On September 3, speaking at a meeting at the Cabinet of Ministers of the republic, Tatarstan Minister of Construction, Architecture, Housing and Utilities Irek Faizullin said that a regional programme on the improvement of the yards of multi-apartments houses has been launched. The Ministry held an inventory of 8,861 yards and according to its result, each yard received a passport, which indicates the area of the yard, green area and asphalt pavement, the number of apartments, porches and the length of the fences.
The improvement will primarily start in the courtyards built before 2014 and which had not been put in order before. It is planned to implement seven types of work in each yard, namely, asphalt pavement, replacement of wells and lighting organization will become mandatory types of work. The benches will also be put and playgrounds will be developed.
Tatarstan President Rustam Minnikhanov supported the proposal of the United Russia party to establish a new programme “Our Yard”. It is planned to allocate 50 billion roubles for its implementation. Due to the programme, about 3 million residents of Tatarstan will assess the positive changes that will take place in their yards.
