BSEACD postpones Habitat Conservation Plan vote

Friday, September 12, 2014 by Alex Dropkin

The Barton Springs Edwards Aquifer Conservation District delayed its vote on approval of a draft habitat conservation plan for two additional weeks Thursday night. Board members made the move in response to comments during a public hearing. The postponement will give the district’s staff time to address concerns and the opportunity to make changes to the draft. Save Our Springs Alliance submitted a letter Thursday urging the delay. The alliance was concerned about the draft’s distinction between lethal and nonlethal take. Laurie Dries, of the Habitat Conservation Plan Management Advisory Committee, expressed similar concerns.
