“We Are the Owners of This City” has ome out against construction of
Hamazgayin Theater in Mashtots Park.
The statement of the initiative says that the Park is a public
access area, and the construction of the theater is unacceptable. The
activists recall that the Urban Development Council of the Municipality
of Yerevan has repeatedly turned out construction projects in this
area, however, attempts are currently being made to organize public
hearings on this project.
The initiative expresses hope that Sos Sargsyan, the artistic head
of Hamazgayin Theater, will demand another area for construction of
the theater. The initiatives demands that the municipal authorities
should exclude discussion of any project implying capital construction
in Mashtots Park and start beatifying the Park. “This should concern
all the public green territories of Yerevan”, the statement says.
To recall, Hamazgayin Theater headed by Sos Sargsyan has been in the
building of the Yerevan State Institute of Theater and Cinematography
for many years. According to the project, the building of Hamazgayin
Theater is to be located in the final part of Mashtots Park, not far
from the Head Post Office.
