The Mayor of Kazan congratulates the former residents of the dilapidated houses on housewarming
On New Year's Eve, more than 80 Kazan families will move from dilapidated
residential buildings to new apartments under the housing resettlement program.
The Galimzyanov family was one of the first to receive keys in the residential
complex “Salavat Kupere”. The Mayor of Kazan Ilsur Metshin visited their new
apartment on Ilgam Shakirov Street. The Galimzyanovs were among 267 families
who planned to resettle in 2022, but managed to do it earlier.
“I would like to thank Tatarstan President for this program. It was
supposed to be completed in 2025, but thanks to the decision of Rustam Minnikhanov,
this was possible two years earlier. Fifteen hundred Kazan residents from 51 dilapidated
houses have already moved to new apartments”, - the Mayor said.
As the couple said, they have lived in their old house on Zheleznodorozhnikov
Street for more than 40 years. “We didn't even expect this to happen. The house
was recognized as dilapidated in 2016, and resettlement to new house was
scheduled for 2024. Now we are moving to a new apartment together with our
daughter”, - Nail Zakarievich said.
As pensioners noted, they got the keys from new apartment three days ago
and already commended the floor heating, because there were big problems with
this in the previous one.
The new dwellers conducted a small tour for the Mayor of Kazan and told him
that, in addition to other advantages of new apartment, there is more space.
Instead of 52.3 sq.m, the family got an apartment with an area of 71.3 sq.m.
for free. I. Metshin appreciated a beautiful view out of the window. According
to pensioners, moving to the twelfth floor was unusual at the beginning, but
they have already got used to it.
According to Rinat Shamsutdinov, head of the Housing Policy Department of
Kazan, 37 families from dilapidated houses are planned to move into this
At the end of the visit, the Mayor of Kazan presented the family with a
certificate for the purchase of home appliances. “We will try to make this area
even more beautiful. We will establish new infrastructure and plan to open new
polyclinics. Next year we will consider the transport issue. I wish you happiness
and good health”, - concluded I. Metshin.
For reference, from 2019 to 2021, 33 dilapidated houses were resettled in
Kazan, 733 people moved to new housing. The resettlement of citizens continues.
