San Francisco considers bird-safe building standards

Earlier this month, the San Francisco Planning Department released the 38-page draft of "Standards for Bird-Safe Buildings," which is available for public comment through the end of the year. You can view it here before submitting comments to the Planning Commissioners via the commission secretary and the manager of legislative affairs.

The draft's acknowledgments included a hat tip to the cities of New York, Toronto and Chicago, whose guidelines informed the planning department's efforts. Golden Gate Audubon Society and American Bird Conservancy also played key roles in the draft's creation.

The easy-to-read document includes many photographs and explanatory captions, making the information very accessible. Consider reading it from an educational perspective.

The San Francisco Planning Commission might vote on the standards in early 2011, and you can keep tabs on the process.
