New Jersey Governor Chris Christie unveiled a new plan that will result in school construction projects throughout the Garden State..but none of those projects will be located in Cape May County. Christie says ten projects will be part of the 2011 construction plan, but only the Cherry Street Elementary School in Bridgeton is located in the South Jersey region. The state plans on investing $584 million in these projects.
Governor Chris Christie today announced a complete revamping of the Schools Development Authority construction program and the first-ever statewide prioritization of SDA school construction projects to bring accountability to the spending of hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars annually for school improvements and expansion. The new program embodies the fundamental reforms taken at the SDA since Governor Christie took office. The recommendations will be presented to the SDA Board of Directors in the coming weeks for their review and approval.
