Ashkhen Babayan says the town, which boasted being the cleanest settlement in Lori marz only few years ago, is not the same today. "I don't think the problem is with the residents," says Babayan.
The results of Urbanista's online survey show that the residents of the town prioritize road renovations, yard space improvements, and education. Social safety is important to 29% of respondents; the housing services and culture related matters share equal levels of public interest.
Spitak mayor supports the priority given to local infrastructures. "We try to keep the existing asphalt covering. Our funds are too scarce for a totally new paving. The problem can be partially solved only if we have side support," he says.
