The project implemented by the municipality Ribnica under the Agreement on the Development of the Jugovzhodna Slovenija Region is worth EUR 388 thousand with the European Regional Development Fund contribution standing at EUR 175 thousand.
As part of the project, municipality Ribnica will equip the industrial zone with the relevant infrastructure by establishing community and road infrastructure on a segment of the local road in Lepovče, which is part of the Lepovče Industrial Zone. As part of the planned investment, the municipality will construct a road, a one-way pedestrian corridor, water supply and rainwater sewer system, and install public lighting.
