Town Hall Rehabilitation: CDU calls for clarification and brings deletion of individual measures into play

The emerging cost trend in the renovation of the town hall, the CDU Group is of great concern. In this context, it does not exclude the possibility of deleting individual redevelopment measures, as Johannes Dyhringer, city councilor and CDU spokesman in the Building Committee, emphasizes. It is important that in the end the citizens have a functional city hall at their disposal.??We are very concerned about the current developments in town hall renovation. Already 2018, we have therefore proposed to fix the budget for the renovation. Unfortunately, this has not been supported by all parties, "said CDU leader, Burkhard Weber. For the CDU, it is now important that the ongoing cost calculations be completed and submitted to the city council. It may also be examined to what extent the additional costs can be compensated by the monument protection by means of subsidies. Johannes Dyhringer explains: "Only on this basis can we assess whether individual remedial measures are meaningful and economical. For the CDU, it is not excluded to cancel individual planned remedial measures. Decisive may be solely that the citizens at the end again have a functional city hall with cultural center and the employees meaningfully equipped workstations are available. He also called for a review of whether there are delays in the timetable as a result of the current developments. In the opinion of the other parties, Group President Weber said: "In order to find a quick and sensible solution now, we must act together. It is not enough to say that this is not the case without suggesting an alternative solution. With such a big and important project like the Town Hall refurbishment, we have to tackle the upcoming challenges across the board! "Regarding the other urban buildings and structures, the CDU faction once again highlights the need for ongoing entertainment. "It must not happen again that the single-city building is so neglected in the conversation over the years!" Concluded Weber. [...]

CDU applies for funds: Historical viaduct should be preserved

The CDU faction in the City Council Bocholt is requesting for the next Council meeting at the 9. October to re-activate the amount of 25.000 Euro for the renovation of the historic viaduct. Overall, the Barloer Heimatverein Vör would like to invest its Boorle 99.000 Euro in the project.? In the context of our summer tour of the CDU parliamentary group, we also took a closer look at the historic viaduct in Barlo. As we have noted, the 1880 completed bridge structure is severely at risk of decay. Without appropriate security measures, the viaduct will disintegrate in the foreseeable future. That must not happen! ??, RainerVenhorst, CDU city councilor for Barlo, makes clear. But this would not only make Bocholt lose a historic structure. Venhorst: ?? Via the Viaduct also leads one of the busiest bicycle routes in the neighboring Dutch community. Should the building disintegrate, then this route would have to be closed. ?? The Barloer Heimatverein wants to preserve the only surviving viaduct in a radius of 30 km for posterity. Already in the year 2012 the city Bocholt provided the home club 25.000 Euro for the renovation. However, due to open legal questions and personnel changes in the home club these funds were not retrieved in the following years. Meanwhile, all legal requirements have been clarified and the homeland association is following the project again with consistency. Their initiative also promises to promote 65 percent of the total cost of the LEADER program. The Heimatverein wants to invest a total of around 99.000 Euro in the project. Franz-Josef Groß-Hardt from Heimatverein explains: "In addition to the renovation of the viaduct, we are also planning demonstration platforms on both sides of the bridge. The visitors should be invited to stay. With the help of showcases, we also want to bring the significance and uniqueness of the building closer. "The CDU City Councilor Rainer Venhorst praises this commitment of the homeland association:" It is not self-evident that the home association wants to strengthen the viaduct and tackle some of its own efforts . ?? Venhorst, who is also chairman of the Building Committee, therefore demands: "We should reactivate the necessary funds in the amount of 25.000 Euro in the city budget to support this work of the Home Association. Thus, we not only get a historic building in Bocholt, but also guarantee that the important cycle route between Bocholt and Winterswijk remains. [...]

CDU parliamentary group for overwriting of the old fire brigade area to the Ewibo / JU and MIT have concerns

Die CDU-Fraktion Bocholt wird der Überschreibung des alten Feuerwehrgeländesan die Ewibo zustimmen. Dies entschieden die Fraktionsmitglieder nachintensiven Diskussionen mit einer klaren Mehrheit. Die Ewibo soll sich sostärker im Bereich des bezahlbaren Wohnens engagieren. Vor der Sitzungsprachen sich die Junge Union (JU) Bocholt und die Mittelstandsvereinigung(MIT) im Kreis Borken in einem gemeinsamen Schreiben an dieFraktionsmitglieder für eine öffentliche Ausschreibung und damit gegen dieÜberschreibung an die Ewibo aus.„In Bocholt herrscht ein hoher Bedarf an bezahlbaren Wohnraum. SozialerWohnungsbau ist daher dringend erforderlich. Die letzten Jahre haben jedochgezeigt, dass dieser Bedarf vom freien Markt nicht in ausreichendem Maßebedient wird“, stellt Burkhard Weber, Vorsitzender der CDU-Fraktion, festund ergänzt: „Um den Wohnungsmarkt effizient zu steuern und die Mieten inBocholt bezahlbar zu halten, brauchen wir als Stadt einen direkten Zugriff.Mit einem Engagement der städtischen Tochter Ewibo in diesem Bereich könnenwir Einfluss auf den sozialen Wohnungsbau nehmen und damit bezahlbarenWohnraum für junge Familien und Menschen mit geringem Einkommen dauerhaft inBocholt ermöglichen. Damit die Ewibo diese Aufgabe auch erfüllen kann,benötigt sie entsprechende Grundstücke wie das alte Feuerwehrgelände.“Auch die Junge Union Bocholt und die Mittelstandsvereinigung im Kreis Borkenerkennen einen hohen Bedarf an bezahlbaren Wohnraum in Bocholt. „Für dieUnternehmen ist es in Zeiten des Fachkräftemangels von enormer Bedeutung,dass in einer Stadt bezahlbarer Wohnraum vorhanden ist. Denn auch dieBocholter Unternehmen stehen in starker Konkurrenz um Fachkräfte.Verfügbarer Wohnraum ist dabei zu einem entscheidenden Faktor geworden“,betonen die stellvertretenden Vorsitzenden der MIT, Silke Sommers und WernerVogel. Christian Stevens, stellvertretender JU-Vorsitzender, ergänzt: „Fürdie Zukunft unserer Stadt ist es wichtig, dass sie für junge Familien undStudenten attraktiv bleibt. Hierfür ist die Verfügbarkeit von bezahlbarenWohnungen von herausragender Bedeutung.“Um diese Ziele zu erreichen, sprechen sich die beiden CDU-Vereinigungenjedoch für die öffentliche Ausschreibung des alten Feuerwehrgeländes aus.„Eine Vergabe des Grundstücks im Rahmen eines städtebaulichen Wettbewerbsbietet unserer Stadt viele Vorteile. Durch einen festgeschriebenen Anteilvon 20 Prozent Sozialwohnungen ist dabei ebenfalls sichergestellt, dassweitere kostengünstige und sozial verträgliche Wohnungen in Bocholtentstehen“, erklärt Christian Stevens. Für die MIT ergänzen Silke Sommersund Werner Vogel: „Als Mittelstandsvereinigung haben wir uns deutlich dafürausgesprochen, das Grundstück der alten Feuerwache durch einenstädtebaulichen Wettbewerb dem freien Markt zugänglich zu machen. Denn auchdie Bocholter Wohnungsbaugesellschaften sind auf der Suche nach freienFlächen, auf denen sie ihre Projekte verwirklichen können. Diese haben inder Vergangenheit bereits unter Beweis gestellt, dass sie Bocholtstädtebaulich voranbringen können.“Die Hauptargumente der JU und MIT für den städtebaulichen Wettbewerbbeziehen sich jedoch auf die Finanzen der Stadt Bocholt. Sommers, Stevensund Vogel machen deutlich: „In den nächsten Jahren stehen eine Vielzahl vonProjekten vor der Haustüre, die allesamt mit hohen Kosten verbunden sind.Diese reichen von der Sanierung der Schulen über die Aufwertung derInnenstadt bis hin zum Bau des Nordrings. Gleichzeitig besagt die Prognosedes Kämmerers, dass die Stadt Bocholt im Jahr 2020 ein Defizit von 8,8Millionen Euro aufweisen wird. Vor diesem Hintergrund ist es aus unsererSicht nicht sinnvoll, das alte Feuerwehrgelände der Ewibo zu überschreiben.Durch eine Vergabe im Rahmen eines städtebaulichen Wettbewerbs können wirdieselben Ziele erreichen, ohne den städtischen Haushalt mit Millionensummenzu strapazieren. Denn durch den Verkauf an ein Wohnungsbauunternehmen könntedie Stadt nicht nur eine siebenstellige Summe einnehmen, auch eine weitereMillionensumme, die für die Bebauung durch die Ewibo erforderlich wäre,könnte eingespart werden. Wir sollten daher zunächst versuchen, bezahlbarenWohnraum durch die freie Vergabe mit festgeschriebenenSozialwohnungsanteilen zu schaffen, bevor wir die Ewibo mit nichtvorhandenem Geld zu einem Wohnungsunternehmen ausbauen.“Die CDU-Fraktion ist jedoch nach langen Beratungen mit einer klaren Mehrheitzu einem anderen Entschluss gekommen. Fraktionsvorsitzender Weber: „Wirdanken der JU und MIT für ihr Positionspapier. Ausführlich haben wir uns mitden Argumenten beschäftigt und über sie diskutiert. In der Gesamtabwägungist die Fraktion zu dem Entschluss gekommen, dass das Ziel – bezahlbarenWohnraum in Bocholt zu schaffen, dauerhaft zu erhalten und bei der Belegungder Wohnungen eine gesunde Durchmischung zu erreichen – durch eine freieVergabe nicht in gleichem Maße erreicht werden kann. Da die Ewibo eine100-prozentige Tochter der Stadt ist, haben wir einen direkten Einfluss aufdie Vermietung und den Mietpreis. Auch erhalten wir langfristigeSteuerungsmöglichkeiten, indem das Grundstück im Vermögen derStadtgesellschaft bleibt. Im Gegensatz zu anderen Wohnungsbauunternehmenmuss die Ewibo darüber hinaus keinen Gewinn mit Sozialwohnungenerwirtschaften. Wir als Fraktion erwarten jedoch auch, dass die Entwicklungder Ewibo übertragenen Grundstücke, sofern wirtschaftlich sinnvoll,gemeinsam mit einem lokalen Partner erfolgt.“ […]

Can students in Bocholt soon fill up their water bottles with water dispensers? This beats at least the CDU faction Bocholtvor and asks the administration to examine to what extent this is possible. Very often children and young people drink too little. This is especially true in the hot summer days, as we have last experienced ??, states the CDU City Councilor Barbara Fölting. As the German Society for Nutrition writes, should be provided to the students throughout the entire school day water.Barbara Fölting this: ??
