Document Description
The project as approved by the Department of Fish and Game consists of the MSAA and ITPs identified above, which adress various conservation, management and development activities affecting or generally realted to fish and wildlife resources subject to the regulatory authority of the Department, including natural resources subject to the California Endangered Species Act (CESA) and Fish and Game Code section 1600 et. seq. For purposes of CESA, the ITPs authorize incidental take of San Fernando Valley spineflower, western yellow-billed cuckoo, southwestern willow flycatcher, and least Bell's vireo, all in connection with otherwise lawful development activities within the Project area. The ITPs and MSAA, in this respect, will facilitate build-out of the NRSP and other properties owned by the project proponent and permittee, the Newhall Land and Farming Company (Newhall), including the Valencia Commerce Center (VCC) and the Entrada planning area. The project approved by DFG for purposes of the ITPs and MSAA is modified compared to the project as originally proposed by Newhall, including increased avoidance of riparian resources along the Santa Clara River, reduced impacts to the Middle Canyon Spring complex, additional spineflower preserve acreage, and larger riparian corridors within the five major tributaries within the NRSP area. In approving the project and the ITPs specifically, the DFG Director approved Newhall's applications and issued the ITPs.
