From the Committee charge:
In 1960, the State Legislature enacted enabling legislation in Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 40C ("40C") to standardize the administration and practices of historic district commissions across the Commonwealth.
Our HDC was created in 1956 by a Special Act of the Legislature, before the 40C legislation. The 40C Study Committee will study the provisions of 40C, the differences between 40C and the Lexington Special Act, and the process for conversion to 40C.
