The town hall is preparing its own projects for mass and individual housing, but it also cooperates with private developers, town hall spokesman Jakub Mikuš told ČTK today.
The town hall is preparing the reconstruction of the former boarding school in Zašovská street. Construction could begin in 2025. There will be 32 apartments in the building with a layout of mainly 3+kk, complemented by 2+kk and 1+kk apartments. “This is the further development of the city’s housing stock, which currently has 434 apartments. These are primarily intended for seniors and people with disabilities. That’s why we want to occupy the Valmez – K1 apartment building project especially with families with small children,” said deputy mayor Yvona Wojaczková (ANO).
“For example, we are counting on apartment buildings in Vrbenská Street or Křižana Pila. We also actively cooperate with private investors who are preparing a number of projects,” said the deputy mayor. It concerns, for example, apartment buildings in Štěpánov, where the city sold land with the aim of housing construction. Other projects are in the area of the former Křižana sawmill or in local parts of the city. Mayor Robert Stržínek (ANO) said that it is primarily about the construction of family houses in locations where the spatial plan allows. “In summary, we expect that over 400 new apartments and more than 100 single-family houses or terraced houses could be built in our city by around 2030,” said the mayor of the city, which has approximately 23,000 inhabitants.
According to Stržínek, the town hall helps private investors, for example, by contributing to the construction of technical infrastructure, roads, sidewalks, water pipes, sewers and public lighting. “In addition, we also offer subsidies for the construction of elevators in four- and five-story apartment buildings. In addition, starting next year, we are expanding this subsidy to include a contribution for the repair of existing elevators, thus responding to the citizens’ request,” he added.
