Present Land Use
The Santa Clara County General Plan designates the site "Other Public Lands," and the site is zoned HS (Hillsides)

Document Description
Note: Review per lead The project, proposes by MROSD, includes the demolition of existing structures, public access to the summit of Mount Umunhum, as well as roadway and access improvements, environmental restoration, development of public use facilities, and a range of possible amenities such as trails, observation and reflection areas, interpretive displays, picnic tables, restrooms, camp sites, and a visitor center. Other potential amenities include benches, a dedicated emergency callbox, hitching post, bicycle posts, and non-potable water (for horses and fire protection) stored onsite. The primary purpose of the proposed project is to establish a fiscally and environmentally sustainable visitor destination that aligns with MROSD's mission by balancing public access, enjoyment, and education with environmental restoration. Facilities at the summit will occur on land previously disturbed by activities associated with the former Almaden AFS.
