Note: Annually, the data sets representing actual scrub-jay urbanized
territories and actual sightings are updated based on new data that has
been gathered and ground-truthed by United States Fish and Wildlife
Service and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. The
data sets, which have been downloaded into the search engine, are
informational and are designed to approximate where Scrub-jays and
Scrub-jay territories exist. The Parcel Identification Number or the
Address search is not a definitive finding on where scrub-jays may be
present. If your Parcel Identification Number or Address is entered into
the search engine and is documented as being in a known Scrub-jay
territory, per the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, please
contact the United States Fish and Wildlife Service for any possible
mitigation responsibility that maybe warranted, if any. Charlotte County
has no authority to establish mitigation requirements for impacts
related construction within designated Scrub-jay data sets. If the
search does not indicate that your property is within updated data set,
per the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, then the construction
permitting process can move forward without federal delay.

time, per the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, it has been

modify the data sets by adding or removing properties as appropriate to
