Major Accomplishments

The accomplishments listed below highlight the District’s focused efforts on each part of its mission—land acquisition and preservation; natural resources protection and restoration; public access, education, and outreach; and for the coastside, supporting local agriculture. These accomplishments are extensive and varied, and include major projects to open new preserve areas to the public, including Mount Umunhum, lower La Honda Creek Preserve, and the western area of Bear Creek Redwoods Preserve. They also show extensive progress on resource restoration priorities, education and outreach to diverse visitors, collaborative partnerships with other organizations, and ongoing administrative and operational requirements of preserving over 63,000 acres of public open space. On the San Mateo County Coast, accomplishments include improving agricultural infrastructure to support the conservation grazing program while preserving the coast’s rural character.

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.
