The Open Space Authority is committed to providing open, transparent, and accountable government. Transparency promotes accountability and provides information for citizens about what their government is doing. Open and transparent government requires that the business of the Authority be open to public review. The Open Space Authority achieves transparency by communicating with members of the community and encouraging participation in decision-making processes.

The Board and Staff of the Authority work together with the community to ensure the public trust and establish a system of transparency, public participation, and collaboration. Openness strengthens our agency and promotes efficiency and effectiveness in its operations.
