Steve Abbors, general manager of the Los Altos-based Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District, plans to retire after nearly a decade at the public agency’s helm. He will stay on through the end of the year.

“Steve came aboard during a pivotal time for Midpen and helped us change course by continuing to preserve land while increasing our restoration and public access efforts,” said Larry Hassett, Midpen board president. “His leadership was critical in sustainably growing the organization to meet the needs of the public we serve.”
