HOUSE-WARMING IN GYUMRI: 1056 FAMILIES WILL HAVE THEIR OWN FLATS

Tert.am
09.07.10

Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan is paying a visit to the
earthquake-hit city of Gyumri where 1056 families will celebrate
today house-warming. Some of them have already been given the keys
to their flats.

The buildings have been built in Mush 2 block on the site the former
Mush block used to be before the earthquake.

Addressing the public Urban Development Minister Vardan Vardanyan
mentioned that the construction in the earthquake-hit area will be
over in 2013. The ministry plans by that date provide homes to those
inhabitants of Shirak and Lori marzes (province) who lost their
shelter due to the 1988 earthquake.

In his words "all that the earthquake took from Gyumri's inhabitants
we must be able to return to them at the earliest."

Though talking to journalists they were complaining about the
house-building, saying that they do not receive relevant compensation,
the inhabitants of Gyumri welcomed the President with heavy applause
as he arrived. Many said that the issue of their flats would never
have been solved, had not been the President's factor itself.
