Now Playing: Will the new homes be built on land owned by a local developer?
article New residential bathrooms have been installed in most of the country’s cities and towns over the past decade, but there is one place in the country where a new model has yet to be introduced.
That’s the case in New York City, where officials say the city plans to roll out a $1.3 billion renovation of about 5,000 bathrooms in 2018.
New York City is rolling out a new home renovation model in 2017, which is a massive overhaul of a citywide network of public bathrooms.
The city is hoping to do something similar in California, which has more than 100,000 public bathrooms that could be replaced by new designs.
The renovation will be done with state and federal funding, with about $250 million coming from the federal Housing and Urban Development Agency and the city will also get $100 million from the Federal Housing Finance Agency.
That funding will go towards the construction of about 6,000 new homes.
In addition to the new bathrooms, the city is also working on a “reservoir improvement program” to improve the water quality of New York’s drinking water, according to the Associated Press.
Residents in New Jersey have also been able to get new public bathrooms installed at their local water fountains.
The new bathrooms are expected to be complete in time for the 2022 football season.
