Ilsur Metshin to the Kazan residents: “Let’s meet back in autumn, you won’t recognize your yard”
By the end of summer, residents of the Sovetsky district will have new
recreational areas – under the Our Yard republican program, a comprehensive improvement
will be carried out at seven yards of the residential area between Pobedy
Avenue, Sakharova and Zakieva Streets. The Mayor of Kazan Ilsur Metshin got
acquainted with the project today. He talked to local residents and found out their
opinion about the upcoming improvement works. “Let’s meet back in autumn, you won’t
recognize your yard”, - the head of the city promised the Kazan residents.
The improvement of the adjacent territories under the
Our Yard program was launched in the capital of Tatarstan last year. “We try to
improve every yard, there are new solutions for playgrounds and equipment,”- Ilsur
Metshin said to the residents of the houses. He reminded that in 2020, thanks
to Tatarstan President Rustam Minnikhanov, the yards of 460 apartment buildings
were renovated in Kazan under the Our Yard program, and this year yards of 408
houses are planned to be improved. Along with the program, the tradition of
discussing improvement projects with residents appeared. “Your opinion is
important to us, you have lived here for many years, and you know every single
corner. Only in dialogue we will be able to achieve a great result”, - I.Metshin
addressed the residents.
The improvement of the yards of the residential area
between Pobedy Avenue, Sakharova and Zakieva Streets will be carried out
comprehensively, respecting the wishes of the residents.
The total area of the landscaped territory is almost
130,255 sq.m, it includes seven yards of 27 apartment buildings, in which more
than 8.2 thousand residents live.
One of the largest yards is located between the houses
№120, №122, №124, №126a, № 128 on Pobedy Avenue. According to the architect
Alexey Nikolaevsky, the shape and area of the yard allow to create many
different zones on the territory. Much attention is paid to the playgrounds. Two
playgrounds for children of different ages will be installed in the yard. In
the neighborhood, there will be sports grounds – a ground with workout and
cardio equipment, as well as equipment for gymnastics. In addition, there will
be football and basketball grounds.
In the central part of the yard, there will be a walking
area with benches and canopies- a place to hide from the sun on summer days.
Special attention will be paid to the landscaping of parking spaces – they will
be moved outside the yard.
During the improvement of the yard, the asphalt
pavement and lighting will be updated, the sidewalks will be resurfaced, and bins
for separate waste collection will be installed.
The neighboring yards along Pobedy Avenue, Sakharova
and Zakieva Streets will have the same improvements.
Besides, in summer, it is planned to improve the
Zvezdny Square, which is located between the houses №128 on Pobedy Avenue and №21
on Zakieva Street.
