Other organizations, such as county planning and zoning agencies and private consulting firms, also frequently request a review of their project for potential impacts to rare species. Discovering the possibility for potential impacts early in the planning process is extremely important. It is usually much easier and less expensive to make any necessary changes to avoid negative impacts early in the planning process than after project development is under way.
If you are interested in submitting an environmental review request, please send a cover letter describing the entire project and the full nature of your request along with a map with the project location and site boundaries clearly delineated. Examples of map sources include a USGS 7.5 minute topographic quadrangle, ADC book map, Mapquest image, etc. Send your request to:
