This Performance Incentive Award is given to owners in the form of a reduction of up to 5% of their annual assessment for exceeding minimum environmental criteria, and up to an additional 5% reduction for exceeding minimum social criteria. For occupants to lease their lots, the incentive award is in the form of a base rent reduction of up to 6% for exceeding minimum environmental criteria, and up to an additional 6% reduction for exceeding minimum social criteria.
Occupants are subject to a "Non-Compliance Penalty"---a monthly fee equivalent to 5% of the occupant’s proportionate share of the annual assessment.
