Mariupol to Allocate Site for Metinvest Polytechnic University
Ukraine’s largest mining and metallurgical company Metinvest is studying in detail the proposals for the construction of the first non-state technical university in Ukraine. Applications come from different cities of Ukraine, including Mariupol, where it was originally planned to build Metinvest Polytechnic. The decision to change the location of the university construction was made by the management of Metinvest Group on April 14, despite the fact that the building was planned to be built on the site of an abandoned summer cinema, which is privately owned by the company and outside the City Garden. The construction of the building did not affect the park itself in any way, while it would give a start to the development and reconstruction of all adjacent territories. The company respects the opinion of the community of Mariupol and reacted with understanding to the desire of the townspeople to preserve the current look of the old part of the city.
The key principles of the company are sustainable development, constructive interaction and mutually beneficial partnership with the community.
The Metinvest Group received a proposal, signed by the deputies of all factions of the Mariupol City Council, on the allocation of a plot in the area of Peace and Freedom Square for the construction of Metinvest Polytechnic. City councillors assure that this proposal reflects the opinion of the entire community, and the company hopes that if a location in Mariupol is chosen, there will be no more misunderstandings about the construction of a university in the city.
Metinvest Group is grateful to the city for the offer made: in general, this site in the city center is attractive for a large educational project. In the near future, all the necessary studies of the territory will be carried out in accordance with the legislation of Ukraine. As soon as the examinations are passed and the conclusions are received, the company will be able to make a final decision by evaluating all the proposed locations.
