BASE CONTRIBUTION TABLE

Property donated and accepted for stewardship by Rondout-Esopus Land Conservancy requires monitoring by approved members of the conservancy. In order to meet the costs of maintaining and enforcing (if necessary) the integrity of the easement agreements, the grantor of each easement is requested to contribute a one-time tax-deductible sum to RELC, which will be distributed to a Stewardship Fund and Legal Defense Fund. The grantor's contribution shall coincide with the completed signing of the easement agreement.

The guidelines for contributions are determined primarily by size of acreage and number of dwelling or proposed dwellings as provided for in the RELC easement agreement.
