I. Executive Summary: This item would designate Mike Quinn as the TPWD representative to the Biological Advisory Team of the Comal County Habitat Conservation Plan (CCHCP), and would designate Terry Turney as the TPWD representative on the Citizens Advisory Committee of the CCHCP.

II. Discussion: Comal County is attempting to develop the CCHCP 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 Terry Turney 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 Mike Quinn of the Wildlife Division to be the TPWD representative and presiding officer on the BAT.

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

"The Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission adopts by resolution (Exhibit A) the appointment of Mike Quinn of the Wildlife Division to be TPWD's representative on the CCHCP Biological Advisory Team, and the appointment of Terry Turney of the Wildlife Division to be TPWD's representative on the CCHCP Citizens Advisory Committee."
