Progress toward cleanup, opening of trails at Mount Umunhum By Stephen Baxter San Jose Mercury New (CA) May 17, 2010It will be at least three years before Silicon Valley residents can hike and enjoy the panoramic view at Mount Umunhum, but federal officials announced in mid-May that the former Air Force base near south San Jose is on track to open.
The former Almaden Air Force Station - known for its cubed radar tower visible to much of San Jose on a clear day - recently received $3.2 million from the federal government to help clean it up and open new trails and facilities. Roughly 25 buildings are likely to be demolished at the summit of Umunhum, and it will cost $11.5 million to remove the buildings and the plan and construct new trails and facilities.
U.S. Reps. Mike Honda and Zoe Lofgren helped secure the recent contribution to the project, and public meetings to plan new public facilities on the mountain are expected to start in late summer.
