Is the ego of artists more important than the lives of Burrowing Owls? That question will come before the Parks, Recreation and Waterfront Commission tomorrow evening (Wednesday Sept. 14) in a 7 pm Zoom meeting: https://us06web.zoom.us/j/89264197181 A member of the Civic Arts Commission is scheduled to make a case why the design of the existing “Art Deco” fence around the Burrowing Owl Sanctuary in the northeast corner of the park should be retained. That fence is 32 inches high and the gap between the top two cables is 9 inches. Loose dogs of all sizes can and do jump over it or slip through it and invade the Burrowing Owls’ habitat. The artists who designed this project back in 2010-2011 are aware that the fence is unsafe, that owls have been killed and injured, but they value the artistic design — their design — more highly than the safety of these birds. We who love these birds need to send a message. I plan to attend this meeting via Zoom and ask you to join me if you can: Wednesday 7 pm https://us06web.zoom.us/j/89264197181
