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