Applicant’s Proposed Project We received an application from the applicant for renewal of an incidental take permit. The applicant requests a 5-year renewal of an ITP under section 10(a)(1)(B) of the Act (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.). If we approve the renewal, the applicant anticipates taking a total of approximately 1.91 acres of scrub-jay breeding, feeding, and sheltering habitat, incidental to land preparation and construction in Section 9, Township 40S, Range 23E, Charlotte County, Florida. The applicant currently has neither a time frame for development, nor a specific site plan; however, development of this parcel would likely include construction of one or more structures, a parking area, and installation of associated utilities. The applicant proposes to minimize impacts to scrub-jays by: (1) Using scrub oaks and other native plants in postconstruction landscaping; (2) avoiding land clearing activities during the scrubjay nesting season (March 1 to June 30); (3) avoiding planting trees that will be VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:39 Jun 22, 2015 Jkt 235001 30 feet in height or more when mature because they can be used as perches by predatory birds; and (4) refraining from keeping or feeding free-roaming cats. Mitigation for unavoidable impacts has been accomplished by the donation of 4.3 acres of suitable habitat to Charlotte County for scrub-jay conservation. The Service listed the scrub-jay as threatened in 1987 (June 3, 1987; 52 FR 20715), effective July 6, 1987. Our Preliminary Determination The Service has made a preliminary determination that the applicant’s project, including the mitigation measures, will individually and cumulatively have a minor or negligible effect on the species covered in the HCP. Therefore, renewal 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). We base our preliminary determination that issuance of the ITP qualifies as a low-effect 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 project, 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. 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 determine whether or not to renew the ITP. If it is determined that the requirements of the Act are met, the ITP will be renewed.

Applicant's Proposed Project

    We received an application from the applicant for renewal of an 
incidental take permit. The applicant requests a 5-year renewal of an 
ITP under section 10(a)(1)(B) of the Act (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.). If 
we approve the renewal, the applicant anticipates taking a total of 
approximately 1.91 acres of scrub-jay breeding, feeding, and sheltering 
habitat, incidental to land preparation and construction in Section 9, 
Township 40S, Range 23E, Charlotte County, Florida. The applicant 
currently has neither a time frame for development, nor a specific site 
plan; however, development of this parcel would likely include 
construction of one or more structures, a parking area, and 
installation of associated utilities.
    The applicant proposes to minimize impacts to scrub-jays by: (1) 
Using scrub oaks and other native plants in post-construction 
landscaping; (2) avoiding land clearing activities during the scrub-jay 
nesting season (March 1 to June 30); (3) avoiding planting trees that 
will be 30 feet in height or more when mature because they can be used 
as perches by predatory birds; and (4) refraining from keeping or 
feeding free-roaming cats. Mitigation for unavoidable impacts has been 
accomplished by the donation of 4.3 acres of suitable habitat to 
Charlotte County for scrub-jay conservation. The Service listed the 
scrub-jay as threatened in 1987 (June 3, 1987; 52 FR 20715), effective 
July 6, 1987.

Our Preliminary Determination

    The Service has made a preliminary determination that the 
applicant's project, including the mitigation measures, will 
individually and cumulatively have a minor or negligible effect on the 
species covered in the HCP. Therefore, renewal 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). We base our preliminary determination that issuance 
of the ITP qualifies as a low-effect 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 project, 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. 
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 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 renew the ITP. If it 
is determined that the requirements of the Act are met, the ITP will be 
renewed.

    Authority: We provide this notice under Section 10 of the 
Endangered Species Act (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.) and NEPA regulations 
(40 CFR 1506.6).
