The applicant’s HCP describes the minimization and mitigation measures proposed to address the effects of the project on the scrub-jay.

Public Availability of Comments Before including your address, phone number, email 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. Applicant’s Proposed Project We received an application for an incidental take permit, along with a proposed habitat conservation plan. The applicant requests a 5-year permit under section 10(a)(1)(B) of the Act (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.). If we approve the permit, the applicant anticipates taking 1.49 acre of Florida scrub-jay breeding, feeding, and sheltering habitat for construction of a single family residence and associated infrastructure. The project is located on parcel 402423477003 at latitude 26.977278, longitude—81.875388, Charlotte County, Florida. PO 00000 Frm 00070 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 52965 The applicant proposes to mitigate for the loss of 1.49 acres of occupied scrubjay habitat by onsite establishment of a 3.8 acre conservation easement to be managed by Charlotte Harbor Environmental Center, along with a fee of $11,400 for perpetual maintenance of the donated land, within 30 days of permit issuance. Our Preliminary Determination The Service has made a preliminary determination that the applicant’s project, including the proposed mitigation and minimization measures, will individually and cumulatively have a minor or negligible effect on the species covered in the HCP. Therefore, issuance of the ITP is a ‘‘low-effect’’ action and qualifies as a categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) (40 CFR 1506.6), as provided by the Department of the Interior Manual (516 DM 2 Appendix 1 and 516 DM 6 Appendix 1), and as defined in our Habitat Conservation Planning Handbook (November 1996). We base our determination that issuance of the ITP qualifies as a loweffect action on the following three criteria: (1) Implementation of the project would result in minor or negligible effects on federally listed, proposed, and candidate species and their habitats; (2) Implementation of the project would result in minor or negligible effects on other environmental values or resources; and (3) Impacts of the plan, considered together with the impacts of other past, present, and reasonably foreseeable similarly situated projects, would not result, over time, in cumulative effects to environmental values or resources that would be considered significant. As more fully explained in our environmental action statement and associated Low-Effect Screening Form, the applicant’s proposed project qualifies as a ‘‘low-effect’’ project. This preliminary determination may be revised based on our review of public comments that we receive in response to this notice. Next Steps 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. 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 intraService section 7 consultation. The results of this consultation, in combination with the above findings, will be used in the final analysis to E:\FR\FM\27AUN1.SGM 27AUN1
