Excavations in Padnikollie

In the framework of upcoming COMMA project, our organization is discussing with Mahilyow City Executive Committee a pilot project on public participation in the re-planning of Padnikollie District. Municipal companies are already doing some construction works there. Most of the shrubs have been cut down. The remains of several old buildings were removed. For the last 2 months local archaeologists have been excavating the site of Intercession Church, one of the most interesting monuments of Mahilyow school of architecture. Local stakeholders are already unhappy and demand to stop some of the works. Everything points to a promising pilot project on co-management!
