      The department of Social Services may have that answer. Perhaps the Yonkers IDA, and perhaps there deeloper. A good start may be to contact you Yonkers City Council representatives thty should have it at their fingertips.— kindly, Hezi

  1. None of this is designed for Yonkers residents, whether you’re middle class or seniors. Forget about affordability, it’s a joke!

  2. Will existing yonkers african american
    residents who originated from this community get any of these construction jobs and any of the 10 permanent jobs. Hand outs are needed, but a hand up is what does it over the long term.

  3. 10% affordable apt. How about 10% for disabled people? The other 80% for rich people? Doesn’t make any sense. Who agrees with me. There are people out there making less then $50,000 and can’t afford 30% of their salary for rent. Come on Mayor. Then you called this affordable. And they wonder why people leave NY to go to Florida, down South, including Puerto Rico, Thailand, Philippines or even Mexico. Can you ask that Mr Mayor? I don’t think so Sir..

    PS. There are also law Enforcement Officers with low income with disability.
