Responding to this challenge, in 1999, the Riverside County Board of Supervisors and the Riverside County Transportation Commission (RCTC) initiated a comprehensive regional-planning effort called the Riverside County Integrated Project (RCIP). A key element of the RCIP is the Multiple Species Habitat Conservation Plan (MSHCP), a plan to conserve half a million acres of species habitat in the western part of the county. S.
