We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), make available the draft environmental assessment and habitat conservation plan for development of a 724-acre property in Bexar County, Texas. The Davis McCrary Property Trust has applied to the Service for an incidental take permit (ITP) under the Endangered Species Act. The requested ITP would authorize incidental take of the federally endangered golden-cheeked warbler that could result from activities associated with otherwise lawful activities, including commercial and residential development on the property as a result of vegetation clearing, earth-moving activities, and construction of structures.
