(i)Any building erected on the premises shall be designed by a licensed architect as may be required by applicable regulations.

d.On-site Lighting. The objective of on-site lighting is to light pedestrian circulation, buildings or parking for decorative or security reasons. Lighting shall be designed to avoid or minimize light diffusion to adjoining property where negative impacts may be created.

ARTICLE III

4.1.Water and Sewer Systems. Crown West shall not be responsible for installation or maintenance of drainage systems or water or sewer lines on Owner's property. Installation of fire hydrants and service lines or similar facilities, and installation of water and sewer lines on Owner's property shall be the responsibility of the Owner of the property.

4.2.Facilities Easements. Facilities Easements for the installation and maintenance of utility lines and the private water and sewer systems serving the Property are for the benefit of the Property. Declarant reserves for itself, utility providers and governmental entities, the right at any reasonable time to enter upon the Owner's property for the purpose of locating, relocating, installing, constructing, maintaining or otherwise dealing with Facilities located within easements or future easements to be granted, including utility lines, water and sewer lines, now located or to be located in, on, over, under or across the Owner's property.

4.3.Cost of Operation and Maintenance. Crown West presently operates and maintains the private sewer system and private water system that serve the Spokane Business and Industrial Park and will serve the North Park and the Property, the cost of which shall be borne by all users, pro rata. Crown West shall have full authority to establish and determine the amount of assessments, such determination to be based on Crown West's best bona fide estimate of the costs incurred with the operation and maintenance of the Facilities serving the Property. Sewer rates and assessments shall be based upon the estimated expenses of operating similar sewer facilities by the City of Spokane. Water rates and assessments shall be as permitted by the Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission. Owners of the Property shall not be assessed by Crown West for assessments paid by Owners of the Property directly to third parties, such as General Facility Charges that may be charged by Spokane County in order to connect to the Crown West sewer line, except to the extent that Crown West may be required to pay the assessment on behalf of any Owner(s) of the Property or any portion thereof.

4.4Calculation. Assessments charged by Crown West for operation and maintenance of the private sewer system and private water system shall be computed based upon the ratio of gross annual metered water usage of the Property, compared to the total annual metered water usage of all users of the system. Crown West will notify the Owner of the Property of any regular or special assessment, which shall be due and payable in full thirty (30) days after Crown West provides notice of the assessment to the Owner of the Property. Any such assessment by Declarant shall include Declarant's computation of the assessment. The Owner of the Property may, at Owner's expense, audit the books of Declarant regarding any assessed amount.

5.2.Unpaid assessments shall constitute a lien against an Owner's property and may be enforced by filing the assessment as a lien by recording notice thereof with the Spokane County Auditor and enforced by foreclosure action in Spokane County Superior Court, following the same procedure as is set forth for the foreclosure of liens for the furnishing of labor and materials. The prevailing party shall be entitled to recover their costs and reasonable attorney's fees in any enforcement action. In addition, Crown West shall have the right to suspend access to any water and sewer utilities it supplies as a consequence of Owner's failure to pay charges and assessments related thereto. Prior to the initiation of any enforcement proceeding or other remedy, or suspension of water or sewer utilities, Crown West shall provide thirty (30) days written notice to the offending party specifying the alleged default. During this notice period, the offending party is permitted to cure the default alleged in the written notice. If the default alleged is not cured within the notice period, then Crown West may invoke any of the enforcement proceedings or remedies provided for in this Declaration or otherwise available by law.

ARTICLE VI
Environmental Covenants

6.1. Hazardous Substances. Owners shall not engage in or allow the generation, use, manufacture, treatment, transportation, storage or disposal of any hazardous substance in, on, under or adjacent to their real property that in any way is prohibited by applicable federal, state and local laws, regulations and orders.

Owners shall not engage in or allow the unlawful release (from underground tanks or otherwise) of any hazardous substance in, on, under or adjacent to Owner's real property (including air, surface water and ground water on, in, under or adjacent to the real property). Owner shall at all times be in compliance with all applicable law (and shall cause its employees, agents and contractors to be) with respect to the real property or any hazardous substance and shall handle all hazardous substances in compliance with good industry standards and management practices. As used in this Declaration, the term "hazardous substance" shall mean any substance, chemical or waste, including any petroleum products or radioactive substances, that is now or shall hereafter be listed, defined or regulated as hazardous, toxic or dangerous under any applicable laws. As used in this Declaration, "applicable law" shall mean any federal, state, or local laws, ordinances, rules, regulations and requirements now or hereafter enacted (including consent decrees and administrative orders) relating to the generation, use, manufacture, treatment, transportation, storage, disposal, or release of any hazardous substance.

Owner shall promptly notify Crown West and adjacent real property Owners, in writing, if Owner has or acquires notice or knowledge that any hazardous substance has been or is threatened to be unlawfully released, discharged or disposed of, on, in, under or from the real property. Owner shall immediately take such action as is necessary to detain the spread of and remove, to the satisfaction of any governmental agency having jurisdiction, any hazardous substances released, discharged or disposed of as the result of or in any way connected with the conduct of Owner's business, and which is now or is hereafter determined to be unlawful or subject to governmentally imposed remedial requirements.

If Owner handles hazardous substances, Owner shall: (1) at all times maintain an employee or consultant familiar with applicable law and charged with responsibility for Owner's compliance with all applicable law relating to hazardous substances; (2) implement a system to review Owner's hazardous substance activities on a regular basis; and (3) shall in good faith (consistent with sound business practices) implement and maintain best management practices to minimize the hazards posed by materials utilized by Owner, for example, by reducing the amounts of hazardous substances used and disposed of, by utilizing less dangerous or less toxic materials or by implementing programs to ensure the safe and proper handling, labeling, use and disposal of hazardous substances.

ARTICLE VII

(a)Signage shall be coordinated so far as is reasonably possible with the exterior design and colors of the building to which the signs apply.
