Document Description
This proposed project involves a minor amendment to the ITP, as amended by Amendments 1, 2 and 3, to extend the deadline to permanently protect the Habit Management (HM) lands from April 6, 2014 to October 6, 2014, and corrects two types in the ITP. No other changes were made to the ITP, as amended by Amendments 1, 2, and 3. The Project will result in impacts to 766 acres of desert tortoise (Gopherus agassizii) and Mohave ground squirrel (Spermophilus mohavensis) habitat including temporary impacts to 92 acres; the Project will permanently remove 674 acres of desert tortoise and Mohave ground squirrel habitat. The project is expected to result in incidental take of desert tortoise and Mohave ground squirrel, which are designated as a threatened species under California Endangered Species Act. The ITP, as amended by Amendments 1, 2, and 3 and Minor Amendments No. 4 authorizes incidental take of species listed under CESA that may occur as a result of Project implementation.
