              Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:

              Applications may not contain a proposed project density that exceeds 4 times that allowed under existing zoning, or 8 units per acre, whichever is greater. This limit may be waived by the local board if the applicant agrees to a 10% cap on profits, or agrees to donate the equivalent amount of money to the host community to be used for the construction of additional low and moderate income housing units in the host community.
