At least 570 sites of historical and cultural significance identified in Bishkek, the chief architect of the capital Bakytbek Abdiev said at a meeting of citizens with Ata Meken faction on the draft law "On the reconstruction and development of the historical center of Bishkek."
He said that half of the objects have the status of national significance, the second part - of local importance. "The owners of buildings of historical and cultural significance should conduct an annual repair and shouldn't change their appearance. They are not subject to demolition," he said.
Recall, social networks vigorously debated the bill proposed by Ata Meken faction, which will allow legally demolishing dilapidated houses in the center of the city on the basis of market value compensation.
