The project would include the conservation of the vernal pool resources within the existing City of San Diego Multi-Habitat Planning Area and conserved lands plus additional core lands containting the seven focal species (San Diego fairy shrimp, Riverside fairy shrimp, San Diego button celery, spreading navarretia, San Diego mesa mint, California Orcutt grass, and Otay mesa mint) and associated vernal pool habitat. This proposal would provide a comprehensive approach to the protection and management of the vernal pool preserve areas. The vernal pool preserve areas would be identified based on the analysis to be provided in the project's technical white papers including: Focal Species Status, Assessment of the Conservation of the Seven Focal Species, Development of Adaptive Management Strategy, Development of Monitoring Strategy, Property Analysis Record (PAR), Recommendatins for Conditions of Coverage, Conservation Analysis, and Preserve Management Funding Mechanisms. The project would include adoption of the Vernal Pool Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP), Implementing Agreement, a Vernal Pool Management Plan, a funding strategy, specific conditions of coverage for the seven focal species, amendments to the City's General Plan, Community Plans, and the Land Development Code (LDC)/Environmentally Sensitive Lands (ESL) Ordinance and Land Development Manual/Biology Guidelines.
