The adviser to the head of Norilsk, Dmitry Samorodov, acted as a guide on the road, introducing the parliamentarians in detail to the events of the Norilsk-2035 city renewal program. By the way, he is one of the developers of the comprehensive plan for the socio-economic development of the city until 2035.
“We will be able to discuss all issues more productively when we see with our own eyes what has already been done since the signing of the agreement”, explained Alexander Pestryakov.
The Norilsk renovation program started in the city in 2021. Funds for its implementation were allocated within the framework of a quadripartite agreement. The amount of financing is 120 billion rubles. During the excursion, the deputies examined the sites for the construction of residential buildings on 50 Let Octyabrya street, grillages for mid-rise construction in the area of Laureatov street, 31, a site in Oganer, where a new building is already being erected.
As a reminder, the Norilsk renovation program until 2035 involves the construction of two multi-storey residential buildings on the street 50 Let Octyabrya (until 2024), 35 high-rise buildings in the Oganer residential area (three of them – until 2024), 41 low-rise buildings in the Central district and Talnah (10 of them – until 2024). In addition, seven emergency apartment buildings will be demolished by 2024, and another 38 buildings will be dismantled by 2035.
Considerable attention will be paid to the development of social infrastructure. Thus, a new school will be built in the Central district, a kindergarten – in Oganer, a building will be reconstructed to accommodate a preschool institution in Kayerkan, and a modern polyclinic and a fitness center will be built in Talnah. The former maternity hospital will be overhauled to accommodate the Complex Center for Social Services for the Population.
A large amount of funds under the quadripartite agreement will be directed to reform and modernize housing and communal services: thermal stabilization of soils under residential buildings and social facilities, reconstruction of collector facilities, as well as modernization of cable lines and repair of transformer substations.
In addition, by 2024, over 4.5 billion rubles will be allocated for the resettlement of 1,860 families of northerners (330 of them in 2021) to regions with a more favorable climate.
The program of social and economic development of Norilsk until 2035 also includes activities aimed at developing tourism: it is planned to build an observation deck overlooking Norilsk, create a shopping and pedestrian avenue on Mira street (similar to the Moscow Arbat) and much more.
