The draft EAS supports the Service’s preliminary determination that the proposed permit renewal associated with the modified SHA is eligible for a categorical exclusion 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. We must receive your written comments on or before September 22, 2021. Background Section 9 of the ESA prohibits the take of fish and wildlife species listed as endangered or threatened under section 4 of the ESA. Under the ESA, the term ‘‘take’’ means to harass, harm, pursue, hunt, shoot, wound, kill, trap, capture, or collect, or to attempt to engage in any such conduct (16 U.S.C. 1532(19)). The term ‘‘harm,’’ as defined in our regulations, includes significant habitat modification or degradation that results in death or injury to listed species by significantly impairing essential behavioral patterns, including breeding, feeding, or sheltering (50 CFR 17.3). The term ‘‘harass’’ is defined in our regulations as an intentional or negligent act or omission which creates the likelihood of injury to wildlife by annoying it to such an extent as to significantly disrupt normal behavioral patterns, which include, but are not limited to, breeding, feeding, or sheltering (50 CFR 17.3). Under specified circumstances, however, we may issue permits that authorize take of federally listed species, provided the take is incidental to, but not the purpose of, an otherwise lawful activity. Regulations governing permits for threatened species are at 50 CFR 17.32. Under a safe harbor agreement, participating landowners voluntarily undertake management activities on their property to enhance, restore, or maintain habitat benefiting species listed under the ESA. Safe harbor agreements, and the subsequent permits issued to participating landowners pursuant to section 10(a)(1)(A) of the ESA, encourage private and other nonFederal property owners to implement conservation actions for federally listed species by assuring the landowners that they will not be subjected to increased property use restrictions as a result of their efforts to either attract listed species to their property, or to increase the numbers or distribution of listed species already on their property. Enrolled landowners may make lawful use of the enrolled property during the permit term and may incidentally take the listed species named on the permit.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: We, the Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), have received a written request from Daytona State College (applicant) to renew an existing enhancement of survival permit (permit) for an additional 10 years beyond its current expiration date. The Service and the applicant have mutually agreed to minor amendments to the Safe Harbor Agreement (SHA). The existing permit associated with the SHA was issued on November 15, 2010, under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (ESA; 16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.), and is in effect until November 15, 2030. Renewing the permit associated with the SHA is intended to benefit the recovery of the federally listed threatened Florida scrub-jay (Aphelocoma coerulescens) on 76 enrolled acres (ac) of State-owned lands in Volusia County, Florida. The Service is making the proposed permit renewal, the modified SHA, and our draft VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:11 Aug 20, 2021 Jkt 253001 PO 00000 Frm 00092 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 47141 Application requirements and issuance criteria for permits associated with safe harbor agreements are found in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) at 50 CFR 17.22(c) and 17.32(c). As provided for in the Service’s final Safe Harbor Policy (64 FR 32717; June 17, 1999), safe harbor agreements provide assurances that allow the property owner to alter or modify their enrolled property, even if such alteration or modification results in the incidental take of a listed species, to such an extent that the property is returned back to the originally agreed upon baseline conditions. Private landowners may voluntarily terminate a safe harbor agreement at any time, in accordance with 50 CFR 13.26. If this occurs, landowners must relinquish the associated incidental take permit pursuant to section 10(a)(1)(A) of the ESA. Safe Harbor Agreement The State lands covered under the existing SHA and valid permit consist of 76 ac on the Daytona State College campus in Volusia County, Florida. The baseline established in 2010 was 1.4 ac of occupied Florida scrub-jay habitat. Daytona State College has managed the property above baseline and has not proceeded with facility development since entering the SHA. Proposed minor changes within the SHA-enrolled property include a revision to the master campus facility development plan. The revision would not affect the 2010 established baseline of 1.4 ac of occupied Florida scrub-jay, nor would it affect the SHA management actions. Under the modified SHA, the applicant will continue to undertake the following habitat maintenance and enhancement actions intended to benefit the Florida scrub-jay on the enrolled property: (1) Remove sand pine canopy; (2) create open sandy areas through mechanical means (including chopping and/or rootraking) or by using herbicides; and (3) manage habitat using prescribed fire and/or mechanical means. Under comment and review is the request to renew the existing valid Permit associated with the SHA that was issued November 15, 2010, under ESA, and is in effect until November 15, 2030. The applicant is requesting to extend the Permit period for an additional 10 years beyond its current expiration date. National Environmental Policy Act Compliance The renewal of the permit is a Federal action that triggers the need for compliance with NEPA. The Service has made a preliminary determination that the proposed permit renewal is eligible for categorical exclusion under NEPA, E:\FR\FM\23AUN1.SGM 23AUN1 47142 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 160 / Monday, August 23, 2021 / Notices based on the following criteria: (1) Implementation of the SHA would result in minor or negligible adverse effects on federally listed, proposed, and candidate species and their habitats; (2) implementation of the SHA would result in minor or negligible adverse effects on other environmental values or resources; and (3) impacts of the SHA, considered together with the impacts of other past, present, and reasonably foreseeable similarly situated projects, would not result, over time, in cumulative adverse effects to environmental values or resources which would be considered significant.

We invite public comment on these documents. Background The Service listed the Mount Hermon June beetle as endangered on January 24, 1997 (62 FR 3616). Section 9 of the ESA (16 U.S.C. 1538) prohibits the ‘‘take’’ of fish or wildlife species listed as endangered; by regulation, the Service may extend the take prohibition to fish or wildlife species listed as threatened. ‘‘Take’’ is defined under the ESA to include the following activities: ‘‘[T]o harass, harm, pursue, hunt, shoot, wound, kill, trap, capture, or collect, or to attempt to engage in any such conduct’’ (16 U.S.C. 1532); however, under section 10(a)(1)(B) of the ESA (16 U.S.C. 1539(a)(1)(B)), we may issue permits to authorize incidental take of listed wildlife species. Incidental take is take that is incidental to, and not the purpose of, carrying out an otherwise lawful activity. Regulations governing incidental take permits for endangered wildlife are in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) at 50 CFR 17.22. Issuance of an incidental take permit also must not jeopardize the existence of federally listed fish, wildlife, or plant species. Proposed Project Activities Chris Perri has applied for a permit for incidental take of the Mount Hermon June beetle. The take would occur in association with activities including the construction of 16 apartments and associated infrastructure within a 1.487acre project area. The entire 1.487-acre project area consists of suitable habitat for the Mount Hermon June beetle. The HCP includes avoidance and minimization measures for the Mount Hermon June beetle and mitigation for unavoidable loss of suitable habitat through the purchase of conservation credits at a Service-approved conservation bank.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: We, the Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), 
have received a written request from Daytona State College (applicant) 
to renew an existing enhancement of survival permit (permit) for an 
additional 10 years beyond its current expiration date. The Service and 
the applicant have mutually agreed to minor amendments to the Safe 
Harbor Agreement (SHA). The existing permit associated with the SHA was 
issued on November 15, 2010, under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, 
as amended (ESA; 16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.), and is in effect until 
November 15, 2030. Renewing the permit associated with the SHA is 
intended to benefit the recovery of the federally listed threatened 
Florida scrub-jay (Aphelocoma coerulescens) on 76 enrolled acres (ac) 
of State-owned lands in Volusia County, Florida. The Service is making 
the proposed permit renewal, the modified SHA, and our draft 
environmental action statement (EAS) available for public review and 
comment. The draft EAS supports the Service's preliminary determination 
that the proposed permit renewal associated with the modified SHA is 
eligible for a categorical exclusion 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.

Background

    Section 9 of the ESA prohibits the take of fish and wildlife 
species listed as endangered or threatened under section 4 of the ESA. 
Under the ESA, the term ``take'' means to harass, harm, pursue, hunt, 
shoot, wound, kill, trap, capture, or collect, or to attempt to engage 
in any such conduct (16 U.S.C. 1532(19)). The term ``harm,'' as defined 
in our regulations, includes significant habitat modification or 
degradation that results in death or injury to listed species by 
significantly impairing essential behavioral patterns, including 
breeding, feeding, or sheltering (50 CFR 17.3). The term ``harass'' is 
defined in our regulations as an intentional or negligent act or 
omission which creates the likelihood of injury to wildlife by annoying 
it to such an extent as to significantly disrupt normal behavioral 
patterns, which include, but are not limited to, breeding, feeding, or 
sheltering (50 CFR 17.3). Under specified circumstances, however, we 
may issue permits that authorize take of federally listed species, 
provided the take is incidental to, but not the purpose of, an 
otherwise lawful activity. Regulations governing permits for threatened 
species are at 50 CFR 17.32.
    Under a safe harbor agreement, participating landowners voluntarily 
undertake management activities on their property to enhance, restore, 
or maintain habitat benefiting species listed under the ESA. Safe 
harbor agreements, and the subsequent permits issued to participating 
landowners pursuant to section 10(a)(1)(A) of the ESA, encourage 
private and other non-Federal property owners to implement conservation 
actions for federally listed species by assuring the landowners that 
they will not be subjected to increased property use restrictions as a 
result of their efforts to either attract listed species to their 
property, or to increase the numbers or distribution of listed species 
already on their property. Enrolled landowners may make lawful use of 
the enrolled property during the permit term and may incidentally take 
the listed species named on the permit. Application requirements and 
issuance criteria for permits associated with safe harbor agreements 
are found in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) at 50 CFR 17.22(c) 
and 17.32(c). As provided for in the Service's final Safe Harbor Policy 
(64 FR 32717; June 17, 1999), safe harbor agreements provide assurances 
that allow the property owner to alter or modify their enrolled 
property, even if such alteration or modification results in the 
incidental take of a listed species, to such an extent that the 
property is returned back to the originally agreed upon baseline 
conditions. Private landowners may voluntarily terminate a safe harbor 
agreement at any time, in accordance with 50 CFR 13.26. If this occurs, 
landowners must relinquish the associated incidental take permit 
pursuant to section 10(a)(1)(A) of the ESA.

Safe Harbor Agreement

    The State lands covered under the existing SHA and valid permit 
consist of 76 ac on the Daytona State College campus in Volusia County, 
Florida. The baseline established in 2010 was 1.4 ac of occupied 
Florida scrub-jay habitat. Daytona State College has managed the 
property above baseline and has not proceeded with facility development 
since entering the SHA. Proposed minor changes within the SHA-enrolled 
property include a revision to the master campus facility development 
plan. The revision would not affect the 2010 established baseline of 
1.4 ac of occupied Florida scrub-jay, nor would it affect the SHA 
management actions. Under the modified SHA, the applicant will continue 
to undertake the following habitat maintenance and enhancement actions 
intended to benefit the Florida scrub-jay on the enrolled property: (1) 
Remove sand pine canopy; (2) create open sandy areas through mechanical 
means (including chopping and/or rootraking) or by using herbicides; 
and (3) manage habitat using prescribed fire and/or mechanical means. 
Under comment and review is the request to renew the existing valid 
Permit associated with the SHA that was issued November 15, 2010, under 
ESA, and is in effect until November 15, 2030. The applicant is 
requesting to extend the Permit period for an additional 10 years 
beyond its current expiration date.

National Environmental Policy Act Compliance

    The renewal of the permit is a Federal action that triggers the 
need for compliance with NEPA. The Service has made a preliminary 
determination that the proposed permit renewal is eligible for 
categorical exclusion under NEPA,

[[Page 47142]]

based on the following criteria: (1) Implementation of the SHA would 
result in minor or negligible adverse effects on federally listed, 
proposed, and candidate species and their habitats; (2) implementation 
of the SHA would result in minor or negligible adverse effects on other 
environmental values or resources; and (3) impacts of the SHA, 
considered together with the impacts of other past, present, and 
reasonably foreseeable similarly situated projects, would not result, 
over time, in cumulative adverse effects to environmental values or 
resources which would be considered significant. To make this 
determination, we used our EAS and low-effect screening form, which are 
also available for public review.
