Point System for Optional Credits

The purpose of the Estimated Score Sheet is to provide the applicant with the understanding that if a Building Permit Allocation System (BPAS) Allocation(s) is awarded, the total amount of points represented on the Estimated Score Sheet and finalized through the official staff ranking process is required to be permanently maintained throughout the lifecycle of the project. Because the total amount of points is not linked to one specific criterion, the applicant has flexibility in the construction phase in the event that certain point system criteria, for which the application is ranked, need to be substituted.

In the event that the Prerequisites and/or the total points are not achieved, a Certificate of Occupancy will not be issued for the project.
