              Applications to build low or moderate income housing in an historic district as defined in MGL Chapter 40C must obtain a certificate of appropriateness as outlined in Section 6 of Chapter 40C. The local historic commission shall hold its hearing concurrently with the local zoning board and have its conditions included in the permit. None of the conditions may be appealed to the housing appeals committee as an uneconomic condition. An application may not be denied based upon its location within an historic district.
