Statement of Basis and Purpose of Proposed Rules
As part of New York City’s Green Infrastructure Program DEP provides incentives to private property owners for implementation of green stormwater management practices (also known as “green infrastructure”) on private property located within the five boroughs of the City. The Green Infrastructure Grant Program (“Program”) was created in 2010 to create a partnership with private property owners in the design and construction of green infrastructure practices. In preparation for the rollout of additional incentive programs, and to ensure that there is no overlap between programs, DEP is proposing to amend its Program rules to specifically incentivize green roof retrofits. Green roof retrofits are an especially important type of stormwater management practice in ultra-urban cities like New York City. The rule amendments would also provide for a more streamlined application submission and design review process for green roof retrofits.
The Rules are authorized by Section 1403 of the Charter of the City of New York and Section 24-501 et seq. of the Administrative Code.
