Street. They will allow residents to save on electricity bills. The yard is
cleaned by special electrical vehicle, which is charged here – from the first
yard station for e-cars in the city. Such innovations were provided during the

Dekabristov Street, now they are already 90% completed. “We have done a lot of
joint work with the property management company and residents. Thanks to this,
all the feedback was taken into account. For example, an apple tree grows in
the center of the yard, so we installed benches around it, and now it has
become the central resting place for residents of these houses”, - S.Mironov
The road pavement,
outdoor lighting networks were completely updated, sidewalks, green areas were
landscaped, benches, small architectural forms and a playground were installed.

Kazan talked with the residents of the houses to find out their opinion about
