The Mount Vernon School District is attempting to school local developers about the overcrowding and financial issues they would face in light of proposed new developments, by taking them to state Supreme Court. The Mount Vernon Board of Education filed an Article 78 petition with the court seeking to stop rezoning and revitalization plans for downtown. The board claims that local schools could not accommodate the population increase stemming from thousands of proposed new apartments and that an accurate analysis of the effect of the developments was not undertaken, Lohud reported. [Lohud]
