Budget and Action Plan
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, provide opportunities for low-impact public enjoyment and education, and preserve viable agricultural land and rural character on the Coastside.
For the next 15 to 20 years and beyond, Midpen imagines a future that balances the components of our mission: land acquisition and preservation; natural resources protection and restoration; ecologically sensitive public enjoyment and education; and for the Coastside, encouraging viable agricultural use of land resources and preserving rural character. The adopted strategic plan guides decisions to achieve the most beneficial impact with the available resources.
The annual Measure AA Bond Accountability Report reflects MAA expenditures for the previous fiscal year. Expenditures, progress and major accomplishments within each of the 25 priority actions and project portfolios outlined in Measure AA, providing updates on project work completed within the fiscal year.
A Bond Oversight Committee (BOC) is appointed by the Midpen board of directors to ensure accountability, transparency and public oversight of all funds collected and allocated under MAA. The BOC consists of seven at-large members of the public who reside within District boundaries and review the Annual Accountability Report and expenditure plan in parallel each year, presenting findings to the board at a public meeting.
The Annual Comprehensive Financial Report includes introductory, financial and statistical sections and is prepared by the Finance Department, in compliance with the principles and standards for financial reporting established by the Governmental Accounting Standards Board. The financial section includes the audited financial statements and the independent auditor’s report. Prior to FY2016-17, Midpen presented an annual audited financial report.
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 completed most of the strategic recommendations in the FOSM.
