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.
