“Sadly, the overall volume in the field, overall capital construction, will be less than a year ago – about 94%,” he said during the regular meeting session in the Penza region government held on Saturday, December 19.

The increase is slightly bigger, as the statistics now include organizations that did their work in the Penza region while being registered in a different part of the country, noted the head of the Construction Ministry.

“All planned cultural, social and communal objects were built and opened,” Alexander Grishaev reported.

According to him, the kindergarten construction plan is going to be completed in the nearest future.

“Overall, only three kindergartens are yet to be opened in Penza: two in Ternovka residential area, and one in GPZ-24 area. The Belyaeva street kindergarten is almost ready, and will be up for opening as early as in December,” he said, and added that the construction in Sukhanovka of the Kuznetsk area and Bessonovka are also nearing completion.

In the meantime, the plan to provide housing for orphans will exceed the set levels, both through new and procured housing, Alexander Grishaev explained.

“The construction plan under the program ‘Clear Water’ has been completed,” he stressed.

The head of Construction Ministry also said that the capital repair plans, as well as the plans to move citizens from dilapidated housing, will be completed.

“The only thing to remain for [Penza] city at the moment is to prepare the housing move roadmap,” he pointed out.

Discussing the current situation with the program to move people from dilapidated housing, the acting mayor Sergei Volkov admitted that “there are certainly some issues.”

“We have the objectives – the obligations in this regard must be completed,” he said.

The process has been slowed down, Sergei Volkov explained, due to residents of 93 dilapidated housing areas to be moved are reluctant to accept the conditions offered after the move.

“Certain court decisions will have to take place,” he noted.

Overall, according to the acting mayor, the program is 78% completed.
