Through a public process, staff is creating an agricultural policy to clarify and define Midpen’s role in encouraging viable agriculture on the San Mateo County Coast. The policy will:
Consolidate existing board-adopted agricultural policies in Midpen’s Basic Policy, Resource Management Policies (Which include a Conservation Grazing Policy), Coastal Service Plan and other documents to address any inconsistencies and conflicts. See the documents section below.
Evaluate gaps and areas requiring clarification, such as Midpen’s role in providing farmworker housing.
Provide a decision-making tool for Midpen staff and board that is informed, consistent and effective.
