We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), have received an application from HPH Properties, L.P. (applicant), for a renewal of incidental take permit TE189382-1 under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (Act). The applicant has requested a renewal that will extend permit expiration by 6 years from the date the permit is reissued. The applicant has agreed to follow all of the existing low-effect habitat conservation plan (HCP) conditions. If renewed, no additional take will be authorized. The permit would authorize take of the federally endangered Ohlone tiger beetle (Cicindela ohlone), incidental to otherwise lawful activities associated with the Santa Cruz Gardens Unit 12 residential development.
