Receipt of an Application for an Incidental Take Permit for Construction of a Single-Family Home in Brevard County, FL
Steven J. Therrien (Applicant) requests an incidental take permit (ITP) pursuant to section 10(a)(1)(B) of the Endangered Species Act of 1973 (U.S.C. 1531 et seq.), as amended (Act). The Applicant anticipates taking about 0.24 acre of Florida scrub-jay (Aphelocoma coerulescens) (scrub-jay) foraging, sheltering, and possibly nesting habitat incidental to lot preparation for the construction of a single- family home and supporting infrastructure in Brevard County, Florida (Project). The destruction of 0.24 acre of foraging, sheltering, and possibly nesting habitat is expected to result in the take of one family of scrub-jays. The Applicant's Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP) describes the mitigation and minimization measures proposed to address the effects of the Project to the Florida scrub-jay. These measures are outlined in the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section below. We have determined that the Applicant's proposal, including the proposed mitigation and minimization measures, will individually and cumulatively have a minor or negligible effect on the species covered in the HCP. Therefore, the ITP is a ``low-effect'' project and qualifies as a categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), as provided by the Department of Interior Manual (516 DM 2, Appendix 1 and 516 DM 6, Appendix 1). We announce the availability of the HCP for the incidental take application. Copies of the HCP may be obtained by making a request to the Regional Office (see ADDRESSES). Requests must be in writing to be processed. This notice is provided pursuant to section 10 of the Endangered Species Act and NEPA regulations (40 CFR 1506.6).
Proposed Low-Effect Habitat Conservation Plan for the Monument Creek Interceptor Tie-In Along Jackson Creek, El Paso County, CO
This notice advises the public that Triview Metropolitan District and Forest Lakes Metropolitan District (Applicant) have applied to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) for an incidental take permit pursuant to section 10(a)(1)(B) of the Endangered Species Act (ESA) of 1973, as amended. The proposed permit would authorize the incidental take of the Preble's meadow jumping mouse, Zapus hudsonius preblei (Preble's), federally listed as threatened, through loss and modification of habitat it periodically uses for foraging, breeding and/or hibernation, associated with construction of a new sanitary sewer line extension connecting to an existing sewer line, a nonpotable water reuse line, a secondary sewer line, and a new dirt access road into the Upper Monument Creek Wastewater Treatment Facility (Facility) on Jackson Creek, El Paso County, Colorado. The duration of the permit would be 20 years from the date of issuance. We announce the receipt of the Applicant's incidental take permit application, which includes a Low-Effect Habitat Conservation Plan (LEHCP) for Preble's on Jackson Creek within the Facility. The LEHCP fully describes the proposed project and the measures the Applicant would undertake to minimize and mitigate project impacts to Preble's. We are requesting comments on the permit application and on the preliminary determination that the LEHCP is eligible for a categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, as amended. The basis for this determination is discussed in the LEHCP and associated Low-Effect Screening Form, which are available for public review.
