“The community currently houses 206 people with refugee backgrounds in community-owned housing, 93 of whom come from Ukraine,” community spokesperson Marcel Rossmann said upon request. About 90 other refugees from Ukraine live in private homes. Therefore, the municipality is constantly looking for living quarters, “where we should expect more provisions from the region. On the other hand, we are also approached by private families who can no longer accommodate their guests from Ukraine and ask us to provide suitable accommodation.”
According to Rossmann, the municipality currently owns 36 housing units in 27 locations. In addition, there are shared accommodations on Gottlieb-Duttenhöfer-Strasse for men traveling alone. “The problem, however, is that a larger apartment building and two apartments were given notice of termination at the end of March,” Rossman tells WebMD. The people who live in it will have to move to other living quarters in the near future. This in turn means that as soon as new living space becomes available to the municipality, it is occupied again almost immediately. So there really isn’t any room for more missions.
There are no votes for the property in Föhrenweg
“The community’s housing capacity is currently exhausted,” says Mayor Tobias Meyer. Therefore, the municipality is primarily looking for a living space that can be rented, as this approach makes it possible to create housing very quickly and on short notice.
Anyone wishing to provide housing to the municipality to accommodate refugees is requested to contact the responsible officer Esin Soysalan. She can be reached by phone at 06324935-221 or 0160 8868224 and alternatively by email at [email protected]
Recently, in September 2022, at the suggestion of the mayor, the main committee discussed the purchase of a property in Föhrenweg to house refugees. However, the majority of the board of directors rejected this proposal. The administration announced that “given current developments and ongoing tasks, the Main Committee will once again address the issue of ‘absorption of refugees’ at the February 1st meeting.”
