These accomplishments are extensive and varied, showing a focus on major preserve opening projects such as the Mount Umunhum Summit in the Sierra Azul Preserve, La Honda Creek Preserve, and Bear Creek Redwoods Preserve. They also show significant efforts on complex resource restoration priorities, education, and outreach to the District’s diverse preserve visitors, effective partnerships with other organizations to better fulfill the mission, and focus and dedication to the ongoing operational requirements of managing over 63,000 acres of open space.

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.
