The application addresses the potential for ‘‘take’’ of the endangered Palos Verdes blue butterfly (Glaucopsyche lygdamus palosverdesensis, ‘‘PVB’’) associated with restoration and management of the Linden H. Chandler Preserve (‘‘Preserve’’) in the City of Rolling Hills Estates, Los Angeles County, California. Following reintroduction of PVB to the Preserve, measures to minimize impacts to PVB would be implemented as described in the proposed Restoration and Management of the Linden H. Chandler Preserve Low Effect Habitat Conservation Plan (proposed HCP), which would be implemented by the applicant. We are requesting comments on the permit application and on the preliminary determination that the proposed HCP qualifies as a ‘‘LowSUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00084 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 47209 effect’’ Habitat Conservation Plan, eligible for a categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, as amended.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: ADDRESSES: Availability of Documents Individuals wishing copies of the application, proposed HCP, and EAS should immediately contact the Service by telephone at (760) 431–9440 or by letter to the Carlsbad Fish and Wildlife Office. Copies of the proposed HCP and EAS also are available for public inspection during regular business hours at the Carlsbad Fish and Wildlife Office [see ADDRESSES]. Background Section 9 of the Act and its implementing Federal regulations prohibit the take of animal species listed as endangered or threatened. Take is defined under the Act as to harass, harm, pursue, hunt, shoot, wound, kill, trap, capture or collect listed animal species, or attempt to engage in such conduct (16 U.S.C. 1538). However, under section 10(a) of the Act, the Service may issue permits to authorize incidental take of listed species. ‘‘Incidental take’’ is defined by the Act as take that is incidental to, and not the purpose of, carrying out an otherwise lawful activity. Regulations governing incidental take permits for threatened and endangered species, respectively, are found in the Code of Federal Regulations at 50 CFR 17.22 and 50 CFR 17.32. The applicant is seeking a permit for take of the Palos Verdes blue butterfly during the life of the permit. This species is referred to as the ‘‘PVB’’ in the proposed HCP. The PVB is restricted to the Palos Verdes Peninsula in Los Angeles County, California. E:\FR\FM\13AUN1.SGM 13AUN1
