The latest news and information about the District and Preserves.
The Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District is currently accepting applications from qualified individuals interested in serving on the Measure AA Bond Oversight Committee. The Oversight Committee is essential to implementing Measure AA and will consist of seven at-large members who reside within the District. The Committee is expected to convene at least once a year and take the time required to thoroughly review annual Measure AA expenditures and Midpen’s Annual Audit and Accountability report. Each year, the Committee’s findings will be presented to the Board at a public meeting and will be posted on the District’s website. Applications are due on Friday, December 11 at 5:00 p.m.
The Bay Area Open Space Council recently produced Here and Now, a short film that tells the story of four innovative partnerships between Native Americans and land conservation organizations. Midpen provided partial funding for this project, and our work with the Amah Mutsun at Mt. Umunhum is featured in the film.
On August 26, 2015, the Board of Directors approved 7 - 0 the Final Design Development Options for the Mount Umunhum Summit Project, and directed District staff to look for areas for additional shade structures at the summit. These design development options DO NOT include recommendations for the Radar Tower. This decision allows staff to proceed with final design development and production of construction documents, which will form the basis for permit submittals and a Request for Bids package. Full details are available on the Mount Umunhum Summit Project page.
