Open Space-the next 40 years-Measure AA-June 3 Ballot
Curt Riffle — board member for our Mountain View-Los Altos ward of the Midpeninsua Regional Open Space District (MROSD) — will be our speaker. Come learn more about what the bond money will do and ask questions. Cost is $25 per person. RSVP online now for this lunch with the League. Space is limited.
Our League supported the formation of MROSD in 1972 and we believe that the District has done an outstanding job in acquiring property for “passive” recreational use and for protecting open space resources. Over 62,000 acres have been protected since MROSD’s inception. Now the District needs funding to open much of this acreage to the public, and to fund additional acquisitions.
Recently the board completed a series of public visioning meetings to shape the direction and priorities of the District. The resulting plan reflects the public’s input on the 25 top projects to expand, enhance, and connect regional trails and open space areas, to preserve open space, and to complete restoration projects. The Leagues of Women Voters of Santa Clara County and San Mateo County have endorsed the ballot measure, Measure AA, because our natural resources position supports measures that ensure adequate parks and protection of natural resources, open space, and agricultural land, both outside urban growth boundaries and in urbanized areas
