The MBHCP was developed in conjunction with the local building industry to facilitate the land use permit issuance process. In addition, the program provides the following benefits:

  • Provides compliance with State and federal endangered species laws.
  • Provides for candidate species that have yet to be listed.
  • Avoids expensive piecemeal biological reports and project-by-project mitigation.
  • Provides predictable mitigation for project applicants.
  • Coordinates State and federal wildlife agency mitigation requirements.
