Overall plan for the development of Djizak till 2030
Provisions of the recently approved overall plan stipulate the subsequent development of the Uzbek town of Djizak as an administrative-economic, industrial and cultural center of Djizak province.
On September 30 2013, the Cabinet of Ministers of the Republic of Uzbekistan approved the Overall plan for the development of Djizak for a period of up to the year 2030.According to Norma.uz, the document specifies a set of basic principles and key parameters of Djizak\'s long-term development.
The main provisions of a given overall plan envisage its development as an administrative-economic, industrial and cultural center of the Republic\'s Djizak province. Under this plan, a package of measures will be accomplished in the course of both the entire calculated period (till 2030) and its first stage (up to 2017). The architectural and lay-out structure of the town\'s overall development plan rests on the continuity of the 1993 Djizak overall development plan that stipulated the expansion of its urban area in the northern and north-eastern directions. As in previous overall plans, the territory of Djizak is divided into residential and industrial zones. The residential zone (lands destined for the construction of dwelling houses and public buildings, roads, streets, squares etc. within the town limits), in turn, is sub-divided into administrative-economic, dwelling, cultural-educational, historical and other areas. Taking into account the expansion of Djizak in the north-eastern direction, its overall development plan provides for the creation of a new district center, together with the construction of all the necessary infrastructural facilities in the town\'s north-eastern part. In that way, the creation of a new sub-center in this part of Djizak will help to speed up the development of a given residential zone.
As for the town\'s industrial zones, they are located on the territory of the existing ones. The latter encompass the Central Industrial Zone, consisting of \"A\" and \"B\" industrial sub-zones, and the Western Industrial Zone based on the territory of a former lime factory. The \"A\" sub-zone tends to take on special significance, owing to the emergence there of a special industrial zone, called \"Djizak\". Such a territorial distribution of industrial zones (which are brought closer to the town\'s residential districts) is expected to benefit local workers by reducing the time they need to get to their work.
It is planned to remove small-scale industrial enterprises, warehouses and building organizations from the town\'s residential areas, placing them in industrial ones. Instead, a variety of cultural organizations and consumer-service centers will occupy their land plots. The development of engineering-technical infrastructure, in accordance with the overall plan, is designed to raise the level of reliability and efficiency of all engineering installations.
As well as that, the overall development plan of Djizak envisages the reinforcement of its functions as a regional center in the social field. Schools, kindergartens, guzars, small squares, lanes, avenues, boulevards etc. will be built in each makhallya or micro-district, with the number of denizens and established norms of service provision being taken into consideration.
Under the overall development plan, the system of town arterial roads is believed to regulate the town\'s existing network of highways, thus making it possible to create new dwelling districts and uniting all of them into a single whole. Latitudinal and meridional town arterial roads due to be constructed will be connected with the existing ones, with the subsequent access to the by-pass and outlying highways that lead to the town of Samarkand, district centers of Uchtepa, Yangikishlak, Gallyaaral and other populated areas and settlements in Djizak province. This will allow transit flows to go round the town of Djizak and thereby improve its ecological situation.
The development of road transport infrastructure such as bus service stations, motor transport maintenance centers and the like, will also be given a powerful incentive, with the objective of contributing to the overall improvement of the way these services are provided to the population. In a move to reduce the intensity of outside passenger flows on the town\'s arterial roads, the overall development plan of Djizak stipulates the creation at its entry points of bus depots designed to accept local transport, with the subsequent transfer of passengers to town motor transport. A network of town streets with regulated traffic will have the exit from each outward direction to the town\'s central part, in order to ensure the reliable links between dwelling districts, industrial enterprises and rest areas. A 6-ha plot was allotted for the storage and technical maintenance of 420 passenger buses and 780 taxis operating in the \"A\" zone.
The building of different types of dwelling houses is also planned in Djizak. Personal plots, with the square ranging from 500 sq. m. to i sq. m. per household, will adjoin single-ston houses. Four-storey apartment houses will be built within the town, especially in areas, where houses with few floors are to be demolished and replaced by main streets and avenues. Nine-storey houses will be erected in special town-planning centers, with consumer service centers being situated on their ground floors. As for sectional two-storey houses, their construction is not stipulated in the overall development plan of Djizak, because of their unprofitableness and inefficiency.
The town\'s overall development plan provides for a system of latitudinal boulevards, densely planted with trees and green plantations along the arterial and by-pass roads running across Djizak. Besides, restricted areas will be created round historical monuments situated in the town\'s different parts.
All the necessary infrastructural facilities will be built in the vicinity of these historical monuments, including hotels for tourists and parking places. As well as that, it is planned to restrict the placement of billboards and construction of buildings that are not in harmony with the character of local historical monuments.
A number of other measures are also specified in the overall development plan of Djizak. In addition, the governmental resolution under discussion approved both a list of its basic technical-economic indicators and a schedule for the development and approval of a town boundary project for a period of up to the year 2030.
