#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. The governor of the Krasnoyarsk region, Alexander Uss, suggested creating a strategic plan for positioning Norilsk as the capital of the Russian Arctic within a few months.
According to the regional government, the Norilsk administration has prepared a preliminary list of 18 events and sent it to the working group. The estimated financing is 120 billion rubles. Proposals for the draft comprehensive plan for the socio-economic development of Norilsk until 2035 will be formed in the first half of June.
According to the governor, it is impossible to create an accurate projection of the Norilsk future.
“Therefore, we have to create the most flexible development plan, propose a choice of directions for the city’s development, which will shape Norilsk’s ability to adapt to new challenges and at the same time allow the city to preserve its uniqueness. In the coming days I will create a team to rise above the current situation and look into the Norilsk of the future. In the next three to four months, we need to prepare the first draft of proposals that we can present to the state’s head”, the governor explained.
