ACTION: Notice of intent, request for comments. AGENCY: We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), advise the SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:07 Aug 29, 2012 Jkt 226001 public that we, in coordination with our planning partners, intend to prepare the Midwest Wind Energy Multi-Species Habitat Conservation Plan (MSHCP) under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (ESA). The planning partners are currently considering for inclusion in the MSHCP certain species that are federally listed, as well as other species likely to become listed, within the eight-State planning area. Planning partners in this effort include the conservation agencies for the eight states, The Conservation Fund, and the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA). We provide this notice to (1) Describe the proposal; (2) advise other Federal and State agencies, potentially affected tribal interests, and the public of our intent to prepare the MSHCP; (3) seek public input, suggestions, and information on any issues pertaining to this planning process; (4) and to seek public input on what the permit area should be within the eight-State planning area. DATES: To ensure consideration, we request written comments on or before October 1, 2012. ADDRESSES: Send your comments or request information by any one of the following methods: U.S. Mail: Regional Director, Attn: Rick Amidon, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Ecological Services, 5600 American Blvd. West, Suite 990, Bloomington, MN 55437–1458; Facsimile: 612/713–5292 (Attn: Rick Amidon); or Email: midwestwindhcp@fws.gov. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Rick Amidon, (612) 713–5164. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 9 of the ESA (16 U.S.C. 1538) and its implementing regulations prohibit take of species listed as endangered or threatened. The definition of take under the ESA includes to ‘‘harass, harm, pursue, hunt, shoot, wound, kill, trap, capture, or collect listed species or to attempt to engage in such conduct’’ (16 U.S.C. 1532(19)). Section 10 of the ESA (16 U.S.C. 1539) establishes a program whereby persons seeking to pursue activities that are otherwise legal, but could result in take of federally protected species, may receive an incidental take permit (ITP). Covered Land The planning area encompasses the Midwest Region of the Service and includes all or portions of the following eight States: Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, and Wisconsin. The specific land that the MSHCP will cover (‘‘covered land or permit area’’) have yet to be determined PO 00000 Frm 00079 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 and could be all or portions of the eight States. Once identified, the ‘‘covered land’’ will be the general locations where future ITPs could be issued under the MSHCP. Land not identified as ‘‘covered land’’ will not be eligible for an ITP under this planning effort; however, individual take authorizations could be developed for those areas outside of this planning effort. Covered Activities The activities proposed to be covered (‘‘covered activities’’) under the MSHCP include the siting, construction, operation, maintenance, and decommissioning of wind energy facilities within all or portions of the eight-State planning area. Activities associated with the management of mitigation land would also be covered. We anticipate that this MSHCP will include new and existing small-scale wind energy facilities, such as singleturbine demonstration projects, as well as large, multi-turbine commercial wind facilities. Covered Species The planning partners are currently considering, for inclusion in the MSHCP, certain species that are federally listed or likely to become listed, and have the potential to be taken by wind energy facilities within the planning area. Those ‘‘covered species’’ include the endangered Indiana bat (Myotis sodalis), the endangered gray bat (Myotis grisescens), the endangered piping plover (Charadrius melodus), the endangered interior least tern (Sternula antillarum athalassos), the endangered Kirtland’s warbler (Setophaga kirtlandii), the little brown bat (Myotis lucifugus), the northern-long eared bat (Myotis septentrionalis), and the eastern small-footed bat (Myotis leibii), all of which are species of concern. The bald eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) is also being considered as a ‘‘covered species,’’ but no decision has been made at this time. The final list of ‘‘covered species’’ may include all these species, a subset of these species, or additional species, based on the outcome of the planning process. The MSHCP will be multifaceted in addressing species protection, including, but not limited to, avoidance, minimization of take (e.g., through proven and defined best management practices), and mitigation to offset the impacts of take through potential habitat preservation, restoration, and enhancement. Future applicants seeking an ITP must also ensure that adequate funding for implementation, including biological and compliance monitoring, is provided. E:\FR\FM\30AUN1.SGM 30AUN1
