A nature and technology park is to be built on a natural plot of land on the eastern outskirts of Zolling. Students could provide ideas for this.
Zolling – On Moosburger Straße in Zolling there is a small natural plot of land that is crossed by a stream and is currently not in use. Because the historic railway bridge with railway railing is also located there, the Zolling municipal council would like to upgrade the area and build a nature and technology park. Mayor Helmut Priller already has initial ideas for this: "The stream should be made tangible," he said – for example, with a Kneipp possibility. In general, the Flitzinger Bach, which "runs inconspicuously through Zolling", is to be made accessible to the population.
In addition, they want to try to get a rail bus. There could be a small technology museum in it - in memory of the Holledauer Bockerl, which used to drive here. The dilapidated railway railing is to be made safe again, seating is to be built and a pedestrian and cycle path connection is to be created. In addition, the area should be barrier-free.

Ideas for implementation and initial plans for it could, according to the administration's wish, be provided by architecture students at the TU Weihenstephan-Triesdorf. "This is only possible if we hold a competition," said Priller. The advantage would be that not one architect created a plan, but in the best case you get many different designs. The mayor is hoping for eight to ten presentations. From this, the best ideas can then be implemented. Because: "We are allowed to mix the ideas," says Priller.
Planning principles presented
The municipality has already prepared an application folder with planning principles and specifications – and presented it to the local councillors on Tuesday. The committee was impressed by the presentation – and the local councillors immediately came up with further ideas. Andrea Bachmaier (CSU) asked for a "water feature for children" to be included in the documents as a guideline. Alexander Hildebrandt could imagine a bicycle charging station at the future park, and "some form of lighting is nice". It is important to the head of the town hall himself that the two trees planted on the site are preserved: the fluttering elm, which was planted on the occasion of the 1275th anniversary of Zolling in 2019, and the European beech, which was planted last year for the 50th birthday of the Independent Citizens of Zolling (UBZ).
Stephan Wöhrl (CSU) wanted to know whether such a competition would be lucrative for students at all. Priller has no qualms about this. On the one hand, "the students have to give something", on the other hand, "a prize is offered". Thus, a total prize money of 5000 euros would be set, whereby the winner would receive 2500 euros, second place would be endowed with 1500 euros and for third place there would be 1000 euros. Now, however, it is first of all necessary to "make the project palatable to the students". They will therefore "apply" to the students – and hope that they will accept this challenge.
The municipal council agreed with the planning of a nature and technology park, the announcement of a student competition and the proposed prize money and unanimously approved the procedure.
