Title: Benton County’s Prairie Species Habitat Conservation Plan: Signposts for the future of species-based land-use regulation?
Author: Novick, Adam
Abstract: Does Benton County's recently approved Habitat Conservation Plan address concern that species-based land-use regulation (whether prohibitions or mitigation requirements) might be counterproductive to the survival of maintenance-dependent species on non-federal land? I suggest that despite significant limitations, the plan gives this concern unprecedented recognition, including a promise of some prosecutorial discretion and a recommendation to refine rules implementing the US Endangered Species Act. I discuss what might help the US Fish and Wildlife Service and others do more to address this concern.
