In May 2013, Mayor Mike Spano signed into law a Yonkers Green Buildings ordinance, establishing a policy for the City to design and construct its facilities to be sustainable and to encourage commercial and residential developers to do the same. In June 2013, the Commissioner of Planning and Development formally adopted the Yonkers Green Development Workbook including a checklist and standards to guide this policy.
The guides include information on why it's important to create a sustainable and green lifestyle, offers 12 tips to students looking to "go green", and the jobs available to students interested in green careers.
