In frankendorf, a district of buttenheim, the district of bamberg is planning to redesign the through road (krba 12). With the support of the office for rural development of upper franconia (ALE oberfranken), the project will include not only a water-related development but also the design of the surroundings and the town square. According to information from the ALE upper franconia, a simple village renewal is possible for the frankendorf district. With regard to the amount of the subsidy, the ALE upper franconia is currently offering 55 percent of the eligible costs.
In 1981, frankendorf had been honored with the "gold" award as the national winner in the competition "our village should become more environmentally friendly. Even today, the village with its listed ensemble along the deichselbach stream is considered one of the most beautiful strabendorf villages in germany. This must be preserved and further developed, says buttenheim’s mayor michael karmann (zwdg/CSU) at the youngest market town council meeting. In particular, the protection of the most vulnerable road users, the pedestrians, should be at the top of the agenda. For example, there are initial considerations as to how a thoroughfare could be created. The market town of buttenheim had therefore already submitted an application for the initiation of a simple village renewal for frankendorf in february 2021 in order to be able to implement the corresponding measures.
The tramway planning of the district of bamberg is already underway. The contract for the accompanying design planning has not yet been awarded. This and possibly other contracts for necessary planning services have yet to be awarded. For this reason, the market of buttenheim has also applied to the ALE upper franconia for an early start of acceptance for all upcoming planning services.
"Energy dialogue" launched
During the meeting, mayor karmann also provided detailed information about the "bavaria energy dialog" theme weeks initiated by the bavarian ministry of economics. The theme weeks "mobility" will continue until 25 april. April, followed by the topic of "electricity" from april 12. Up to 25. July and the topic "warm" from 15. To 28. November. Proposals for regional participation are welcome and can be submitted to the municipal administration.
Stefan seufert , the initiator of the fund for climate protection and sustainable development of the european metropolitan region of nurnberg (EMN), presented his project to the market town council. With the "EMN climate pact", adopted by the council in 2018, the nurnberg metropolitan region has already made a clear commitment to climate protection before the new bavarian climate protection act comes into force. CO2CO2 emissions in the metropolitan region are to be reduced by up to 95 percent by the year 2050. The membership fee can be set by the municipalities themselves. Demand projects are financed by voluntary payments and donations from private individuals and companies in the metropolitan region. For seufert, joining can raise the profile of an exemplary climate protection municipality, make it possible to acquire additional financial resources "in the region for the region", from which local projects also benefit, and make local offers to citizens and companies who want to become visibly involved in climate protection without burdening their own administration. The council decided that buttenheim would participate in the fund for climate protection and sustainable development of the nurnberg metropolitan region, initially for a limited period of three years.V.
