$200 million in renovations approved for Yonkers schools
Yonkers Public Schools will be seeing some $200 million in renovations thanks to the City Council, who is paying for the renovations by borrowing money under the new Capitol Improvement Plan. The City Council approved $212 million in bonds Wednesday for the district and expects to put that money toward 20 different projects throughout the city. Gorton High School will be seeing some of the biggest renovations, as there is a proposal to tear the building down and build a new school on the football field next door. The Martin Luther King Elementary School on Locust Hill Avenue would also see a major overhaul, including some serious repairs and plans to expand the size of the school itself.
