Renewal of Approved Information Collection; OMB Control No. 1004-0029, 79092-79093 [2015-31901]

The taking will be incidental. We find that take will be incidental to otherwise lawful activities, including: public or private land development projects; construction, maintenance, and/or improvement of roads, bridges, and other transportation infrastructure; and installation and/or maintenance of utility infrastructure. 2. The applicants will, to the maximum extent practicable, minimize and mitigate the impacts of such takings. The Applicant’s have developed and are committed to implementing a wide variety of conservation measures intended to minimize and mitigate the impacts of incidental taking that may result from the Covered Activities. 3. The applicants will develop an HCP and ensure that adequate funding for the HCP will be provided. The Applicants have developed an HCP, which includes a detailed estimate of the costs of implementing the SEP HCP (see Chapter 11of the HCP). The funding necessary to pay for implementing the SEP HCP will come mostly from participation fees and public funding sources. 4. The taking will not appreciably reduce the likelihood of survival and recovery of any listed species in the wild. As the federal action agency considering whether to issue an ITP to the Applicants, we have reviewed the proposed action under section 7 of the Act. Our biological opinion, dated November 20, 2015, concluded that issuance of the ITP will not jeopardize the continued existence of the Covered Species in the wild. No areas designated as critical habitat will be adversely modified. The biological opinion also analyzes other listed species within the planning area and concludes that the direct and indirect effect of the issuance of the ITP will not appreciably reduce the likelihood of survival and recovery of other listed species or destroy or adversely modify any designated critical habitat. 5. The applicants agree to implement other measures that the Service requires as being necessary or appropriate for the purposes of the HCP. We have assisted the Applicants in the development of the SEP HCP, commented on draft documents, participated in numerous meetings, and worked closely with them throughout the development of the HCP, so conservation of Covered Species would be assured and recovery would not be precluded by the Covered Activities. The SEP HCP incorporates our recommendations for minimization and VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:20 Dec 17, 2015 Jkt 238001 mitigation of impacts, as well as steps to monitor the effects of the HCP and ensure success. Annual monitoring, as well as coordination and reporting mechanisms, have been designed to ensure that changes in the conservation measures can be implemented if proposed measures prove ineffective (adaptive management). We have determined that the Proposed SEP HCP Alternative best balances the protection and management of habitat for Covered Species while providing an efficient means for compliance with the Act for the Covered Species in the permit area. Considerations used in this decision include whether (1) mitigation will benefit the Covered Species, (2) adaptive management of the conservation measures will ensure that the goals and objectives of the HCP are realized, (3) conservation measures will protect and enhance habitat, (4) mitigation measures for the Covered Species will fully offset anticipated impacts to species and provide recovery opportunities, and (5) the HCP is consistent with the Covered Species’ recovery plans, where they exist. A final permit decision will be made no sooner than 30 days after the publication of this notice of availability and completion of the record of decision.
