Using Measure AA and other funding sources, Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District (Midpen) delivers multiple facilities projects annually to fulfill commitments made to the public regarding greater access and outdoor education, protected open space lands, and resource restoration.  Midpen is seeking a Facilities Maintenance Supervisor to manage maintenance and improvements of buildings and facilities for the staff and public. Responsibilities of the position include:  the maintenance and operations of the Midpen’s administrative office, project work on District staff field offices and facilities (such as rental residences, water supply systems, as well as public buildings such as the Midpen’s David Daniels Nature Center).  Work will include both permitting and contracting for services as well as supervising and overseeing District staff work.

The Facilities Maintenance Supervisor is responsible for performing, developing, executing and managing maintenance, repair or minor improvement projects utilizing contractors and is assigned supervision of Midpen staff, for a wide variety of duties including maintenance, trades work, and administrative work.

About the District: Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District is comprised of over 63,000 acres of land and 26 open space preserves protected for public enjoyment.  In 2014, with broad public support, the District secured $300 million dollars of bond capacity with the passing of Measure AA, which serves as a mandate for Midpen to continue to pursue our mission to “acquire and preserve” open space land and “protect and restore the natural environment” in the lush regional green-belt system near Silicon Valley in the San Francisco Bay Area.  To learn more about Midpen, visit our website, OpenSpace.org, and view our employee video “Working for Midpen” on the Jobs page.
