Residents of Teryan Street buildings that encircle a little bit of green space in downtown Yerevan are concerned that someone will come in and build a store or two.

Years ago, locals planted trees and grapevines in the empty lot in an attempt to create a tiny oasis of green and serenity.

Resident Ghoukas Haroutyunyan told Hetq that this past Saturday, as residents were cleaning the site, two men approached and berated them for illegally planting trees and bushes. One said he was from the Yerevan Municipality but didn’t give his name.

The “official” told residents that the municipality had given its approval for the construction of 3 commercial stalls at the site.
