KHABAROVSK, May 2 (Itar-Tass) — The authorities of the Amur Region familiarized residents in the village Tygda with the rules and standards to grant housing to people, who remained homeless after the fire.
The fire in Tygda destroyed 83 residential houses and over 40 other buildings on April 20.
“107 families or 287 people have the right for housing. The housing standard of 33 square meters is set for people living alone and the housing space of at least 42 square meters will be provided for the families of two people. The families of three and more people are entitled to 18 square meters per capita,” the press service of the regional government told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
The construction of one-flat, two-flat houses and two 2-storey houses designed for five and eight flats will begin on May 5. All homeless fire victims will receive new housing by spring.
Governor Oleg Kozhemyako explained at a meeting of Tygda residents and the budget resources are allocated for housing construction, if the legislation is observed, as land plots should be in municipal or state property.
The governor also noted that the Russian government pays compensations from the reserve fund. Some 282 people will receive compensations over the loss of housing. The material aid will be also provided to the relatives of three people, who died in the fire.
