The Midpeninsula Regional Open Space Agency Board of Directors voted Wednesday night to grant permanent property rights at Mount Umunhum to the Amah Mutsun Tribal Band, which considers the site sacred. The cultural conservation easement would allow the tribe to build a garden and hold up to six private ceremonies at the summit each year.
