200715400 - Douglas County Multi Species Habitat Conservation Plan, Previously referred to as the Foster Creek Habitat Conservation Plan (FCHCP)
Sponsor: Foster Creek Conservation District
Budgets: FY07: $125,000 | FY08: $125,000 | FY09: $125,000

Final Council recommendation (Nov 2006)
Funding category: Expense
Recommended budgets: FY07: $0 | FY08: $0 | FY09: $0
ISRP final recommendation: Not fundable
The ISRP does not view this as a proposal, but rather an executive summary of a plan. This proposal did not present adequate information to warrant a response. The ISRP wanted to see a justification, objectives, methods, and a monitoring and evaluation of activities that would benefit fish and wildlife. As written, the ISRP found little to no evidence of benefits to fish and wildlife and no evidence that current personnel have qualifications to complete necessary wildlife work. The project needs to more specifically identify how agricultural practices and silviculture will be modified, how wildlife species will be monitored, who will conduct monitoring, when monitoring will occur, and how monitoring information will be evaluated.
