The item of allocation the territory for the Alley of Journalists is discussed and agreed with the city administration and the head of Petrozavodsk Nikolai Levin.

It is necessary to find technics to level the path (the tractor is required), to dig out holes, to deliver a ground, to buy saplings etc. In general, there's a lot of works to be done.

Technical questions are now discussed. Mass-media and journalists are to get saplings which all will be got and transported together.
