Authorities of Almaty proposed to postpone construction of Kok-Zhailau resort
Almaty. April 8. KazTAG - Bauyrzhan Baibek, akim of Almaty, has proposed to postpone construction of Kok-Zhailau resort.
"Oi-Karagai-Lesnaya Skazka has been updated 20 times, all the world resorts are simply elaborated. I propose to elaborate the project (Kok-Zhailau-KazTAG) and postpone it," he said at the session of public council on Monday.
As it was reported, the project is regularly criticized by the public. The opponents protect the environment as serious damage may be caused to the eco-system of the region and deteriorate the ecological situation in Almaty. The authorities are reluctant to communicate with public. For instance, on February 20 the civil activists of the movement "Protect Kok-Zhailau" who arrived to the reporting meeting with B. Baibek, were detained by police.
