Improve the quality of urban ecosystems in Dallas through the sustainable design, creation and planting of urban habitats.
The City will evaluate locations for potential wildlife corridors to create contiguous habitats across the city. A comprehensive assessment will be conducted to identify potential wildlife corridors. The study will also identify policies and implementation mechanisms for creating these corridors (for example through the Comprehensive Plan).
In addition, education programs will be developed on creating urban habitats, pollinator gardens and bee keeping. Guidance for developers will be provided on urban design-based strategies for the creation of bird-friendly developments, buildings, and structures particularly in downtown.
