This project is a request by the City of Colton for a 30-year permit from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service that would authorize take of the Delhi Sands flower-loving fly (DSF) incidental to activities described in the City proposed 416.3-acre West Valley HCP area, which contain habitat of varying suitability, as occupied by DSF. The permit, if issued, would authorize incidental take of the DSF associated with implementation of covered activities (urban uses) on approximately 79.4 acres, and with proposed habitat restoration and management of approximately 50.4 acres of on-site conservation areas, located in the City of Colton, north of I-10. The West Valley HCP also covers an approximately 5.8 acre portion Slover Ave. south of I-10 and west of Pepper Avenue, outside of the West Valley Specific Plan, but to be set aside for conservation of DSF habitat.
