Caltrans 6 (Fresno)
(California Department of Transportation, District 6)
California Tiger Salamader Mitigation Project
NOE - Notice of Exemption
The purpose of this proposal is to develop and obtain approval from the USFWWS and the CDFW to create a mitigation bank for the California Tiger Salamander that may be used for future Caltrans projects located in the Central Region. The location of the future mitigation bank site is unknown at this time. Once the site is located and purchased, appropriate environmental clearance will be obtained.
The CE is required as an attachment to the project report which will be used to obtain SHOPP funding for a mitigation site. Class 15306 was selected for this project because the funding will be used to write a RFP for the mitigation bank selection and purchase.
