Forming a GBD is a robust and democratic public campaign that includes extensive community engagement.
The GBD formation initiative is currently in the Plan Development Phase. Upcoming in 2018 will be a district-wide petition to initiate a district-only special ballot election, both of which require votes of the property owners within the proposed district. See Formation Process for more details.
From September through December 2017 biweekly public meetings enabled the community to weigh in on what the district should provide, how it should be governed & other important questions. Through this transparent and grassroots process, meeting participants co-created the GBD's Management Plan.
