SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: We, the Fish and Wildlife Service, announce receipt of an application from Summergate Development, LLC (applicant) for an incidental take permit (ITP) under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (ESA; 16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.). The applicant requests the ITP to take the federally listed sand skink (Neoseps reynoldsi) incidental to the construction of a residential subdivision (project) in Lake County, Florida. We request public comment on PO 00000 Frm 00061 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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 Summergate Development, LLC requests a 10-year ITP to take sand skinks by converting approximately 3.1 acres of occupied skink foraging and sheltering habitat incidental to the construction of a residential subdivision located on a 57.57-acre parcel in Section 6, Township 23 South, Range 26 East, Lake County, Florida. The applicant proposes to mitigate for take of the sand skinks by purchasing 6.2 credits from a Service-approved Conservation Bank. The Service would require the applicant to make this purchase prior to engaging in activities associated with the project. 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 sand skinks 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 loweffect HCP is one that would result in (1) minor or negligible effects on E:\FR\FM\17JAN1.SGM 17JAN1
