The MSHCP will serve as a habitat conservation plan pursuant to Section 10(a)(1)(B) of the Federal Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended, as well as a Natural Community Conservation Plan under the Natural Community Conservation Plan Act. The MSHCP will be used to allow, through the local land use planning process, the "Take" of the plant and animal species identified in the Plan.
