A GBD is a tool for enhancing the "public realm" - 
any publicly-owned street, sidewalk, park, plaza,
open space or amenity

In the Inner Sunset, a GBD could support a variety of enhanced maintenance services, such as cleaning and tree care along heavily used streets. It could also support a number of streetscape improvement projects, for instance:

Sidewalk Greening Trees, planters, parklets and gardens along sidewalks would add aesthetic and ecological value to public spaces

This list is meant to be illustrative of the types of projects a GBD might pursue, rather than comprehensive. If established, a GBD would conduct thorough community outreach before proceeding with any project.
