The District’s primary revenue source is a share of the annual total property tax collected within the District. In fiscal year 2015-2016, this amounted to $44.98 million in tax revenue. Other revenue sources may include federal and state grants, interest and rental income, donations, land gifts, and note issues. This year’s District tax revenue growth and other data will not be comparable to prior years as Midpen adjusted its fiscal year from April 1 – March 31, to July 1 – June 30, which added an additional three months to this budget cycle, resulting in a fifteen-month reporting period.

Annual Report

Annual Report 2015-2016

We are very proud of another successful year protecting our local environment, making solid progress on public access and critical habitat restoration projects funded by voter-approved Measure AA, and providing a wide-range of programs and services to the many communities we serve.
During this past year, we made innovative organizational changes that focused on increasing our effectiveness as a regional open space agency and our responsiveness to the public. Those changes are already bearing fruit as we have accelerated the delivery of major projects which include the opening of three closed areas over the next two years: the summit of Mount Umunhum and Lower La Honda Creek in 2017 and western Bear Creek Redwoods in late 2018.

The work plan and corresponding funding plan for the coming year that embodies the mission of the Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District to acquire and preserve a regional greenbelt of open space, protect and restore the natural environment, and provide opportunities for low-impact public enjoyment and education.

2016-17 Budget & Action Plan

Strategic Plan

For the next 15 to 20 years and beyond the District imagines a future that equally balances the three components of our mission: preserving open space, protecting and restoring the natural environment, and providing public access and education. The adopted strategic plan will guide decisions to achieve the most beneficial impact with the available resources.


Financial and Operational Sustainability Model

To support Midpen’s commitment to implement Measure AA projects efficiently and effectively while maintaining on-going operations and programs, the agency chose to evaluate its structure, capacity and financial sustainability. The resulting Financial and Operational Sustainability Model (FOSM) Report is a proactive effort to address the changing demands of the organization.  Midpen has already begun implementation of numerous strategic recommendations in the FOSM.
