YONKERS, N.Y. -- Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano on Monday pushed for a plan that would allow the city and state to bond $2 billion to overhaul 39 school buildings, according to lohud.com.

The 13-year plan, patterned on similar efforts in Syracuse, Buffalo and Rochester, N.Y., would likely involve a host of local and state organizations, according to lohud.com.

Spano detailed a plan that called for $500 million in phase one that would be used for the construction of two new schools. Three additional phases would require most of the remaining funds go toward renovating existing schools and building additions where necessary, according to lohud.com.
