to Better train and Internet connections, less bureaucracy, shorter planning times: The Brandenburg cities to expect outside of the bacon belt in the election year of 2019, from the country policy. You want to grow with newcomers from the metropolis of Berlin. "There is a Chance that the Brandenburg cities to benefit from the Hype of Berlin," said Friedhelm Boginski, mayor of the city of Eberswalde, Germany, and Chairman of the Brandenburg cities forum, on Friday at a press conference.
According to the words of Boginski, it is now commonplace that young families from Berlin specifically want to pull in more distant cities, in city hall, go and ask: "Is it at you apartments? There is daycare?“ There, the municipalities were situated mostly very good, but difficult is often the case with the transport links. It is in revenge for that of Brandenburg governments have failed in the last 25 years, "in time mobility to keep up," said Boginski. "The train, comes an influx of. This is now the highest railway.“
And Jens-Peter Golde mayor of Neuruppin and Chairman of the so-called city-chaplet Berlin-Brandenburg, described the necessary Standard: "We need a regional Express reliably in half an hour." A further prerequisite for an influx of quick Internet, broadband expansion, to be Frank Steffen, mayor of Beeskow (Oder-Spree), and Chairman of the Association of cities added to cores with the historic city.
"For many newcomers is the opportunity to work in a Home Office, a crucial question," he said. And further: "to Me, people say from Beeskow: I work in a large international group, it can also work at home. But the connection is not enough for the usual video-conferencing.“Meanwhile, cities in Brandenburg, positive migration balances with Berlin.Photo: PNN/Gitta Pieper-Meyer
On the other hand, the cities have greater need of space for decisions, less bureaucracy. "Don't think so centralized!", Steffen says. So not had to deal with but the upper monument protection authority, if Beeskow wool set up four charging stations for electric cars. "It's going to fail now, when in the summer of the Berlin comes in and his E-Smart here."
in Order to give their demands, have loaded the Boginski, Steffen and Golde represented three cities organizations at the end of April under the Motto "city air makes you free" to a city's development day. Because now also the concern that in the political debates about the future of rural society, especially to the development of the villages, the cities in the Background can come to grow in the cities.
"I always say: Eberswalde province. Also, we are rural,“ says Boginski. He pointed out that the cities of Falkensee and Bernau would have achieved in the closer surrounding area, in the meantime, the limit to growth. In the Ring a little further from Berlin more distant cities such as Eberswalde, there is still sufficient potential.More about

"We still have a place, but the infrastructure must be right," says Boginski. The takes to long. Since 1991, the need for bypass road in Eberswalde would be planned, now it was only in the planning approval process. "I'm soon 16 years mayor. I would like to create to make on the last day, at least the first cut of the spade. But even that no longer seems to work.“ Planning horizons for construction projects of 30 years or more were disastrous.
