Hardcover. 8 5/8" X 11 1/4". 53pp. Ex-Savannah College of Art and Design library, with associated marks and labels to binding and text block. Brown buckram over boards, with spine lettered in white. Edgewear, bumping to corners, small tear to head of spine, and mild soiling to binding. Binding is sound. Excepting library marks, pages are clean and unmarked. This careful consideration of the San Francisco County Board of Supervisors' Parapet Ordinance, passed 1969, seeks to alert the general public to the nature of the problem between correcting building parapets at risk of becoming hazards during earthquakes and altering the city's visual character, additionally seeking to record what corrections and compromises had occurred prior to publication, to give concerned parties a base of information and list of sources for further information, to give other cities that may be faced with similar ordinances helpful information, and to record a significant cooperative effort between city agentcies, city commissions, professional organizations, business associations, preservation organizations, and other interested individuals. Six holdings in OCLC at this time. Good. Item #2886
