ArmInfo. At the meeting of the Armenian government on September 6, the development of the historical center Kumayri in Gyumri, investment projects on the development of the ethnographic quarter "Armenian village" in Yerevan, the development of the city of Vanadzor, as well as issues related to the activities of the "Sevan National Park" SNCO were discussed. ArmInfo was informed about this in the press service of the Government of Armenia.
Under the $ 100-150 million program, it is planned to create the ethnographic quarter "Armenian Village" with the architectural style inherent in Armenian cities and villages: residential buildings, hotels, and halls with paintings and works of folk art (carpets, forging, ceramics, souvenirs products). "I am sure that the "Armenian Village" can become one of the sights of Yerevan, which will best represent the identity of the regions and cities of Armenia," K. Karapetyan said.
Touching upon the development of Vanadzor, the Prime Minister noted that the Ministry of Territorial Administration and Development commissioned the Development Fund of Armenia, together with the Center for Strategic Initiatives and city officials, to complete the city development plan as soon as possible, taking into account the advantages and potential of Vanadzor, including tourism potential. As it turned out, a group of Italian architects recently visited Vanadzor, and plans to present a plan for the development of the city from October to November. The head of government attached great importance to the implementation of specific programs for the development of the city, including infrastructure and directions for the development of tourism.
K. Karapetyan was also presented with the reform project of the "Sevan National Park". These are reports on governance, land use, environmental protection, urban development and recreation areas. It was also noted that now work is underway to identify suitable areas for development in the National Park, dismantling of unauthorized buildings and withdrawal of contracts, waste management in the area adjacent to Lake Sevan. The issues of improving the infrastructure on the Sevan peninsula were also touched upon to create attractive tourism conditions.
