May I use a barbecue grill on the balcony of my condo or apartment?
You cannot use a charcoal or gas grill on a balcony, deck or any area within 15 feet of a condominium or apartment building that has 3 or more living units. You can use an electric grill or similar appliance provided no open flame is produced.

If you live in a single-family dwelling, duplex or townhouse, no law restricts the use of grills, but it is recommended that you adhere to the above safety provisions for your safety and the safety of your neighbors.
