The 2017 San Joaquin County Multi-Species Habitat Conservation and Open Space Plan (SJMSCP) Annual Report is provided to meet the annual reporting requirement that is established in Section 5.9.1 of the SJMSCP. The intent of the Annual Report is to focus on the acreage, type, and location of open space use converted to non-open space use, and the accounting of preserve acres acquired pursuant to the SJMSCP.
The Annual Report is comprised of four main sections: Conversions (Development), Conservation (Preserves), Funding, and SJMSCP Implementation. The Conversions (Development) section provides detailed information for projects that have participated in the SJMSCP. Such information includes habitat conversion type, impacts to SJMSCP Covered Species, and habitat mitigation requirements. The Conservation section will highlight preserve acquisitions in 2016 and provides information regarding the preserve jumpstart requirements. The Funding section details the revenues and expenditures for the reporting period. The SJMSCP Implementation section provides information regarding the overall implementation of the SJMSCP. The document covers activities from January 1, 2017 to December 31, 2017.
The SJCOG, Inc. Board approved the release of the final draft to the permitting agencies at their March 22, 2018 meeting. Staff expects a joint comment response from USFWS and CDFW in June or July 2018.
