      f.   Area based density bonuses:
         i.   Woodlands are preserved and set aside in common areas:      acres
         ii.   Natural preserves in excess of 50% are created or set aside into common areas:      acres
         iii.   Total acreage bonus for Stormwater Infiltration practices per the Water Resource Ordinance:       acres
            Total acres for area based density bonuses (i + ii + iii): =       acres
            Divide by the net site area (§ 154.267(C)): /      acres
            Multiply by 100: x 100% =       %
            Equals area based density bonus percentage (Not to exceed 10%)
+       %
2.   Equal total bonuses (Add 1a -1f) (25% Max.)
=     %
                 
3.   Divide total bonus % by 100
      %/100
                 
4.   Multiply total bonus by prebonus maximum number of dwelling units (from §§ 154.266 or 154.267)
    x     units
5.   Equals number of bonus dwelling units
=     units
                 
6.   Add results of yield plan or yield formula to bonus dwelling units for maximum number of dwelling units
=     units
