Does this project impact any endangered species?

The Commonwealth’s Natural Heritage and Endangered Species Program (NHESP) determined the project will result in a take of habitat for six species of butterflies and moths. SunPower is currently working through the MESA/ MEPA permitting process with the support of the Town of Nantucket and Wannacomet Water Company. Collaboratively, a conservation management plan to mitigate the loss of habitat at 1 Milestone Road is being proposed to occur at 211 Cliff Rd. This strategy would place 211 Cliff Rd. under a conservation restrictin and secures open space for a minimum of 20 years.
