Regional Habitat Conservation
At SANDAG, we’re committed to protecting our environment. A significant part of our region’s quality of life depends on our environmental health. We believe that protecting our natural resources and reducing urban sprawl are important for today and future generations.
Current regional habitat conservation projects include Natural Community Conservation Planning Program; North County Multiple Habitat Conservation Program; Regional Open Space Strategy; and Sensitive Lands Analysis.
Habitat Conservation Taskforce
Through our Reginal Habitat Conservation Taskforce, SANDAG works closely with representatives from the City of San Diego, County of San Diego, the four SANDAG sub-regions, state and federal wildlife agencies, and several organizations on regional habitat conservation issues, including input on issues related to the implementation of the TransNet Environmental Mitigation Program (EMP). The EMP consists of direct mitigation of planned transportation projects and the regional habitat acquisition, management, and monitoring activities necessary to implement the Multiple Species Conservation Program and the Multiple Habitat Conservation Program.
For more information on the taskforce, please contact Keith Greer, SANDAG Principal Regional Planner, at 619.699.7390 or email@example.com; or Kim Smith, SANDAG Senior Regional Planner, 619.699.6949 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
