South Sacramento Habitat Conservation Plan

NOD - Notice of Determination
Document Description
The Project is a multi-jurisdictional, multi-species, 50-year HCP implementation that will cover 28 native species, (seven of which are State listed species) through minimizing and mitigating impacts on those species and their habitats. The Project will allow for the development of 67,618-acres for urban development within the Urban Development Area (UDA) included within the Plan Area. The UDA is defined as all lands within the Sacramento County Urban Services Boundary that are also within the Plan Area (this includes lands within the Rancho Cordova city limits that are within the Plan Area); and all lands within Galt’s city limits and within the City of Galt’s sphere of influence. The USB was defined by Sacramento County as the maximum boundary where they are willing to provide future urban services, such as sanitary sewer and water supply. The scope of work outside of the UDA is limited to infrastructure and transportation projects. CDFW has initiated this first minor amendment to the ITP to update the procedures in the ITP, specifically in Condition of Approval 9.6 of the ITP which describes the approval process for entities proposed to hold conservation easements under the SSHCP and clarifies that all conservation easements will follow the template attached to the SSHCP as Appendix D.
