The Municipality of Tirana has completely transformed the whole block near Str. “Dhimitër Shuteriqi” of “Ndrek Luca”, adding thermal insulation which ill allow residents to save on energy. Mayor Erion Veliaj inspected the latest building undergoing rehabilitation, allowing the project to extend to other neighborhoods of the capital. He said that thanks to the co-operation of the area’s community, who applied for the Community Fund, this block of flats has transformed. The mayor urged citizens to cooperate with one another: “I want to thank and ask all the residents for their cooperation. I want to remind them that while they may be old-timer buildings, they are privately owned, so they have been privatized since ’93 -’94, so everyone should understand that joint administration means that everyone is willing to freely unite their property with others, to make sure that the common goal will be to bring value to what is immaterial and private. You need to find a common language in a democratic way, so that investment can be obvious, ” Veliaj said. He praised the administrators’ valuable contribution to their role as mediators between the community and the municipality, as he described them as true urban heroes.
The building manager, Adem Cemurati, said: “With the Community Fund in this area the facades of the buildings have been reconstructed, they are all covered with thermal insulation. Residents have been very interested in the economic side, as they will save electricity, both in summer and winter”. / Tiranapost.al
