Specific recommendations were developed at the meeting, according to the ideas of the residents of the neighborhood, specialists of the Kryvyi Rih Institute of City Development will create sketches and a 3D concept. It will be submitted to the residents for approval. And only after that will start designing.
Deputy Mayor Serhiy Milyutin noted: Mayor Konstantin Pavlov attracts the best domestic and foreign specialists to create a comfortable and harmonious space in Kryvyi Rih. We use urban planning approaches that have already proven themselves in the world."
Currently, work is underway to restore and create the infrastructure framework of the neighborhood - roads for maintenance (garbage removal, arrival of special vehicles - fire and ambulance) and traffic; fixing the correct boundaries of adjacent territories, as well as zoning of territories.
The German urbanist noted that if the residents themselves are involved in the development and implementation of the project, using the best experience, then in such conditions from an engineering, urban planning point of view, landscaping can be put in order, and people will be ready and able to care for the neighborhood.
