Los Angeles County Regional Park and Open Space District

The Regional Park and Open Space District (RPOSD) was created with the passage of Proposition A in 1992 and continues its mission “to enrich and empower the communities of Los Angeles County through innovative grantmaking for parks and open space” with the approval of Measure A by the voters of Los Angeles County in 2016. RPOSD is a special district whose boundaries are the same as the County of Los Angeles and the County’s Board of Supervisors serve ex officio as its Board of Directors. The District’s mandate is to collect taxes within the boundaries (as approved by over two thirds of the voters) and to grant out funds to the County’s 88 cities, local park agencies and non-profits for improving, refurbishing and creating new park projects.

As a California Special District established pursuant to Section 5500 of the Public Resource Code, officers and employees of the County may act ex officio as the officers and employees of the Regional Park and Open Space District (RPOSD). In order to maintain transparency and accountability to the public and fairness to its various grant recipients, the District operates as an independent agency of the County, with the District Administrator reporting directly to the Director of Parks and Recreation, as the ex officio Director of RPOSD, with clear separation from its grant recipients in all aspects of District administration including, but not limited to, personnel, fiscal, budget, and audit functions.
