The head of our state, during trips to the regions of the country, regularly conducts dialogues with the population, gets interested in people’s living conditions, pays special attention to issues and problems concerning them. This was also reflected during the meeting with residents of multi-storey houses belonging to the “Metallurg-madad” private homeowners association in the territory of “Pakhtakor” makhalla in the city of Bekabad. More than 750 people are living in 234 apartments of 8 multi-storey houses of this association. The roofs of the houses are repaired, old pipes in the cellars are completely replaced, modern doors with code locks, security surveillance cameras are installed in the houses. This serves to ensure peace and tranquility in the territory. Modern playgrounds are built around the houses.
However, there are also problems worrying residents. In particular, the heating system is not working in the houses. This state of affairs is observed not only in this association, but also in almost the entire city of Bekabad. Providing drinking water is also one of the problems concerning the population. Although there is drinking water, its quality does not meet the requirements.

This can also be seen in the city of Bekabad. Currently, the number of its residents exceeds 90 thousand. Forecasts show that by 2035 this figure will reach 110 thousand. This, in turn, requires consideration of demographic growth.
