Absolute power is mine!

Well, the title to this post may be slightly exaggerated - I've been named a member of the Stakeholder Group for the Santa Clara Valley Habitat Conservation Plan/Natural Community Conservation Plan (HCP/NCCP), a position that might fall slightly short of Absolute Power Over the Universe.

Still, I hope to help influence the development of the HCP, which is intended to protect endangered species from harm related to development. A good HCP could actually benefit species, while a bad one will trade away legal protection for meaningless mitigation. We've been following this process closely over the years, and being a Stakeholder will give us our best shot at getting a good HCP.
