Section 7

 

7.4   Allocation of Association Assessment. The Association Assessment shall be allocated as follows:

 

(a)       The Association Assessment for each Owner shall vary according to the type of property and the status of improve­ment to that property and shall be based on the following ratios:

Residential Dwelling Unit

-  2.0

Residential Unimproved Lot

-  1.0

Timesharing Unit Week

-    .5

Campground Interest

- 1.0

Commercial Unimproved Lot

- 2.0 per $35,000 of assessed property value. (As assessed by Hazleton Area School District. Assessed value equals 35% of market value)

Commercial Improved Lot

- 4.0 per $35,000 of assessed property value. (As assessed by Hazleton Area School District. Assessed value equals 35% of market value)

 

Revisions to the above listed categories and ratios or additional categories and the ratio for such categories may be unilaterally established by the Declarant at any time prior to the Turnover Date by recording an amendment to this Declaration pursuant to Section 21.4 hereof. After the Turnover Date, the Association may only revise the above listed categories and ratios or establish additional categories and ratios by recording an amendment to this Declaration pursuant to Section 21.3 hereof.

 

(b)   The formula used to calculate the Association Assessment is as follows:           

 

Association Assessment per Residential Unimproved Lot  = the following fraction:           

 

[Numerator)               (Total Estimated Common Expenses for ensuing year) - ($120 x A)

__________________________________________________________________________________

 

(Denominator)        (2.00 x B) + (1.0 x C) + (.5 x D) + (1.0 x E) + (2.0 x F) + (4.0 x G).

 

A = The number of Charter Members (defined in subparagraph 7.4© below)

B = (Total number of Residential Dwelling Units minus (The number of Residential Dwelling Units Constructed on Charter Member lots now owned by Charter Members + the number at Residential Dwelling Units constructed on Exhibit D Members (defined in subparagraph 7.4(6) below) lots now owned by Exhibit D Members)

C = [Total number at Residential Unimproved Lots minus the number of residential Unimproved Lots now owned by Charter Members

D = The number of Sold Timeshare Weeks

E = The number of Sold Campground Interests

F = The number of Commercial Unimproved Lots

G = The number of Commercial Improved Lots

x = “multiplied by”

However, all such reduced assessments shall remain in the same ratio as set forth above and no one category shall be reduced proportionately more than another.

 

            (c) Notwithstanding the above, those persons listed on Exhibit C hereto, which is incorporated herein by reference, who originally purchased lots from Eastern Pennsylvania Marine Properties, Inc., and who still own said lot or lots (“Charter members”), will pay $10.00 per lot per month as the Association Assessment for road maintenance, security, recreational facilities and maintenance.
