Document Description
The Project involves the construction and operation of 26 wind turbines and associated infrastructure on approx. 1,350 acres. This proposed project involves a minor amendment to the ITP referenced above to extend the expiration date of the ITP and the deadline to permanently protect the Habitat Management (HM) Lands for 12 months, from Jan. 1, 2016 to Jan. 1, 2017. The ITP as amended authorizes take of Bakersfield cactus (Opuntia basilarus var. treleasei), a species designated as endangered under CESA. The ITP and Minor Amendments No. 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 (ITP, as amended) as issued by CDFW authorizes incidental take of species listed under CESA that may occur as a result of Project implementation. CDFW issued the ITP, as amended, as a responsible agency under the CEQA, relying on mitigated negative declarations prepared for the Project as approved by the lead agency, Kern County.
