Document Description
This proposed Project involves the construction of a residential development project. The Project as authorized in the ITP will result in permanent impacts to San Joaquin kit fox (SJKF) (vulpes macrotis mutica), and San Joaquin antelope squirrel (SJAS) (Ammospermophilus nelsoni) habitat. The Project is expected to result in incidental take of SJKF and SJAS which are designated threatened under CESA. The ITP referenced above as issued by CDFW authorizes incidental take of species listed under CSEA that may occur as a result of Project implementation. Major Amendment No. 1 (Amendment) contains administrative changes including an expiration date extension; removal of the "rails-to-trails" parkway construction as a covered activity; makes changes to the Project Description consistent with Project reconfiguration incorporating tract and concomitant infrastructure revisions and acreage adjustments; enhances project buildout flexibility by incorporating discrete construction, security fund, and compensatory mitigation phasing and the tracking and reporting of these elements; amends the configuration and locations of the designated remainders "A", "B", and "C" within the Project parcel that comprise the Conservation Easement site; removes the requirement to conduct a study to monitor relocated San Joaquin antelope squirrels; increases the routine and ongoing reporting requirement from 90-day reporting to monthly compliance reporting; and revises the endowment fund language to be consistent with changes in Government Code that have occurred since the issuance of the ITP. As amended, development of the Project site will result in permanent loss of 90.33 acres (6.43 acres less than the originally ground-disturbing impacts without a decrease of compensatory mitigation.
