The township board has given the green light to the Lyndhurst School District to build a $50 million dollar junior high school at Matera Field.

The school board adopted an ordinance for a multi-million dollar plan, which includes buying the outdated Lincoln School and flipping it to help pay for the new school at Matera Field.

In a shared agreement, the township and the school board will work together to have the new school built.

It's part of a multi-layered plan to revitalize old school properties in Lyndhurst.

Taxpayers will pay $40 a year to cover the cost of the bonds.

Lincoln School will continue functioning as a junior high while the new school is built.

Voters will decide in November if they want to pay for renovations in existing schools.
