About Us


Our History

The Morro Bay Open Space Alliance was formed in response to widespread interest in a “greenbelt” expressed by citizens at LEAP (Local Economic Action Plan) workshops in 2015. LEAP was a community-based planning process that identified specific action items people believed were important to the City’s quality of life and economic vitality.

Over the next year, volunteers defined a mission, selected a Board, and formalized the legal structure of the organization.  MBOSA is a 501 (c) 3 not-for-profit organization governed by a volunteer board of directors.

Mission Statement

The Morro Bay Open Space Alliance is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life of current and future residents and visitors through the conservation of open space in and around Morro Bay.
