As required by a settlement in a recent law suit, the Altamont Pass area will be undergoing an HCP planning effort for wind projects.  This planning effort has been attended by Heath Bartosh, Rare Plants Committee Chair of East Bay CNPS.   Our comments recommend additional no-take plant species and more of a concentration on flora throughout this planning process.
