This bulletin provides guidance to the code, zoning, and filing requirements for rooftops or terraces that are to be occupied, including those for passive recreation purposes, in new buildings and existing buildings. Passive recreation spaces on rooftops and terraces are typically outdoor spaces of the building, such as rooftop gardens or green roofs. They are provided as amenities for the passive enjoyment of the occupants of the building and typically do not involve excessive noise, vibration, and other nuisances.
