Commission Agenda Item No. 9
Action
Designation of TPWD Representatives to the
Biological Advisory Team and the Citizens Advisory
Committee of the Barton Springs / Edwards Aquifer
Conservation District Regional Habitat
Conservation Plan
May 2005

I. Executive Summary: This item would designate Dr. Andy Price as the TPWD representative to the Biological Advisory Team of the Barton Springs/Edwards Aquifer Conservation District Regional Habitat Conservation Plan (BSEARHCP) and would designate Dr. Duane Schlitter as the TPWD representative on the Citizens Advisory Committee of the BSEARHCP.

II. Discussion: The Barton Springs/Edwards Aquifer Conservation District is attempting to develop the BSEARHCP consistent with the provisions of Parks and Wildlife Code chapter 83, subchapter B, Habitat Protection by Political Subdivisions. Compliance with chapter 83 requires the formation of a Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC). Parks and Wildlife Code §83.016 requires the TPW Commission to appoint a representative to the CAC. TPWD staff recommends Dr. Duane Schlitter of the Wildlife Division to be the TPWD representative on the CAC.

Compliance with chapter 83 also requires formation of a Biological Advisory Team (BAT), and requires the TPW Commission to appoint a TPWD representative to the BAT who serves as its presiding officer. TPWD staff recommends Dr. Andy Price of the Wildlife Division to be the TPWD representative on the BAT and its presiding officer.

III. Recommendation: The staff recommends the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission adopt the following motion:

"The Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission adopts by resolution the appointment of Dr. Andy Price of the Wildlife Division to be TPWD’s representative on the BSEARHCP Biological Advisory Team and its presiding officer and the appointment of Dr. Duane Schlitter of the Wildlife Division to be TPWD’s representative on the BSEARHCP Citizens Advisory Committee."
