Many places of recreation of citizens are updated and become more beautiful. Having visited the venue "Dazhynki", the correspondents of grodnonews.by were convinced that a large amount of work was done last year, but this year the landscaping and renovation are continuing.
According to Viktor Kemezhuk, acting chairman of the Skidel Town Executive Committee, dozens of iconic objects have been updated in 2020, streets and residential courtyards have been landscaped. There are new automobile interchanges and bridges, pedestrian and bicycle paths have been laid. Significant funds have been allocated for the modernization of the House of Culture in the sugar factory area, where the heroes of the harvest will be honored. A modern cinema, a registry office department will open here.
It's nice to drive through the renovated streets of the town. The facades of administrative buildings are pleasing to the eye, most of which have undergone major repairs. The most colorful project was the picturesque panels on residential buildings. Artists from Minsk painted the ends of high-rise buildings with bright graffiti. Most of the images are devoted to agricultural topics.
Small architectural forms also adorn the town. Driving through the town, you notice, for example, two turrets standing next to each other. They were not installed by chance. This symbol of the town is also depicted on its coat of arms.
The old park looks modern today. A snow-white rotunda is installed in the center.
Many places of recreation of citizens are updated and become more beautiful. A couple of years ago, the "Alley of Military Glory" with military equipment was officially opened in Skidel. It is replenished with exhibits and is included in excursion routes related to military events and the liberation of the region. Recently, new benches were arranged here, young trees were planted, a memorial plaque was opened to Komsomol underground workers by May the 9.
This year will be remembered by residents of apartment buildings in the sugar factory area not only as a holiday. A new boiler house has been built to reliably provide the microdistrict with hot water.
Recently, a lot of retail and public catering facilities have appeared in the satellite town. According to Viktor Kemezhuk, empty buildings in Skidel are willingly bought up by private businesses. One of these days, a cafe-pizzeria "Venice" will open in one of them. The shop of the Grodno meat processing plant is located in the renovated pre-war building.
By 2025, Skidel promises to have a population of 16 thousand. This is laid down by the general plan for the development of the satellite town. Today, almost 11 thousand people live here. There was a time when young people left for Grodno, since housing was practically not built here. Now the situation has changed radically.
The implementation of the project for the construction of a quarter of comfortable houses for large families continues. Grodnozhilstroy will build 17 individual cottages for two families each. High-rise buildings are being built along Sovetskaya Street. A three-storey kindergarten with almost 200 seats is also being built here. We plan to pass it by the end of the year. The object is very relevant for the town, everyone is waiting for it. It will solve the problem of placing children in preschool, as the town is growing. Almost the entire microdistrict consists of young families who are credited on preferential terms. Some of the high-rise buildings have already been commissioned. The new neighborhood is very convenient for living. The garden is still under construction, but the playgrounds are fully landscaped.
Everything made for the "Dazhynki" will remain for many years to the residents of Skidel as a gift to the hospitable hosts of the festival. The annual holding of the holiday in one of the district centers has become a good reason for the renewal of the cities of the Grodno region and the surrounding settlements. Next year, the town-village of Berestovitsa will become the capital of "Dazhynak".
By the way
According to the Committee on Agriculture and Food of the regional executive Committee, the holding of the regional festival-fair of village workers "Dazhynki-2021" in the Grodno region was scheduled for 2020, but due to the unfavorable epidemiological situation, it was forced to be postponed to the current one.
Traditionally, the festival-fair was held on the eve of the Day of Workers of Agriculture and Processing industry of the agro-industrial complex, which is celebrated on the third Sunday of November. During this period, the weather is not always favorable, there are often rains and cold, so it was decided to postpone the "Dazhynki" to September.
Skidel will host the celebration of the winners of the regional competition for achieving the best performance in the harvesting of grain and leguminous crops. The best workers of other branches of the agro-industrial complex will be awarded at a solemn event that will be held in Grodno on the eve of the Day of Workers of Agriculture and Processing Industry.
