Document Description
This proposed project involves the development of 23.19 acres (total acreage onsite is 25.61- acre, consisting of a 22.91- and 2.7-acre parcel) into 137 single-family residential homes and the associated infrastructure to support the residential units including the development of private roads and sidewalks, landscaping, and utilities throughout the Project site. The Project also includes various lots designated for open space and a recreational/pool area comprised of a restroom building, shade structures, and barbeque area. The southern 2.42 acres of the parcel is a part of the Metropolitan Water District (MWD) easement and will not be developed. Amendment 1 provides additional specificity for ongoing monitoring of adjacent habitat and revises time periods related to cat-proof fencing design and installation and security requirements. The Project will result in impacts to 23.27 acres of San Bernardino Kangaroo Rat (Dipodomys merriami parvus) habitat including temporary impacts to 0.08 acres; the Project will permanently remove 23.19 acres San Bernardino Kangaroo Rat habitat. The project is expected to result in incidental take of San Bernardino Kangaroo Rats, which is/are designated as a candidate species under the California Endangered Species Act. The ITP referenced above as issued by CDFW authorizes incidental take of species listed under CESA that may occur as a result of Project implementation.
