South of Tioga Mixed Use Project Habitat Conservation Plan and Permitting

EMC Planning Group assisted Sand City with biological resource assessments for a redevelopment project adjacent to sand dune habitat. The habitat was home to protected Monterey spineflower and Monterey gilia, and buckwheat plants that provide habitat for Smiths blue butterfly. EMC Planning Group consulted with the United States Fish and Wildlife Service and California Department of Fish and Wildlife, and prepared a Habitat Conservation Plan for the open space areas. Incidental take permits were obtained from both agencies.
