Endangered Species; Recovery Permit Applications, 5462-5464 [2019-02914]

Download as PDF 5462 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 35 / Thursday, February 21, 2019 / Notices amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with NOTICES1 annual statewide take exposure. The amendment would not affect the 2016 HCP’s sliding scale method for determining the annual allowable take of broods, nests, or territories based on the 3-year running statewide population average. In addition, the amendment would apply to only two covered activities: ‘‘Use of Roads and Parking Lots in the Vicinity of Unfledged Chicks’’ and ‘‘OSV Use in the Vicinity of Unfledged Chicks.’’ It would not apply to ‘‘Recreation Management and Beach Operations.’’ Additionally, the proposed amendment would not alter limits on the habitat, broods, or pairs affected through reduced proactive fencing, reduced buffers around nests, or nest moving. The FONSI anticipates some sitespecific impacts to piping plovers as a result of the increase in allowable take exposure and associated decrease in productivity at up to eight sites. However, the FONSI anticipates that the impacts to the piping plover and the human environment statewide will be essentially the same as those previously analyzed in our 2016 Environmental Assessment (EA), because at a full allocation of authorized take, for any increase in breeding pairs exposed to take at one site, the MADFW would have to make a corresponding reduction in the remaining number of pairs that could be exposed to take at other sites. Moreover, the nature of the activities being conducted has not changed. National Environmental Policy Act When we issued the initial permit to the MADFW, we thoroughly analyzed the associated impacts to the human environment in our EA, concluding our NEPA analysis with a Finding of No Significant Impacts. We prepared a draft FONSI on the proposed action and have made it available for public inspection (see Availability of Documents). In it, we tentatively determine that the proposed action would not cause significant impacts on the human environment and that supplementation of the EA is not warranted. We base that preliminary conclusion on: The limited nature of the proposed amendment that the deviation from the maximum exposure limit at a site would apply in a minority of situations; the manner in which the activities will be conducted has not been altered; and, the overall take allocation remains unchanged. Public Comments The Service invites the public to comment on the proposed HCP amendment and draft FONSI during a 30-day public comment period (see DATES). You may submit comments by VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:08 Feb 20, 2019 Jkt 247001 one of the methods shown under ADDRESSES.
