Sverdlovsk governor visits Polevskoy to discuss city challenges

Eugene Kuyvashev, the governor of the Sverdlovsk region, recently visited Polevskoy in order to understand the city's problems and challenges.

The leader visited Birch Grove, a housing development built by Seversky Tube Works for their employees. The company built 122 houses at a rate of about three houses a week, for nine months, Oblastnaya Gazeta reports.

Construction began on a second stage--Birchwood--which will include three-story houses, 18 apartments and 122 townhouse/duplex apartments.

Birchwood will be open to plant employees as well as the general public. The housing will help accommodate the growing city and improve the quality of life, though the city lacks the treatment facilities to cope with the increase in housing, according to Oblastnaya Gazeta.

Kuyvashev also visited Seversky Tube Works to see the company's final stages of reconstruction rolling production.
