The CSU member of the state parliament Alexander Flierl met with mayor Reinhard Kreuzer and deputy Andreas Hopfner for an information meeting in the Schönsee town hall. The support of the municipalities by the Free State of Bavaria in general and the local challenges in particular were the focus of this working visit, according to a press release.
According to a press release, the topics of living in Schönseer Land for every situation and every age, as well as the necessary infrastructure, took up a lot of space. The importance of the local social institutions was emphasized, which also create important jobs – for example the “Haus Jägerhof” of Dr. Loew Social Services and the Lindau social therapeutic facility. Integration and inclusion would also be a big step forward in rural areas, so it is crucial to maintain and strengthen both institutions. The shortly available feasibility study for the construction of an old people’s and nursing home in Schönsee would, if implemented, lead to a real addition to the care offer and age-appropriate living in the region.
In addition, topics such as the ubiquitous vacancy rate were discussed, which, according to Mayor Kreuzer, is showing a positive trend. For many properties, new living options are being considered, it said. The participants in the discussion agreed that one of the future tasks would be to ensure the local supply of everyday things. This could be supported by funding for regional initiatives and regional marketing.
The expansion of the state road between Gaisthal and Schönsee, which has already started, was highlighted as an important infrastructure measure in the field of road construction. The role of the Centrum Bavaria Bohemia as coordinator, network and contact person in the cultural field was underlined by both the MP Flierl and the two mayors. Alexander Flierl assured his support for good financial resources from the Free State.
According to Flierl, the gastronomy and tourism industry, which has been badly shaken by the corona, is also at the center of attention in Bavarian politics. He emphasized that the area in and around Schönsee could score points with its cross-country skiing, hiking and biking trails as well as the attractive landscape and that “vacation at home” was trendy – these opportunities could be used, according to Flierl.
At the end of the conversation, the constituency member of the city of Schönsee confirmed good prospects for the future and – as in the past – agreed to help. The challenges for the region are known, so Flierl’s summary. Solutions will be found with the options made available by the state parliament.
