MAKE SURE NOT TO SEND YOUR KIDS TO THESE SCHOOLS

MAKE SURE NOT TO SEND YOUR KIDS TO THESE SCHOOLS

Disputed school plan’s OKd. By Frank Lombardi, NY Daily News

School The City Council agreed yesterday to let the city build a complex of four public schools for 2,400 students on a South Bronx site with contaminated ground soil.

The 45-to-0 approval of the site came after Council officials hammered out additional safety measures and assurances with the Bloomberg administration – beyond those in the city’s original $30 million cleanup plan for the site.

The $230 million school campus will be shared by two high schools, a combination high school-intermediate school, and a charter school for grades 5 through 8.

Though it’s being called the Mott Haven School Campus, the complex is to be built on a 6.6-acre tract of vacant land that is technically in the Concourse Village-Melrose area.

The site had been used as a railroad yard for more than a century. Toxic contaminants were found there and at adjoining tracts that had housed a gas manufacturing plant and a gasoline station.
