The Jerusalem Municipality on Tuesday issued a tender for the housing project "clear and build" at the Ulsanger Project in Kiryat Hayovel.
The housing project, targeted to assist young families in finding housing, will include 1,000 new residential units in five of the larger neighborhoods. In recent years, similar projects have been approved for younger residents, including the "Connecting Project" and the "Zionist Project", which have produced hundreds of additional residential units. The municipality has also provided other forms of support to young families to help them navigate the process, including architectural and social advice.Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat noted that, "The city has set as a goal to develop and broaden the residential living possibilities for young families. The Kiryat Yovel neighborhood has been designated [a neighborhood] for young [families] and we are acting to develop solutions for residential living, education, the environment and culture for the benefit of the neighborhood residents and the many young families who live there."
