Document Description
Note: Review Per Lead The VPHCP is a conservation plan for vernal pools and seven threatened and endangered vernal pool species that do not currently have federal coverage under the City of San Diego's Multiple Species conservation program subarea plan. The VPHCP would be compatible with, and would expand upon, the City's existing MSCP SAP to conserve additional lands with vernal pools that are occupied with threatened and endangered vernal pool species. The VPHCP plan area encompasses 206,124 acres. One fully implemented, the VPHCP would expand the city's existing multi habitat planning area by adding approximately 275 acres of lands with valuable vernal pools resources. The VPHCP would conserve an additional eight vernal pool complexes and additional 226 pools (approximately 9% more), totaling 2.8 acres of basin area, over what is currently conserved. Once adopted, vernal pool lands within the MHPA would be subject to the provisions of the VPHCP, in addition to the City's MSCP SAP and other existing land use and biological resource plans, policies, and regulations.
