amend local laws, or resolutions in the case  of  school  districts,  to
provide  for an exemption from taxation to the extent of any increase in
assessed value of residential property resulting from  the  construction
or  reconstruction  of such property for the purpose of providing living
quarters for a parent or grandparent, who is sixty-two years of  age  or
THIS SECTION. Such exemption  shall  not  exceed  (a)  the  increase  in
assessed  value  resulting  from  construction or reconstruction of such

residential property as reported in the most  recent  sales  statistical

erty is located, whichever is less.

struction  which  occurred  subsequent  to  the  effective  date of this
section and shall only apply during taxable years during which at  least
one such parent [or], grandparent OR ELIGIBLE PERSON maintains a primary
