The security bond or instrument obtained by the Association shall replace and supersede Declarant’s.
  5. Although the transfer of the permits and the obligations and liabilities associated with the permitted wetlands is effective through this declaration, the Arbor Ridge Homeowners Association agrees to enter into a written understanding which has the effect of transferring the permit, and all obligations and liabilities imposed by the terms and conditions of the permits and by law, from the Declarant to the Association. The parties to any such written agreement will be the Declarant and the Association and may include those governing authorities with jurisdiction over the herein described wetlands, as well as any entity that has contracted to perform maintenance and monitoring services on said wetlands.

  8. All costs of maintenance, repair and replacement of commonly owned improvements in common property and easements, shall be borne by the lot owners equally as prorated against the total number of lots contained in all phases of Arbor Ridge P.U.D. as amended. Said costs shall be assessed annually by the Association based upon the number of lots which are at that point included in the Homeowners Association, unless a special assessment is necessary.
  9. Tract “S” shall be owned and maintained by Declarant as open space. It shall be subject to a public pedestrian and bicycle easement over its entirety.
