(d) Any person who brings an action to secure or protect the rights of natural communities or ecosystems within the City of Pittsburgh shall bring that action in the name of the natural community or ecosystem in a court of competent jurisdiction. Damages shall be measured by the cost of restoring the natural community or ecosystem to its pre-damaged state, and shall be paid to the City of Pittsburgh or other applicable governmental entity, to be used exclusively for the full and complete restoration of the natural community or ecosystem.
 
I do hereby certify that the foregoing resolution duly engrossed and certified, was delivered by me to the Mayor for his approval or disapproval and that the Mayor failed to approve or disapprove the same, whereupon it became a law without his approval under the provisions of the Act of Assembly in such case made and provided.
