Document Description
The Project includes the urban development of up to 14,200 acres of Natural Lands or 33,400 acres of Open Lands within the 261, 120-acre Metropolitan Bakersfield Habitat Conservation Plan (MBHCP) area, as defined in Figure 2 of the MB HCP, dated April 1994. The Project as defined in the ITP is specifically conditioned by the MB HCP, associated Implementation/Management Agreement dated August 15, 1994, and a federal incidental take permit pursuant to section 10(a)(1 )(B) of the ESA issued by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service on August 24, 1994. The 14,200 acres of Natural Lands or 33,400 acres of Open Lands that can be developed includes all MBHCP authorized development since 1994; as a result, only a portion of the development acreage contemplated in the 1994 MBHCP remains; as of December 31 , 2012, there were 3,116.67 acres converted from Natural Lands to Urban Development, and 18,405.5 acres converted from Open Land to Urban Development. The ITP specifically authorizes development as contemplated in the MBHCP from the time of issuance of the ITP to ITP expiration in 2022.
