UrBC, Pervouralsk, July 1, 2019. ChelPipe Group, Sverdlovsk Region Government, and Pervouralsk Council signed a cooperation agreement to design and implement a master plan for a series of urban improvements in Pervouralsk, the company’s press service reports.

The agreement was signed by ChelPipe Group’s shareholder Andrei Komarov, Governor of Sverdlovsk Region Evgeny Kuivashev, Mayor of Pervouralsk Igor Kabets, and Sergey Kapkov, head of Moscow State University School of Economics’ Culture and Urban Development Center.

The public-private partnership program will cover ChelPipe Group, which runs its member enterprise Pervouralsk New Pipe Plant (PNTZ) in Pervouralsk, acting as the customer and the primary initiator for the design and development of an urban development master plan for the town. The plan is expected to contain a concept for the creation of quality environment for the local residents of all ages and for every lifestyle; strategies for the transformation of urban spaces; and a growth roadmap to attract more human capital into the area.

‘ChelPipe Group proposed to have a comprehensive urban development project designed for the towns where the company operates, which is currently an unprecedented initiative for this country. We think it only logical that White-Coated Metallurgy extends beyond our production departments as such and moves on into the town where every one in five working-age residents has a connection to PNTZ. Pervouralsk is going to become the first one-employer town to try out new approaches to the organization of the urban environment, condominium backyards, planting of trees and shrubs, small and medium enterprise development, and support of social infrastructure. Our PPP is meant to result in a colorful, appealing town that is a great place to work and live,’ says ChelPipe Group’s shareholder Andrei Komarov.

The urban improvements will first involve the most prominent locations such as the central square, the main street, the Novy Pond Embankment, and PNTZ Culture Palace.
