WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- The French-American School of New York’s plan to create a new school and a 73-plus-acre open space conservancy in White Plains at the defunct 130-acre Ridgeway Country Club was endorsed by 18 environmental organizations recently.

A letter signed by all of the endorsers of the new school was sent to White Plains Mayor Thomas Roach and the city’s Common Council as well as Superintendent of Schools Tim Connors and the Board of Education.

The letter states that "the school itself would bring tremendous educational and economic benefits to the city and its residents. By introducing a world-class bilingual educational institution to the city, FASNY would add diversity and strength to the educational options in White Plains and the region.”

A previous letter with the signatures of 16 endorsers was sent in September of 2012 as well.
