A longer tenn Lease Agreement will be put in place once the new Zoo Director has had ample time to become comfortable in his position. All parties agree to the tenns and conditions of this Agreement. Under the tenns of the Agreement, the Conservancy is not required to pay any rent during the tenn of the Lease, but will serve as the Zoo operator in consideration for said Lease. For the tenn of this Lease, the Conservancy will continue to have the exclusive right to the concession for the July concert and fireworks held in Thompson Park.
