Take of listed fish or wildlife is defined under the Act as ‘‘to harass, harm, pursue, hunt, shoot, wound, kill, trap, capture, or collect, or to attempt to engage in any such conduct’’ (16 U.S.C. 1532). However, under limited circumstances, we issue permits to authorize incidental take—i.e., take that is incidental to, and not the purpose of, the carrying out of an otherwise lawful activity. Regulations governing incidental take permits for threatened and endangered species are in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) at 50 CFR 17.32 and 17.22, respectively. The Act’s take prohibitions do not apply to Federally listed plants on private lands unless such take would violate State law. In addition to meeting other criteria, an incidental take permit’s proposed actions must not jeopardize the existence of Federally listed fish, wildlife, or plants. Applicant’s Proposal The applicant has been approved for take of approximately 0.3 ac of occupied Florida scrub-jay foraging and sheltering habitat incidental to construction of an expansion to an existing YMCA facility, and seeks a 5-year extension on an existing permit. The 10-ac project is located on parcel # 08–18–31–00–00– 0070 within Section 08, Township 18 South, Range 31 East, Volusia County, Florida. The project includes construction of an expansion to the existing YMCA facility and the associated infrastructure, and landscaping. The applicant has been approved to mitigate for the take of the PO 00000 Frm 00046 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 77651 Florida scrub-jay by restoring and managing ±1.3 acres onsite of habitat occupied by the covered species. Our Preliminary Determination We have determined that the applicant’s proposal, including the proposed mitigation and minimization measures, would have minor or negligible effects on the species covered in the HCP. Therefore, we determined that the ITP is a ‘‘low-effect’’ project and qualifies for 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). The notice for this permit was published in the Federal Register on May 9, 2008 (73 FR 26407), and the ITP was issued on August 25, 2008. A loweffect HCP is one 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. Next Steps We will evaluate the plan and comments we receive to determine whether the ITP extension application meets the requirements of section 10(a) of the Act (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.). If we determine that the application meets these requirements, we will issue the extension of ITP # TE176788–0. In August 2008 we determined issuance of the section 10(a)(1)(B) ITP complies with section 7 of the Act by conducting an intra-Service section 7 consultation. We will use the results of this consultation, in combination with the above findings, in our final analysis to determine whether or not to issue the ITP extension. If the requirements are met, we will issue the permit extension to the applicant. Public Comments If you wish to comment on the permit application, plan, and associated documents, you may submit comments by any one of the methods in ADDRESSES. Public Availability of Comments Before including your address, phone number, e-mail address, or other personal identifying information in your comments, you should be aware that your entire comment—including your personal identifying information—may be made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.

Abstract We provide this notice under Section 10 of the Act and NEPA regulations (40 CFR 1506.6). USGS supports some of the most pressing resource management, environmental and climate change science issues faced by our Nation. Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) is the leading technology for collecting highly accurate three-dimensional measurements of the Earth’s topography and surface features such as buildings, bridges, coastlines, rivers, forests and other landscape characteristics. These data provide an unprecedented tool for scientific understanding and inform National decisions related to ecosystem management, energy development, natural resource conservation and mitigating geologic and flood-related hazards. The USGS now collects LiDAR data to a limited extent and primarily for upgrading bare-earth elevation data for The National Map. This study seeks to establish a baseline of national business needs and associated benefits for LiDAR to enhance the responsiveness of USGS programs, and to design an efficient future program that balances requirements, benefits and costs. The study advances coordinated program development among the numerous Federal and State agencies that increasingly rely on LiDAR to enable the fulfillment of their missions. The study is sponsored by the National Digital Elevation Program steering committee and supported by several member agencies. The information collection process will be guided by an interagency management team led by USGS with support from a professional services contractor. The information collection will be conducted using a standardized template. Responses are one-time and voluntary. Dated: December 3, 2010. David L.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    Section 9 of the Act (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.) and our implementing 
Federal regulations in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) at 50 CFR 
17 prohibit the ``take'' of fish or wildlife species listed as 
endangered or threatened. Take of listed fish or wildlife is defined 
under the Act as ``to harass, harm, pursue, hunt, shoot, wound, kill, 
trap, capture, or collect, or to attempt to engage in any such 
conduct'' (16 U.S.C. 1532). However, under limited circumstances, we 
issue permits to authorize incidental take--i.e., take that is 
incidental to, and not the purpose of, the carrying out of an otherwise 
lawful activity.
    Regulations governing incidental take permits for threatened and 
endangered species are in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) at 50 
CFR 17.32 and 17.22, respectively. The Act's take prohibitions do not 
apply to Federally listed plants on private lands unless such take 
would violate State law. In addition to meeting other criteria, an 
incidental take permit's proposed actions must not jeopardize the 
existence of Federally listed fish, wildlife, or plants.

Applicant's Proposal

    The applicant has been approved for take of approximately 0.3 ac of 
occupied Florida scrub-jay foraging and sheltering habitat incidental 
to construction of an expansion to an existing YMCA facility, and seeks 
a 5-year extension on an existing permit. The 10-ac project is located 
on parcel  08-18-31-00-00-0070 within Section 08, Township 18 
South, Range 31 East, Volusia County, Florida. The project includes 
construction of an expansion to the existing YMCA facility and the 
associated infrastructure, and landscaping. The applicant has been 
approved to mitigate for the take of the Florida scrub-jay by restoring 
and managing 1.3 acres onsite of habitat occupied by the 
covered species.

Our Preliminary Determination

    We have determined that the applicant's proposal, including the 
proposed mitigation and minimization measures, would have minor or 
negligible effects on the species covered in the HCP. Therefore, we 
determined that the ITP is a ``low-effect'' project and qualifies for 
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). The notice for this permit was 
published in the Federal Register on May 9, 2008 (73 FR 26407), and the 
ITP was issued on August 25, 2008. A low-effect HCP is one 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.

Next Steps

    We will evaluate the plan and comments we receive to determine 
whether the ITP extension application meets the requirements of section 
10(a) of the Act (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.). If we determine that the 
application meets these requirements, we will issue the extension of 
ITP  TE176788-0. In August 2008 we determined issuance of the 
section 10(a)(1)(B) ITP complies with section 7 of the Act by 
conducting an intra-Service section 7 consultation. We will use the 
results of this consultation, in combination with the above findings, 
in our final analysis to determine whether or not to issue the ITP 
extension. If the requirements are met, we will issue the permit 
extension to the applicant.

Public Comments

    If you wish to comment on the permit application, plan, and 
associated documents, you may submit comments by any one of the methods 
in ADDRESSES.

Public Availability of Comments

    Before including your address, phone number, e-mail address, or 
other personal identifying information in your comments, you should be 
aware that your entire comment--including your personal identifying 
information--may be made publicly available at any time. While you can 
ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying 
information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be 
able to do so.
