At a joint press conference in Yonkers today, Bill Mooney, President and CEO of the Westchester County Association announced the WCA’s support of Mayor Mike Spano's bold $2 billion redevelopment plan to rebuild and renovate all 39 schools in the City of Yonkers in order to create a modern, healthy learning environment for the city’s students. Mike Spano, Mayor of the City of Yonkers, embarked on the “Rebuild Yonkers Schools” campaign in response to the school’s aging and crumbling infrastructure and overcrowded classrooms, some of which have been carved out of unused closet and basement space. Nine of the district’s schools are over 100 years old, and many others are over 75.
