The State Committee for Urban Planning and Architecture has identified companies that will make up master plans for several cities in Azerbaijan, the committee said on Thursday.
Tender was held on five lots, which provide for holding of these works in cities of Hajigabul, Siyazan, Yardimli Zardab and Zagatala.
The tender winners were Az?x LLC, Renessans Studio LLC, El & En, Arxin-M LTD LLC and the chief state design institute; contracts were signed with them.
The State committee deputy chairman Dovletkhan Dovletkhanov told Trend earlier that preparation of master plans of these five cities is planned to be completed in 2013.
In 2012, the State Committee finalized work on preparation of master plans of 13 cities (Yevlakh, Sheki, Gakh, Barda, Agdash, Ujar, Jalilabad, Masalli, Gobustan, Shamakhi, Khizi, Ismayilli and Samukh).
"These regional development plans will be the basic documents, which in the future various local authorities will rely on," Dovletkhanov said.
