After a tight schedule of as little as one year as possible, the municipality of Herrsching wants to adopt a green space concept.
That was the subject of Monday's council meeting.
– Anyone expecting a green planning concept for Herrsching in view of the agenda on Monday will have to be patient.
The commissioned office NRT from Marzling only presented itself and its approach in the municipal council meeting and took some homework home with it.
Dietmar Narr, one of four partners in the office, has already familiarized himself with the community.
Together with building yard manager Josef Mörtl and Christine Schleich, who was newly hired for the area of green planning, he rattled off neuralgic points.
"We got down to work," he assured.
But this has to begin now.
His office, which was awarded the Federal City Green Prize in 2022 for its “City on the Water – The Blue Ring” project in Tirschenreuth, relies on dialogue.
"We're only as good as you support us," Narr said.
Above all, the work relates to areas to which he has access, which are therefore owned by the municipality.
"And what we've seen is encouraging," he said.
He mentioned the lake promenade as an example.
The need for refurbishment is obvious and must be carried out with “the best possible consideration of tree protection”.
"There are enough tricks to help these behemoths," Narr said, referring to experts on his 30-strong team who knew.
For example, he suggested building in bottlenecks to give more space to root systems.
“Some cyclists have to dismount from time to time.
You have to discuss that.” He knew from experience that every measure would affect certain sensitivities.
When asked by Christiane Gruber (BGH), he assured that he wanted to take up the "sponge city" topic.
“We just call it something else – rain retention”.
His office would also like to get involved in the topic of tree protection regulations or Kienbach rehabilitation.
Narr defended the employees of the Weilheim Water Management Office, with whom he had been working constructively for a long time, when Christoph Welsch (Greens) asked whether the office had the courage to take a critical look at the authority "to prevent worse things from happening".
As reported, there is a lot of criticism of measures taken in the course of stream rehabilitation.
Narr assured that there were just as qualified employees there.
"I would therefore rather look for a togetherness," he said.
An evaluation of the inspection, all maps and development plans is planned before the first workshop can take place.
Christiane Gruber suggested that the date for this should be combined with the next closed meeting of the municipal council in June.
Before that, the committee wants to decide on the composition of the future working group on the environment, which should make a significant contribution to the development of the concept.
Anke Rasmussen (Greens) suggested including employees from the building yard and the building authority.
After the first workshop, an analysis and mapping would take place, on the basis of which priorities and goals would be set in a second workshop, explained Narr.
"Only then would I speak of planning."
Meanwhile, he asked questions that are close to his heart.
Anke Rasmussen picked this up and started with Kienbach, the area surrounding the station and the promenade.
Public playgrounds and flowering areas also have room for improvement.
Wolfgang Darchinger (Greens) took the opportunity to think again about orchards in the village.
Other topics were green space design statutes, care concepts and tree protection regulations.
Incidentally, the citizens' application to issue a new ordinance was subsequently approved.
