Decision Process for "No Effect" Determinations


Projects within a Develped Area - Step 4


Step 4: "No Effect" Determination and Documentation


Your project will have "no effect" on federally listed species. A "No Effect" determination is appropriate because your project is:

  • within a Developed Area (an area that is already paved or supports structures and the only vegetation is limited to frequently mowed grass or conventional landscaping), and
  • is not within or adjacent to any unlandscaped areas that support native vegetation (trees, shrubs, or grasses).

Since your project is not within suitable habitat for listed species, no listed species or designated critical habitat is anticipated to be directly or indirectly affected by this action.


To document your section 7 review and "no effect" determination, we recommend that you print this page (go to File<Print Preview), fill-in the project name and date, attach your species list, and file in your administrative record.
