Midpen closed escrow on a larger office building Feburary 1, 2019 to meet its long-term office space needs. The newly purchased building underwent reconfiguration to allow Midpen to serve the public and continue fulfilling its mission.
Need for More Office Space
Midpen’s success in growing the regional greenbelt has created an office space issue for the District. Since voters created the District in 1972, Midpen's focus has grown from primarily acquiring land for preservation to a more balanced delivery of its mission that also includes restoration and stewardship of natural resources, opening land for public enjoyment and education and supporting sustainable agriculture on the San Mateo County coast. Midpen has been leasing additional office space since 2013 to house the staff necessary to accommodate this growth.
