The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is asking for public comment on a draft for a habitat conservation program that balances community development and wildlife protection in San Luis Obispo County.

The plan is designed to conserve rare plants and animals in Los Osos. The draft plan describes measures that avoid or offset the effects of future infrastructure changes on wildlife. The approaches will help conserve and protect the endangered Morro shoulderband snail, Morro Bay kangaroo rat, Indian Knob mountain balm and Morro manzanita.

The document can beviewed here. People can also leave comments on the Federal Register site.

Comments can be submitted until Nov. 18.
