Panel discussion on the bamberg business park: concentrated information and contentious issues

Panel discussion on the Bamberg business park: concentrated information and contentious issues

What are the arguments in favor of a 47-hectare commercial area on the former muna site, and what are the arguments against it?? Flanked by expert supporters, mayor andreas starke (SPD) and mayor christian lange (CSU) represented the council petition for the project, while karin einwag and volker braun represented the citizens’ petition calling for a halt to the development plan in question. At the beginning, the clear majority of the 220 visitors had signaled with colored voting cards that they sympathized with the proposal of the citizen initiative. However, there were definitely still some undecideds.

"No matter how the burgers vote on 18. November goes out, we will continue to talk to each other", had already made a strong impression at the beginning. The 429 development plan process has already gone through several stages, and the city has shown a willingness to compromise, going from an initial 80 hectares of commercial space down to 54, of which 47 now remain. The city council decision of 26. September is binding as far as the companies to be located in the business park are concerned. 83 hectares on the muna site have been ecologically upgraded or turned into a recreational area, contaminated sites have been removed beforehand. "We from the BI have considerable doubts that anything new and sustainable is possible at all with this development plan. We are concerned with the question of what forest needs to be destroyed", braun, on the other hand, explained.

Discussions about unclear flat specifications

Some discussions relax this evening around terms and flat specifications. Both parties accused each other of trying to confuse the burghers. Einwag emphasized that it is not just about the 47 hectares of commercial land, but that 52 hectares of forest have been destroyed there, and that the total area affected is 70 hectares. Braun explained that this value is made up of commercial and traffic areas, but also tree fall lines, ditch bedding and flood ditches.

Monastery wall in thulba to be renovated

Monastery wall in thulba to be renovated

The state building authority is currently having the monastery wall at the provost church in thulba renovated along the staatsstrabe. This concerns the area of the parish hall, for which the free state is responsible. The further part of this wall in the area of the school building is property of the market community. This part is also to be renovated in the same move. This was the subject of a meeting of the municipal council. When the wall was moved, the wrong mortel (with lime) was used. Pigeons had also feasted on this mortel. The costs for the renovation of the wall, including the radiation, amount to 8000 euros net. The council has now approved the work as an afterthought.
The inner side of the wall is also to be renovated in september, here too the mortel is trickling out. Although also this mabnahme net with 7350 euro to beechagt, it should be made now, so alexander muth "if already worked it should be a clean solution. Both sides of the wall must be in order again."
In the meantime, all residents have now expressed their opinion on the draft plan for the upper and lower corners in oberthulba. In this context, the mayor praised the good understanding with the residents there. In the draft it was about the place and space design. In these narrow areas, some green planting was also to be created next to the 2.80-meter-wide roadway. As simone nurnberger from the oberthulba building administration also informed, a lot has already been achieved in joint discussions with the residents. The last agreement has now also been returned. "Will there be more work for the maintenance of the building yard??" Asked frank sieg (WG reith). The new squares will probably be maintained by the municipality, but the ground area around the houses will be taken over by the residents, which is why there were questionnaires, according to nurnberger.

Tendering in autumn
The council was also informed about the cost estimates. According to this, the expansion of the roads and the square design with canal and water were allowed to come to about 910,000 euros. The basic design is valued at 94,000 euros. The rate now agreed to the draft plan. However, the costs will not be charged to the budget until 2015 and 2016. The tender for the mabnahmen is to take place this fall, reported mayor gotthard schlereth (CSU-). The administration will now submit the request to the office for rural development.
