The Midpen board of directors holds its regular meetings on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month at 7 p.m. at the Midpen Administrative Office: 5050 El Camino Real, Los Altos, CA.
Consistent with Government Code section 54953(e) and Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District Resolution 21-33 most meetings will be conducted in a hybrid manner. Individuals can attend in person or via Zoom. Links to the meetings are included with each agenda. Some board members may be teleconferencing into the meeting via a virtual platform.
Additional special public hearings and neighborhood meetings are held periodically on specific issues. The public is invited and encouraged to attend these meetings and to participate in the decision-making process. Citizen participation is an essential part of the planning process for the development and use of the District's open space preserves.
