• Emeryville Considers Bird-Safe Regs

  • Emeryville is crafting new bird-safe building standards for new multi-story development. BIA|Bay Area has requested that the city will allow builders to propose an alternative compliance method with the recommendation of a qualified biologist and refrain from mandating the use of specific branded products. The city’s Planning Commission held a study session on Sept. 26, 2019. The ordinance is likely to require special window glass treatments that reduce bird collisions or other methods such as bird netting and limits on outdoor lighting. Staff will return at a later date with a draft ordinance. Click HERE to view the staff report. For questions or comments, contact BIA’s Lisa Vorderbrueggen at lvorderbrueggen@biabayarea.org.
