Brauhaus project threatens to fail: Social list Bocholt calls for municipal event hall for Bocholt

Press releaseBrauhaus project threatens to fail: Social list Bocholt calls for municipal event hall for BocholtNachdem the brewery project seems to be threatened with failure, raises the voters community Social List Bocholt again the question of whether on the Kubaai site an event hall can be integrated to the need for events for example for school and club celebrations, corporate events and comedy events. The voters' community has submitted an appropriate council request to the mayor's office, Peter Nebelo, which they will meet in the main committee meeting on 11. Rainer Sauer (Chairman) now wants to know if the administration sees the need for an event hall and how it now wants to deal with it and explains: "A city of the order of magnitude like Bocholt with 73000 inhabitants may not look at itself the Bocholt citizens must look for event locations. If the city wants to keep its inhabitants together and provide you with a forum for leisure and culture, it has to be active here and act as a motor and function. So far, the focus has been more on major projects that citizens are rather opposed to. Even the Kubaai Bridge for around 2,5 million euros is not well received by the population. And, of course, the renovation of the town hall could have turned out to be a few numbers smaller, for some 45 million euros. In the future, politics and administration must see the whole picture when it comes to distributing taxpayers' money. People in our city should not feel any longer that "there is money for everything, but it's about the common good, there are neither resources nor funds available." To a family and citizen-friendly Bocholt also includes an event hall. To do this, the administration must now become active and tackle this as the top priority. A "no" would be a wrong and devastating signal here. After all, Bocholt is a city and not a village. Also, the provision of an event hall is a contribution to business development and so practically a must. In the main committee meeting, the Social Lisle also wants to know whether alternative city theater could be expanded. Or: What other possibilities exist to set up an event hall? "[...]

Social list Bocholt calls: children's playground with green area for the city center

Social list Bocholt demands: Children's playground with green area for the city center The voter community Social list Bocholt is in favor of more residence and dwell quality in the inner city area. In addition, the voter community in the middle of the city center demands a children's playground with a green area. Councilor Bärbel Sauer has submitted a request / test request for the Council meeting on Wednesday, adding: "In the inner city area, more residence and dwellings have to be created. This requires further consideration and implementation of measures that enable all visitors, including our children, to have a respectable and eventful stay. The city center is also a social space. Here it lacks a children's playground, which is visible and centrally located. The planned playground equipment in the "Integrated City Action Plan" is indeed a step in the right direction, but does not fulfill this requirement. The playground in the area of ​​the community college is to be renewed, but this playground is not centrally located and is hidden outside the pedestrian area. A green area with an integrated children's playground would of course be an ideal solution and thus equally a contribution to climate protection. In the search for a suitable location and the implementation of the children's playground parents and children should be involved. So the project would be successful from the beginning a playground with green area downtown. "[...]

Social list Bocholt calls: Free rides on the city buses

Following the model of the city of Monheim, now also calls the voters community Social List Bocholt free rides on the city buses. Councilor Bärbel Sauer has submitted a council questionnaire to the main and financial committee meeting on Wednesday (26 June), saying: "The council of the city of Monheim is very likely to decide that public transport may be used free of charge for a period of three years. This is environmentally and climate friendly. Above all, it facilitates and encourages citizens to change from private cars to buses and trains. The costs (compensatory payments) for this, amounting to approx. 3 million euros annually, will be borne by the city of Monheim. Considering the millions of payments for the KuBAaI (12,7 million), the City Hall (45 million) and soon the priority list, this would only be a small amount by the city each year Bocholt would have to pay. How the annual compensation payments for Bocholt - because of the larger population - would be, the administration can only answer itself. "Bärbel Sauer wants to know from the mayor Peter Nebelo therefore, whether this project would be something for Bocholt, whether the administration advocates if Bocholt Try this project on a trial basis for a year. And: What would be incurred for the city of Bocholt annually payments by taking over the cost of the tickets of the city bus GmbH. The session starts at 17 clock in the city hall, Berliner Platz 1.

The town of Bocholt has applied on the 380 square meter bed in the area of ​​the traffic island Münsterstraße / Lönsstraße limestone gravel, where later flowers are planted.Rainer Sauer, chairman of the Social List Bocholt, and the environmental policy spokesman Torsten Wollberg consider this not a good idea and explain on this: "For Bocholt as a climate community this" gravel planting "has devastating effects. Because it is a question of time, then further gravel front gardens will be created in Bocholt - according to the motto "The city makes it happen". We urge the city to remove the gravel and use natural topsoil instead. Last week, the Council asserted that the city is doing a lot for climate protection. When looking closely, but sometimes looks different. Also, this action is a completely wrong signal and climate protection counterproductive.Furthermore, it states in the message that this is also a citizenship application in preparation, that in future no more ballast stones may be applied to public land.

Social list Bocholt demands: Bocholt should proclaim the climate emergency

Social list Bocholt calls: Bocholt should proclaim the climate emergency The voters community Social list Bocholt wants that the advice of the city Bocholt the example of Konstanz and many other municipalities like last Kleve following and the climatic emergency calls out. For this purpose, the voter community on Monday has submitted to Mayor Peter Nebelo a corresponding citizen application, which has the content that the city council should decide: "The mayor of the city Bocholt calls the climate emergency (climate emergency is a symbolic term without legal basis). The City Council wants to meet Bocholt as a climate municipality and its diverse tasks and the development of inhabitants. In order to make this sustainable and climate-friendly, the city council passed the following resolution: The city of Bocholt- declares the climate emergency and recognizes the mitigation of the climate crisis and its serious consequences as a task of the highest priority.- recognizes that the measures and planning so far are insufficient to limit global warming to 2050 to the targeted 1,5 degrees Celsius.- now takes into account the impact on the climate in any decision. Those solutions are preferred that take the greatest possible account of climate, environmental and species protection and mitigate climate change and its consequences. For this purpose, the best options for climate, environmental and species protection should be presented and evaluated on the basis of the best possible solution for all proposals for a resolution. - calls on the mayor to report annually to the city council and the public on progress and difficulties in reducing emissions and draw conclusions from this. - calls on other municipalities, the federal states and the Federal Republic of Germany to follow the example of Constance, Klever and Bocholt and declare the climate emergency. In particular, he draws the attention of the federal and state governments to the fact that full compliance with the climate protection targets at the municipal level is not yet possible under the current framework conditions. Only a complete dismantling of existing subsidies for fossil fuels, a socially equitable CO2 pricing, a fundamentally changed transport policy and a climate protection compliant promotion of social housing would provide the much needed foundation here.- also calls on the municipal investment companies / city daughters, the above apply the above-mentioned procedures and increasingly deal with opportunities in climate protection. The city council will be reported before the end of the year. In addition, the climate target in Bocholt is adapted to the Paris climate targets. This means a far-reaching climate neutrality (0,3t / person) before the year 2035. The current climate measures are based on this goal and will be supplemented accordingly. "Councilor Bärbel Sauer and Torsten Wollberg, environmental policy spokesman of the voters community, hope for broad support of all council groups and lone fighters and explain:" Almost every week, hundreds of thousands of people throughout Germany demonstrate in the Fridays- for future movement against the climate and environmental policy of the Federal Government. Also in Bocholt demonstrated recently repeated and impressive young people in the city center. The aim of the movement is that the Bundestag and the Federal Government should immediately adopt effective measures and enforce them consistently, so that the impending climate catastrophe can be averted. The students are expressing what we all should be aware of: It is high time to act. "The warming of the earth must be limited, the world community in Paris 2015 has defined a clear target corridor. This international treaty must now also be implemented at the municipal level, because the "climate emergency is bitter reality": death, displacement and hunger - consequences of climate change, such as the new, now 25. Even if Bocholt is a climate municipality, the current climate goals and measures of the city of Bocholt are far from sufficient to implement the Paris Agreement on Climate Change at the local level. Accordingly, the city's efforts to protect the climate must be accelerated. Konstanz and many other cities such as the neighboring town of Kleve make it vor.Ratsfraktion Bärbel Sauer and Torsten Wollberg hope to broad approval of their citizenship application. [...]

Administrative templates for the citizens' applications of the social list Bocholt not really justified: Opportunities for "public transport day with car-free city center" are good

Social list Bocholt: Administrative submissions to the citizen requests highly questionableChancen for "public transport day with car-free city center" stand wellBis on the request for "public transport day with car-free city center", which is to be put back first still, wants the city administration that the committee for suggestions and complaints all citizens' applications of the voters community Social list Bocholt refuses. This is evident from the templates for the respective applications, which can be viewed since Friday in the Council of the City of Bocholt. Council meetings must be transparent According to the Council meetings will not be transmitted live on the Internet in the future. Rainer Sauer (Chairman) is astonished by the rejection recommendation: "Those who are in favor of public participation and transparency must also offer citizens the opportunity to allow them access to the Council sessions so that they can themselves pursue debates and votes on local political issues , The chairs in the visitor's gallery are mostly empty. In social media, however, "hot" council decisions are often discussed. This alone shows that there is interest, but the way to the Council meetings in the city hall is perceived only slightly for different reasons. Bocholt is thus one of the few municipalities that leaves its citizens out. That's in 21. Century is not exactly progressive and an indictment in terms of democracy. "Property tax B simply freeze also a home exchange to exchange" large for small apartments "or vice versa, and freezing the property tax B for the next 20 years recommends the administration reject. For curiosities the social list also some reasons of administration. For example, the freezing of property tax B would be neither budgetary nor permissible and non-binding. Rainer Sauer countered: "However, if one looks at the decision on the brewing house, the Council has decided here a brewhouse subsidy, which should be paid for at least twenty years. Why should the property tax B in reverse then not be frozen by Council decision over several years as well. That smells almost after tax increase, in any case can be assumed that after the local election 2020 the property tax in the future could be further changed upwards. The impact would be fatal for owners and tenants and would also further reduce purchasing power. "Cheap city bus rides good for climate protectionFor the required one-euro ticket for trips by city bus supposedly formal reasons against it, to the extent that the Council for not should be responsible. Completely absurdly the voters community finds the opinion of the administration to: "Everyone talks about mobility and climate protection, which could be improved by cheaper trips with the city bus, but in the implementation is pinched." And: For the planned catering on the Aasee there should be no tender give. "This kind of procedure is impossible, because this is public land and an equal opportunity for competitors is excluded from the outset," Rainer Sauer mocked about the way to proceed here in the back room.Neue gastronomy on the Aasee yes, planned location noIn addition, the administration states in its recommendation that the new food court should be built opposite the Textile Museum on Uhlandstraße (Ufertreppe, west bank). The Social List, on the other hand, states: "This would make the view of the Aasee only limited or even impossible, and that is completely unacceptable. This would not be an appreciation for Bocholt, but rather a significant limitation of the view of the Aasee. After all, the town planners of the time planned this area so deliberately. "The Social List had admitted the request for an event gastronomy itself to the Council, which was then unanimously approved by the Council. "However, it must not be so that the administration can now go over everything," emphasizes Rainer Sauer.Gute prospects for "public transport day" has a chance, however, the citizens' application "public transport day with car-free city center." This application should be adjourned first. In the administrative bill it says: "The realization of a car-free city center on the public transport day brings with it traffic law problems, which must be planned accordingly and checked for concrete feasibility. The results of the mobility concept should therefore be awaited before deciding on the application. If you decide on a public transport day in the year 2020 in the context of the conclusion of the mobility concept, from the point of view of the administration in coordination with the StadtBus GmbH the 22. September, since 2000 has had this car-free day throughout the EU. Around this day, further actions around the car-free mobility would offer. "In addition, the social list is pleased, even on the date, although they date as the 6. June 2020 has suggested.For a social, family-friendly and mobile BocholtThe citizen applications of the Social List Bocholt be in the public meeting of the Committee for suggestions and complaints at the 28. May at 17 clock in the townhouse, Berliner Platz 1, treated. "We will try to ensure that the committee members of the Councils vote in favor of our motions. Because they are a real chance to make Bocholt more social, family-friendly and mobile, "reads the statement in the social list.Foto (left to right) Monika Laumann, Norbert Brandes, Bärbel Sauer, Torsten Wollberg and Anita Lohberg at a public consultation campaign in the Bocholter Downtown.

Town Hall Monument: Inhabitants request should bring clarity

Town Hall Monument: Inquiry should bring clarity for the social list Bocholt the topic of monument protection Rathaus Bocholt is not yet finished. "After all, it's about a lot of money and the possible waste of taxpayer money," emphasizes Rainer Sauer (Chairman), who has now submitted a request for residency to Mayor Peter Nebelo. Let us remember: In March 2017 was announced in the construction committee that the Town Hall already November 2016 is a listed building. The opposition period had already passed. Demolishing the town hall and building a new town hall there or elsewhere was therefore no longer possible. In writing to the townspeople it says: "Dear Mr. Nebelo, the town hall's highly controversial monument protection still raises many questions. If the Council and the public had been informed much earlier, it would certainly not cost 45 millions of euros for the upcoming town hall renovation. The resulting damage can not be repaired. However, to this day no one has taken responsibility, at least not seriously, for example, by personal consequences. As far as I am aware, many responsible administrative bodies have already been involved in the monument registration procedure - and not only through the official decision of the Lower Monument Authority of the 02. November 2016. "Rainer Sauer and other comrades want in the city council meeting am12. Do you know the following: Do you already know 2015 about the monument check? Why the city council and the public were not informed that 2015 already had an "order for a temporary protection"? and the public was not informed that there was already a draft letter for "protection of the undercover" in the middle of 2016 ▪ Whether the council of elders at the 26.01.2017 was informed about the monument registration ▪ Whether the management committee of the 13.02.2017 was informed about the monument registration? is to inform Nebelo and the administration about the current status of the town hall (costs, schedule, implementation of temporary branches).

Press release: Social list Bocholt calls: Street workers for the Ravardi district

Bocholt, 16.04.2019Social list Bocholt calls: Streetworker for the RavardiviertelThe voters community Social list Bocholt holds nothing of it, if now after the unusual and heavy dispute of the weekend all panic or represent the Ravardi quarter as "small Chicago". That did not deserve the pub mile and the mostly peaceful visitors, it says in the statement. However, in their citizens' application the electorate community again demands the use of street workers for the purpose of de-escalation and for a peaceful coexistence of visitors in the area of ​​Ravardiviertel. Rainer Sauer (Chairman) explains: "In the Ravardiviertel there are always disputes and attacks among the visitors , Early in the morning at the 14. April came after police report to a particularly serious dispute, which must not be repeated. Of course, the regulatory authorities are responsible for this. However, many incidents can be avoided if preventive measures, such as the use of street workers, are made in advance. Both together, police and the use of street workers, will in the long run lead to the disputes in the Ravardi quarter decline. "On the other hand, the Social List refuses the use of video surveillance systems in the inner city area. "It is difficult to see that visitors are being filmed while partying with friends and privacy is being softened," emphasizes Rainer Sauer. These were quick shots, which belonged in the filing trash and in the matter would not really help. [...]

Social list Bocholt calls: More commitment of Ewibo for affordable housing

The voters community Social List Bocholt sees the Ewibo (development and operating company of the city Bocholt mbh) in the duty to engage significantly more for more affordable housing. In addition to a letter of intent, the Ewibo has so far moved hardly anything, so the voter community. Councilor Bärbel Sauer therefore wants in the Council meeting next Wednesday (10.April) clear information about the commitment of Ewibo - a wholly owned subsidiary of the city Bocholt - in the housing market and explains: "Affordable apartments are in short supply in Bocholt. Although the Ewibo is full-bodied proclaimed that since 2016 as a municipal company to contribute to provide more affordable housing for people living in Bocholt, but in fact there is hardly any movement in the Bocholt housing market in this regard. In addition to the planned 80 residential units on the Heutingsweg, the Ewibo only bought residential buildings and thus increased its inventory of existing properties. That is clearly not enough. "Bärbel Sauer now wants to know in concrete terms at the Council meeting how much affordable housing / housing units will be provided by the Ewibo in addition to the next three years. How the rent per square meter will be. And how the current development in social housing construction looks in general in Bocholt.

Also and especially to give this topic even more attention and weighting and finally set such a sign for climate protection and environmental protection - and permanently. There are already many and commendable activities of organizations, clubs, environmental associations, student demos "Fridays for Future", Association Edible City and the city of Bocholt.

Press release: Social list Bocholt demands: to submit a report on the KuBAaI allocation for residential development of the local authority and the district government for inspection and comment

Social list Bocholt demands: report on the KuBAaI allocation to the housing development of the local authority and the district government for inspection and to submit opinion The voters community Social List Bocholt calls on the city top, for the short assessment of the allocation of housing on the KuBAaI site and the decision of the jury express. In addition, the voter community, the local authority and the district government will examine the short report. The city has been in possession of a report for several days. In it, they are accused of "serious legal shortcomings." Councilor Bärbel Sauer has to the topic for the main and financial committee meeting on 27. Submitted a council request to the mayor, Peter Nebelo, explaining: "The administration has received a short report for the award of the housing development on the KuBAaI site. After that, the process seems extremely questionable. This of course triggers speculation in the public. Therefore, I believe that it is urgent for the administration to express its views on all the concerns expressed in it and on the extremely problematic legal aspects. Also and especially with regard to the city council meeting at the 10. April, in which then the decision on the award is to take place. Financially involved in the KuBAaI major project is also the state of NRW and thus the district government. For the purpose of confidence-building measures would also be helpful if at least the district government - but also the municipal supervision - receive the short report with the request for an opinion. "In the council question, Councilor Bärbel Sauer wants to know whether the administration intends the short report of the local authority and / or the district government for inspection and comment. And: Whether the administration intends to, before the decision by the city council meeting on 10. April, for the short report to make a statement for the city council. If so, whether the administration will respond fully to the short report and comment on all points in it. Finally, whether the administration intends to give to the previous statement, nor a separate statement on the short report to the citizens. From my iPhone sent [...]

Press releaseSocial list for greening instead of stone and ballast gardens More and more front gardens are replacing stones and gravel with conventional greening. The Wählergemeinschaft Social List Bocholt now wants to know from the city, which opinion the administration has to stone and gravel front gardens.

Councilor Bärbel Sauer and Torsten Wollberg (environmental policy spokesman) have now submitted a council request to mayor Peter Nebelo. They consider the topic to be extremely important and declare: "In Bocholt, the trend can be observed that increasingly front gardens are being designed with stones and gravel. This is not an alternative to conventional greening. Of course, the citizens themselves decide how they design their front gardens. However, habitats are permanently lost. The already dwindling biodiversity continues to diminish and air quality also suffers - especially in densely populated residential areas. The administration can regulate and act here to avoid further such stone and gravel gardens. One possibility would be to provide wild plants and / or topsoil to the citizens, for example, free of charge or through a small fee. "The Council meeting, which deals with the council's request, will be held next Wednesday at 17 in the town hall, Berliner Platz 1 , instead of. [...]
