A Local Law to amend the New York city administrative code, in relation to requiring that the roofs of city-owned buildings be partially covered in source control measures

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

                     Section 1. Chapter 2 of title 4 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new section 4-211 to read as follows:

                     § 4-211 Installation of source control measures. The commissioner shall cause to be installed on the roofs of all real property owned by the city, a green roof system, as defined in section BC 1502 of the building code, or a detention system, as defined in section PC 202 of the plumbing code, or a combination of both. Such green roof system or detention system, or combination thereof, shall cover at least 50 percent of available roof top space, excluding any space required to be kept open or unobstructed by the fire code or any space occupied by mechanical equipment, and shall be designed and installed in accordance with chapter 15 of the building code.

§ 2. This local law takes effect 180 days after it becomes law; provided, however, that the commissioner of citywide administrative services may take all actions necessary for its implementation, including the promulgation of rules, before such date.
