Multiple Species Habitat Conservation Plan (MSHCP)
The Multi-Species Habitat Conservation Plan (MSHCP) was established in March of 2004. The plan encompasses 1.2 million acres in the western Riverside County and is designated to protect 146 species. The process relies on 2 differing categories of land: those within a criteria cell and those who are not within criteria cells.
Some of the benefits of MSHCP include:
Certainty of the development process
Compliance with MSHCP will provide CEQA mitigation for covered species for private and public projects.
