Document Description
The City of Bakersfield, as the Lead Agency has determined in accordance with CEQA that preparation of an EIR is required for the Bakersfield Habitat Conservation Plan (Plan). The Plan is intended to serve a specified permit area generally within Metropolitan Bakersfield as a habitat conservation plan (HCP) pursuant to the federal Endangered Species Act (ESA) and is designed to streamline and coordinate existing processes for review and permitting of public and private activities that potentially affect protected plant and animal species and to provide greater certainty on mitigation requirements. Covered species are those species addressed in the Plan for which conservation actions will be implemented and for which the Permit Applicants will seek incidental take authorization for a period of 30 years. The Plan includes 13 listed and non-listed species composed of seven animal species and six plant species. These covered species are expected to be named on the ESA permit. In exchange, the Plan will provide long-term conservation and management of these species.
