Residential construction for the Barth HCP will take place within section 11, Township 41, Range 20, Englewood, Charlotte County, Florida, at 7185 Rosemont Drive. This lot is within scrub-jay occupied habitat. The lot encompasses about 0.34 acre, and the footprint of the home, infrastructure, and landscaping precludes retention of scrub-jay habitat on this lot. In order to minimize take onsite the Applicant proposes to mitigate for the loss of 0.34 acre of scrub-jay habitat by contributing a total of $70,722.72 to the Florida Scrub-jay Conservation Fund administered by The Nature Conservancy or acquire 0.68 acre of credit in a Service approved conservation bank. The Conservation Fund is earmarked for use in the conservation and recovery of scrub-jays and may include habitat acquisition, restoration, and/or management. The Service has determined that the Applicant’s proposal, including the proposed mitigation and minimization measures, will have a minor or negligible effect on the species covered in the HCP. Therefore, the ITP is a ‘‘loweffect’’ project and qualifies as a categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), as provided by the Department of the Interior Manual (516 DM 2, Appendix 1 and 516 DM 6, Appendix 1). This preliminary information may be revised based on our review of public comments that we receive in response to this notice. Low-effect HCPs are those involving (1) minor or negligible effects on federally listed or candidate species and their habitats, and (2) minor or negligible effects on other environmental values or resources. The Service will evaluate the HCP and comments submitted thereon to determine whether the application meets the requirements of section 10(a) of the Act (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.). If it is determined that those requirements are met, the ITP will be issued for the incidental take of the Florida scrub-jay. The Service will also evaluate whether issuance of the section 10(a)(1)(B) ITP complies with section 7 of the Act by conducting an intra-Service section 7 consultation. The results of this consultation, in combination with the above findings, will be used in the final analysis to determine whether or not to issue the ITP.

    Residential construction for the Barth HCP will take place within 
section 11, Township 41, Range 20, Englewood, Charlotte County, 
Florida, at 7185 Rosemont Drive. This lot is within scrub-jay occupied 
habitat.
    The lot encompasses about 0.34 acre, and the footprint of the home, 
infrastructure, and landscaping precludes retention of scrub-jay 
habitat on this lot. In order to minimize take onsite the Applicant 
proposes to mitigate for the loss of 0.34 acre of scrub-jay habitat by 
contributing a total of $70,722.72 to the Florida Scrub-jay 
Conservation Fund administered by The Nature Conservancy or acquire 
0.68 acre of credit in a Service approved conservation bank. The 
Conservation Fund is earmarked for use in the conservation and recovery 
of scrub-jays and may include habitat acquisition, restoration, and/or 
management.
    The Service has determined that the Applicant's proposal, including 
the proposed mitigation and minimization measures, will have a minor or 
negligible effect on the species covered in the HCP. Therefore, the ITP 
is a ``low-effect'' project and qualifies as a categorical exclusion 
under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), as provided by the 
Department of the Interior Manual (516 DM 2, Appendix 1 and 516 DM 6, 
Appendix 1). This preliminary information may be revised based on our 
review of public comments that we receive in response to this notice. 
Low-effect HCPs are those involving (1) minor or negligible effects on 
federally listed or candidate species and their habitats, and (2) minor 
or negligible effects on other environmental values or resources.
    The Service will evaluate the HCP and comments submitted thereon to 
determine whether the application meets the requirements of section 
10(a) of the Act (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.). If it is determined that 
those requirements are met, the ITP will be issued for the incidental 
take of the Florida scrub-jay. The Service will also evaluate whether 
issuance of the section 10(a)(1)(B) ITP complies with section 7 of the 
Act by conducting an intra-Service section 7 consultation. The results 
of this consultation, in combination with the above findings, will be 
used in the final analysis to determine whether or not to issue the 
ITP.

    Authority: This notice is provided pursuant to section 10 of the 
Endangered Species Act (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.) and NEPA regulations 
(40 CFR 1506.6).
