   Evanston skies will be safer for the approximately 280 species of resident and migratory birds that visit the city each year following the City Council’s adoption of a new Bird - Friendly Building Design ordinance .
   Approved unanimously on September 12 , the ordinance establishes bird safe standards for new development projects and alterations of existing buildings to help reduce bird collisions and death . The City’s Building & Inspection Services Division , Office of Sustainability and Bird - Friendly Evanston wo......rked together to develop the ordinance as well as a 
   Bird - Friendly Building Design Guide
    , which now serves as the standard for bird - friendly design in Evanston .
   "Migratory birds are a critical part of a healthy environment both locally and globally , " said Mayor Daniel Biss . "I ' m grateful to Bird - Friendly Evanston and our City staff for developing these important design standards , which will reduce aerial hazards and support a safe journey for the millions of native and migratory birds that fly through Evanston and the greater Chicago area each and every year . ”
   Evanston and the Chicago area serve as a vital corridor for migratory birds every spring and fall season , with light pollution and building components posing a significant hazard . The American Bird Conservancy estimates that collisions may kill up to one billion birds a year in the United States .
   "This is a momentous event for birds in the Chicago area , and will make the flyway safer for birds crossing our skies . Thank you to the developers who have worked with us for years paving the way for this , and to Evanston City staff , the mayor and city council for making this happen , " said Leslie Shad of Bird - Friendly Evanston . “We stand ready for anyone needing help making their buildings bird - friendly . ”
   Evanston’s Bird - Friendly Building Design Ordinance applies to all planned developments , new commercial , multifamily and industrial construction projects and renovation projects of existing buildings that include the replacement of 100 percent of the exterior glazing .
