White Plains voters approved the school district's $48.2 million bond proposal Tuesday, green-lighting the spending plan by a near three-to-one margin.
Final results show 767 votes in favor of the proposal (73.8 percent) and 273 votes against (26.2 percent).
"I am very happy with the results," said White Plains School Superintendent Chris Clouet. "I feel that we did a lot of community outreach in order to explain the proposal to people and I was very gratified by the three-to-one margin of support."
The capital spending plan will raise the district's tax levy by .72 percent, which will increase the tax payment for an average White Plains home by $65.12 annually, according to district estimates.
Renovations are now cleared for nine of the district's buildings. A large portion of the spending will go toward Eastview Middle School, where $22.6 million will be spent on renovations.
Some of the district's elementary school playgrounds will also receive upgrades. Wireless internet will be added to all of the district's buildings as well.
An 18-member task force has been working on the proposal since 2010. The task force completed three different plans for the district's board of education to consider this year. The Board of Education approved the $48.2 million project voters approved Tuesday in August.
The renovations are expected to be complete by November 2015, with the most critical work completed over the summer of 2013.
