the priority areas to develop in Kazan in the next five years? What activities are
planned in the capital of Tatarstan in the year of water protection zones? What
will be the general plan of development of Kazan? How will change the transport
system of the capital of the republic? How citizens can make their own
contribution to the development of the beloved city? the Mayor of Kazan Ilsur
Metshin said on these and other issues within the online conference held in the
portal TatCenter.ru February 18. The Mayor has launched a series of meetings of
residents with the heads of large municipalities and cities of the republic.
Petrova: Ilsur Raisovich! I respect your work, wish you success and patience.
The question is: how can we take part in the development strategy 2030, where
to send our wishes? And most importantly, how city council, the executive
committee will work with the wishes of the citizens?
I.M .: I am
very happy that my call to take an active part in the drafting of Kazan
development strategy is heard, and people began to think about this important
issue, though I appealed to all residents of the city with the request just
last week. I have always been convinced that active and indifferent people live
in our city who can work together to do things to do and to think about the
It is really
important to hear your suggestions. What should be the Kazan in 2030? How we
see the future of our children and grandchildren, what you need to feel
comfortable in retirement? How current generation of students and pupils see Kazan?
What they lack, what do we need to do for them to continue to learn and work,
to create their own family and raise children here in our beautiful city?
This is not
an empty pathos, but it really is a case where everyone's opinion is important.
It will be heard and carefully considered, all the good deals will be included
in the "Strategy 2030".
where to send comments and suggestions. Now you can send your suggestions to
the official portal of the city. A little later we will open a separate web
page devoted to Kazan Development Strategy.
How do you see the strategy of socio-economic development of our city until
2030 - on a long-term perspective? What are the primary goals to put it, what
problems to solve? I ask the question because I think that the strategy until
2030 – it is too long, how it will be realizable? I left Kazan and haven’t lived
here for 5 years. I get out of the provinces, arrived back to one of the best
cities in Russia. Everything is changing dynamically. Is it relevant to plan for
such a long time? Why is it necessary?
Thank you for the appreciation of the changes in the city. But I cannot accept
the fact that Kazan was a "province". We have always been the
educational center of the Volga region. Multicultural city with a unique
history. The names of people who was born or worked in Kazan are known around the
world: Derzhavin, Lobachevsky, Gabdulla Tukai, Butlerov, Chaliapin... It is not
enough time to enumerate all.
But you are
right that Kazan really changed dramatically recently. But these changes have
been made possible precisely because it was a dream at first. Without it we
would not have achieved such a transformation. The celebration of Kazan
Millennium, World Summer Universiade, the World Championship in water sports helped
us. But we cannot rest on our laurels. Therefore, we should try to model our future.
The more precisely we will imagine our dreams, the more aspects of city
development we will take into account, the more likely it will be able to move
to a new purpose and make Kazan more comfortable place to live. Therefore be
active in the discussion!
I have a question. You have announced a large-scale inventory of land near the
water in the Year of the water protection zones in Tatarstan. When the
inventory starts, when it is planned to be completed, which place, areas /
objects will be the first and how you plan to check on your expectations, what should
be a key result of the inventory of land at the coastline of Kazanka? Can Kazan
residents appeal somewhere if they find that the territory by the river is occupied
I.M .: By the
Commission on the coordination of anti-corruption in the Republic of Tatarstan
from 11.30.2015 No. Pr-355 it is recommended to take an inventory of land in
the area of water safety in all the municipalities of the Republic. It has been
arisen in connection with the announcement of the Year of water protection
zones in Tatarstan, and, I hope, it will help us to focus on such an important
issue as the prevention of violations of water law and ensuring the
availability of water bodies for all citizens.
It is no
secret that the reality is far from the ideal described in the law, which says
that every citizen has the right of free passage to the borders of the water
body. We have a lot ofoccupation, where some areas in floodplains are simply resemble a
landfill. And in order to bring order in this matter, it is necessary at least
to start with an inventory.
has already started in the past year. In the waters of the Kuibyshev Reservoir
Committee of Land and Property Relations of the Executive Committee of Kazan
inspected 690 plots of land along the coastal strip of the reservoir, 178
offenses were revealed, 80 were sent to
court, there are 69 court decisions of obliging to release illegally occupied
land. This year, as soon as weather conditions will permit, we will take stock
of land at Kazanka coastal line within the boundaries of the city of Kazan.
