green Benefit District (GBD) – the first in the country!
 
After three long years of diligent work by community leaders and the City and County of San Francisco, last November residents and property owners in Dogpatch and Northwest Potrero Hill elected thirteen people to serve on the first GBD Board of Directors.

We are pleased to report: 
  1. We are recruiting an Executive Director for the GBD. We will be posting the job on our website in the next days; in the meantime please write us for more information.
  2. We are accepting applications for GBD maintenance funding for existing green spaces within the District boundaries. Download the funding guidelines and application form here.
  3. Seven existing green spaces in the District, shown here, will start receiving ‘Jumpstart’ services in March. Details on activities, costs and services providers are here.
 
Benches Garden & Park
Minnesota Grove
I.M. Scott Sidewalk Gardens
Potrero Gateway Loop
Woods Yard Park
Fallen Bridges Mini-Park
Progress Park
In the next month, we will finalize our plans and solicit bids from service providers, including cleaning and maintenance, sidewalk tree pruning, and landscaping. We will soon announce a funding round for new capital project proposals for the District.
 
We invite you to visit the website to stay updated on our plans, for information and reports about our meetings, and to learn about our efforts to improve the quality of life in the Dogpatch and Northwest Potrero Hill neighborhoods.
 
Suggestions, comments, ideas and questions are very welcome! Please let us know.
 
Regards from your GBD Board of Directors:
Jean Bogiages, Robert Broucaret, Janet Carpinelli, Michele Davis, Susan Eslick, Jesse Herzog, Lisa Jacobs, Adam Mendelson, James Naylor, Phillip Pierce, Kat Sawyer, Alison Sullivan, and Michael Yarne
