Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants; Incidental Take Permit Application; Proposed Low-Effect Habitat Conservation Plan for the Preble's Meadow Jumping Mouse at the Kettle Creek Ranch in El Paso County, Colorado
We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), received a permit application from Vintage Companies and are announcing the availability of a draft low-effect Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP) for review and comment by the public and Federal, Tribal, State, and local governments. The proposed permit would authorize the incidental take of the federally threatened Preble's meadow jumping mouse from Vintage Companies' proposed Kettle Creek Ranch residential development in El Paso County, Colorado.

Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants; Incidental Take Permit Application; Proposed Low-Effect Habitat Conservation Plan and Associated Documents; San Bernardino County, CA
We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), have received an application from City of Rialto (applicant), for a 3-year incidental take permit (permit); the application includes the applicant's proposed habitat conservation plan (HCP), as required by the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (Act). If approved, the permit would authorize incidental take of the endangered Delhi Sands flower-loving fly in the course of routine activities associated with the construction activities associated with the widening of San Bernardino Avenue, Riverside Avenue, and Willow Avenue. We invite public comment on the permit application and proposed HCP, and on our preliminary determination that the HCP qualifies as ``low-effect'' for a categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act. To make this determination, we used our environmental action statement and low-effect screening form, which are also available for review.
