Colette Pollard, Department Reports Management Officer, Office of the Chief Information Officer. Fish and Wildlife Service Mr. Bill Lynn, Fish and Wildlife Biologist (see ADDRESSES); telephone: 251–441– 5868. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Introduction We announce the availability of two proposed low-effect habitat conservation plans (HCP), which analyze the take of the Alabama beach mouse (Peromyscus polionotus ammobates) (ABM) incidental to construction of 19 single-family homes by West Beach LLC on a 1.02-acre lot and construction of single-family home by Charles M. Smith on a 0.39 acre lot in Gulf Shores, Alabama. The applicants request incidental take permits (ITP) under section 10(a)(1)(B) of the Endangered Species Act (Act; 16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.). If we approve these two ITP’s, the West Beach LLC anticipates the taking of up to 1.02 acres of ABM PO 00000 Frm 00055 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 habitat over a requested 25-year ITP, and Charles M. Smith anticipates the taking of up to 0.06 acre of ABM habitat over a 50-year ITP. Applicants’ Proposals West Beach LLC The applicant proposes to minimize and mitigate the take of up to 1.02 acres of ABM habitat at 1932 West Beach Boulevard, Gulf Shores, Alabama, by using routine ABM conservation measures at the proposed development (such as minimizing construction footprint, restoration of native vegetation, and measures to minimize effects to ABM during occupancy and use of the development) and by donating a 0.91-acre ‘‘inholding’’ lot of Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge (BSNWR). The lot proposed for development currently has a singlefamily house on it and a large portion of the lot has been previously used as a construction storage yard. The lot proposed for mitigation is within the acquisition boundary of Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge, and contains high-quality habitat and will be donated to the Alabama Coastal Heritage Trust (ACHT). ACHT will either place a conservation easement on the lot or eventually convey it to BSNWR. Charles M. Smith The applicant proposes to minimize and mitigate the take of up to 0.06 acres of ABM habitat at an inholding lot off Mobile Street within the Perdue Unit of Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge (BSNWR), Gulf Shores, Alabama by using standard ABM conservation measures at the proposed development and by donating an ‘‘in-lieu’’ fee to the Friends of Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge group (FBSNWR). The lot proposed for development currently is undeveloped, but will utilize an existing driveway to minimize impacts. The ‘‘inlieu’’ fee will be donated to the FBSNWR group whom will use the fee to either managed, maintain, or acquire ABM habitat within the BSNWR Perdue Unit. Our Preliminary Determination We have made a preliminary determination that the applicants’ projects, including the mitigation measures, will individually and cumulatively have a minor or negligible effect on the species covered in the HCPs. Therefore, our proposed issuance of the requested ITPs qualifies as a categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), as provided by Department of the Interior implementing regulations in part 46 of E:\FR\FM\24MYN1.SGM 24MYN1
