Workshop "Petofi Square: how it should be" took place in Uzhgorod

On Sunday, October 8, a workshop "Petefi Square: how it should be" with an urbanist from Lviv, teacher of UCU, ex-director of the communication program of the Urban Institute Maryana Kuzemska took place in Uzhgorod.

One of the tasks of the workshop was to establish communication with representatives of local authorities. The event was attended by the deputy mayor of Uzhgorod, Igor Fartushok, the head of the Department of Urban Environment Design of the Urban Development and Architecture Office Olena Strychyk and the head of the Department of Economics and Strategic Planning Olga Travina.

Let's start with the official information about the scandalous project of the reconstruction of the square from the City Council officials - after all, the absence of it has generated a lot of urban legends about what is happening on Petofi Square.

Deputy Mayor of Uzhgorod Igor Fartushok:

"Today there is no real project of reconstruction. There is a project for the restoration of underground networks - in fact, repairs are now under way, their projected cost is 13 million hryvnias. Those are underground communications, water, sewerage, electricity, gas, distribution. We plan to complete these works by the end of winter. During this period, a project for the development of the surface part should be made.

 However, there is little time, because, if the weather is favourable, the repairs on the square will be completed in three months. It is preferable to begin the reconstruction in the spring, but the development of the project, its examination (about 3 months) may be delayed until autumn.
This workshop can be considered a reference point.

The proposal is as follows: to compile a single document with suggestions of representatives of the community and to develop a reconstruction project based on it. Of course, we will never satisfy everyone. But we'll try to take the wishes of the community into account."
