[[Page 48169]]

Species Act of 1973, as amended (ESA; 16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.). The 
applicant requests the ITP to take the federally listed Florida scrub-
jay (Aphelocoma coerulescens) incidental to the construction of an 
industrial/warehouse development (project) in Volusia County, Florida. 
We request public comment on the application, which includes the 
applicant's proposed habitat conservation plan (HCP) and the Service's 
preliminary determination that this HCP qualifies as ``low-effect,'' 
categorically excluded, under the National Environmental Policy Act 
(NEPA; 42 U.S.C. 4231 et seq.). To make this determination, we used our 
environmental action statement and low-effect screening form, which are 
also available for public review.

Project

    The KBC Development requests a 10-year ITP to take scrub-jays 
incidental to the conversion of approximately 6.8 acres of occupied 
scrub-jay foraging and sheltering habitat for the construction of an 
industrial/warehouse development located on a 20.6-acre parcel in 
Section 4, Township 19 South, Range 30 East, Volusia County, Florida. 
The applicant proposes to mitigate for take of the scrub-jays by 
contributing $208,447.20 to the Florida Scrub-jay Conservation Fund 
administered by The Nature Conservancy. The Service would require the 
applicant to make this contribution prior to engaging in activities 
associated with the project on the parcel.

Public Availability of Comments

    Before including your address, phone number, email address, or 
other personal identifying information in your comment, be aware that 
your entire comment--including your personal identifying information--
may be made available to the public. While you may request that we 
withhold your personal identifying information, we cannot guarantee 
that we will be able to do so.

Our Preliminary Determination

    The Service has made a preliminary determination that the 
applicant's project, including land clearing, infrastructure building, 
landscaping, and the proposed mitigation measure, would individually 
and cumulatively have a minor or negligible effect on the scrub-jays 
and the environment. Therefore, we have preliminarily concluded that 
the ITP for this project would qualify for categorical exclusion and 
the HCP is low effect under our NEPA regulations at 43 CFR 46.205 and 
46.210. A low-effect HCP is one that would result in (1) minor or 
negligible effects on federally listed, proposed, and candidate species 
and their habitats; (2) minor or negligible effects on other 
environmental values or resources; and, (3) impacts that, when 
considered together with the impacts of other past, present, and 
reasonably foreseeable similarly situated projects, would not over time 
result in significant cumulative effects to environmental values or 
resources.

Next Steps

    The Service will evaluate the application and the comments received 
to determine whether to issue the requested permit. We will also 
conduct an intra-Service consultation pursuant to section 7 of the ESA 
to evaluate the effects of the proposed take. After considering the 
above findings, we will determine whether the permit issuance criteria 
of section 10(a)(1)(B) of the ESA have been met. If met, the Service 
will issue ITP number TE 41049D-0 to KBC Development.

Authority

    The Service provides this notice under section 10(c) (16 U.S.C. 
1539(c)) of the ESA and NEPA regulation 40 CFR 1506.6.
