The municipality of Iffeldorf has a lot planned for this year.
The planning for a new residential building in place of the old hospital should begin.
Proposals are also expected as to how traffic can be calmed on Hofmark and Staltacher Straße.
Children's home, school and energy transition are also on the agenda.
Iffeldorf – A lot of work awaits the municipal council and mayor in Iffeldorf this year.
"We have big plans," says City Hall boss Hans Lang (SPD).
But he's not afraid.
If the cooperation in the municipal council continues as before, which he assumes, “we will achieve a lot”.
He emphasizes the “we” – that is important to him.
Plans for the old hospital: new construction of a residential building
A major project could be the new construction of a residential building in place of the old hospital on Alpenstraße, which was planned years ago - although this year the focus is on planning.
The building, which served as a hospital until 1925, is owned by the municipality, which uses it for social housing.
As it was once a hospital, the apartments are awkwardly laid out.
Four apartments are currently inhabited, two are empty because they are uninhabitable, says Lang.
The idea is to demolish the building and build a house in its place, including an underground car park and with up to twelve rental apartments of different sizes, for people who work in daycare, school or administration, for example, as well as for older people who are downsizing, but want to stay in town.
Like the apartment building on Rathausweg, this is to be financed via the municipal housing program.
However, the municipality must first prove to the government of Upper Bavaria that the house can no longer be renovated.
According to Lang, the issue of "living in old age" will continue to be worked on with vigour.
The Faltergatter could also be about new residential buildings.
Discussions are under way to initiate another development plan.
According to the mayor, that's still open.
First of all, there will be a discussion as to whether construction is possible at all because of the groundwater and surface water problems, and this will be discussed with the residents.
More security on Hofmark, Staltacher Straße and Alpenstraße
It should also be about the traffic on Hofmark, Staltacher Straße and Alpenstraße this year.
The municipality expects proposals from a commissioned Munich office.
For example, safety for schoolchildren, pedestrians and cyclists is to be increased on the Hofmark, where there is a lot of through and heavy goods traffic.
According to Lang, it would be ideal if the proposals for the Hofmark were to be implemented this year as part of the road rehabilitation planned by the state building authority.
The other two streets would be implemented later, after discussion with the residents, possibly together with the broadband expansion.
There were already considerations for the Staltacher Straße years ago.
However, they were not pursued further because the residents would have had to pay via the road expansion contribution statute ("Strabs").
The statute no longer exists.
Children's home and school need more space
At the children's home, the community wants to create the conditions with the church so that a third crèche group can start in the fall.
Planning is also underway this year for the school building in order to implement the entitlement to all-day care that will gradually apply from 2026.
The storage is to be expanded and the school administration to move there to create space for a school with seven classes (currently six) as well as lounges and a canteen for all-day care.
The municipality also wants to continue the energy revolution: with e-charging stations at the town hall, community center and hiking car park on Jägergasse as well as photovoltaics on its own buildings.
There are also considerations regarding an open space system.
The Energy Working Group is an important player in the energy transition.
As reported, there are efforts for an energy cooperative.

In addition, an idea is to be implemented in 2023 that received a lot of applause in the citizens’ assembly: a green waste collection point for small suppliers at the peat plant, supplemented by waste paper containers.
