   These bonds will be issued under provisions of Act #9 of the first extraordinary session

of the 62nd General Assembly of the State of Arkansas and will be serviced by the revenues

derived under a lease with Meyer’s Bakeries of Little Rock, Inc. Which will provide the net

rentals sufficient to pay interest and princi9pal requirements on these bonds.
"These bonds shall bear the legal approving opinion of Messrs. Smith, Williams, Fridsy and

Bowen, Little Rock, Arkansas and shall be secured by a lease of the plants and related

facilities of Meyer's Bakeries of Little Rock, Inc., which shall have the normal provisions

of such leases. It is agreed that the lease and the bond ordinance shall be subject to the

approval of Meyer's Bakeries of Little Rock, Inc. The lease payments shall be in an amount

sufficient to amortize the bonds and pay the paying agent's fees.



   We have agreed to pay all the expenses connected with the bond issue including printing of

the bonds, trustees fees and the approving attorney's fees. The amount of the issue will be

$500,000 over a 20 year period at an interest rate to be agreed upon but not to exceed 4-

3/4%. These bonds will mature over a 20 year period. The bonds will be callable for

prepayment after 5 years at a premium of 104 ½.



   It is agreed that an election shall be held as soon as possible and should the election

fail or the bonds not be issued for any reason, neither the City of Hope nor Meyer’s Bakeries

of Little Rock, Inc. will be obligated to us for expenses or services.




    It is understood that the bonds will be delivered to us within six months of this date,

the right of extension to be at our option."

said pond or ponds in an economic and prudent fashion.

facilities constructed in connection therewith, on said ten-acre tract hereinabove described

or elsewhere, in accordance with the terms of this, agreement, shall be maintained by Second

Party, so long as said fence is not erected outside the boundaries of said ten-acre tract.

Second Party shall maintain adequate shrubbery inside any fences erected in accordance with

the terms hereof in such a manner as to shield said oxidation pond from the surrounding

lands.



   8.       First Parties, their heirs or assigns, further agree that they will grant to

         Second Party utility easements in and across the Greening Tract, at no cost to Second

         Party as is required to serve the development of said Greening Tract.   Said easements

         are to be granted in accordance with the overall development plan of said Greening

         Tract and are to be established by sound engineering practices and procedures.



             It is the intention of the parties theeto that First Parties, their heirs or

   assigns, will grant to Second Party sufficient easements, without cost, to develop said

   Greening Tract, as is required for said development, but in a manner that would be in

   keeping with sound engineering practices and procedures and that would be in the best

   interest of First parties, their heirs or assigns, in accordance with their overall

   development plan of the Greening Tract.
    9. Second Party agrees that no connection, by persons, firms, corporations or

any other organization or group not a party to this agreement, shall be made to any

sewage or water facility constructed by Second Party on said Greening Tract without

the affirmative approval of First Parties, their heirs or assigns, and Second Party.

of water and sewer facilities to surrounding and adjoining landowners of the

Greening Tract that are connected to, made an extension of, or served through any

water or sewer lines constructed on or under the easements granted herein shall not

be made without the affirmative approval in writing of First Parties, their heirs or

assigns and Second Party.



    10. Second Party agrees that First Parties, their heirs or assigns, may connect,

without charge to the main water line serving the School Site, and Second Party

agrees that said main water line serving said School Site shall be so constructed

whereby it will be of sufficient size and capacity to adequately serve a minimum of

seven hundred dwelling units that may be erected on the Greening Tract.

covenants running with the land as herein described, and shall be binding upon all

the parties hereto, their heirs and assigns, forever.
