Comments Green Construction Code Bird-friendly Design

Stephen A. Hansen

The Committee of 100 is interested in protecting the environment, wildlife habitat and wildlife, including birds.  The District is on the Atlantic Flyway, a migration route for birds in spring and fall, and is also home to hundreds of bird species.   In the city as a whole, an estimated 120,00 birds collide with glass windows every year. We believe that adding the Project Site Elective, A104.3, Bird collision deterrence, to the Green Building Code furthers protection for birds.
