Hochstadt in a completely different light

When the city of hochstadt burns off its coarse cultural fireworks at the end of july/beginning of august, the people of hochstadt and their guests will be in a state of blackness, especially at night. Along the culture mile, the city will present itself in a completely new light from the kellerberg to the fortuna culture factory.
Lecturer michael muller from the coburg university of applied sciences and a team of five students want to show how a city can be put in the right light without using conventional street lighting.

Impressive examples

In its most recent meeting, the city council commissioned muller and his team to illuminate hochstadt’s cultural mile – initially for a limited period of time from probably 3. Until 12. August. Susanne gabler of the fortuna kulturfabrik demonstrated to the city council members what this could look like with a series of impressive photos of objects that muller had already staged.

But it doesn’t have to remain with the temporary illumination in hochstadt. The city councilors agreed to see the culture mile as a dress rehearsal for a permanent illumination of the city center. The idea of switching off the conventional street lighting and illuminating certain objects to bring sufficient light to the streets and walkways was well received.

N-ergie aktiengesellschaft continues to focus on photovoltaics in the expansion of renewable energies: since november 2019, it has been building a new solar power plant in mainbernheim with an output of 3.4 megawatts peak. According to the company’s press release, the last modules are currently being assembled, and operations are scheduled to begin as early as this summer.

The new plant is the second construction phase of the photovoltaic project in mainbernheim: in march 2019, N-energy already put a smaller block with 749 kilowatt peak into operation a little further to the east. "The development of renewable energies is an essential prerequisite for the achievement of the climate goals". N-ERGIE is therefore constantly expanding its own photovoltaic portfolio and coordinating closely with the respective municipalities," says rainer kleedorfer, authorized signatory and head of corporate development at N-ergie.

The new PV power plant covers an area of 5.8 hectares. Like the existing smaller plant, it was built on a 110-meter-wide strip along the nurnberg-wurzburg rail line. Around 8400 modules are used, which together account for around 3,640,000 euros? Kilowatt hours (kwh) per year and thus produce electricity for a good 1000 households.

More than 1000 signatures for reduced building area in eggolsheim

A folder with more than 1,000 signatures has been collected by the initiators of the young burgers’ citizen petition. You want the planned schirnaidler strabe development in eggolsheim not to build on the entire flat area, but to preserve the area where the old fruit trees are located.

The citizens’ petition "housing creation in the eggolsheim market in harmony with nature and the countryside" wants to achieve that the previous planning is revised. Mayor claus schwarzmann (BB) accepted the lists before the meeting of the market town council and then read out the letter from one of the affected landowners. While the initiators of the citizens’ petition want to remove his plot of land from the development plan, he explained that the agriculturally used plot of land is not a meadow orchard in the sense of the bavarian nature conservation law. Currently, only a few fruit trees are standing on the flat area, which is also used as a firewood storage area. In addition, the owner’s family wanted to use part of the future designated building land as a building plot itself.

The market town councils took note of both the signatures and the owner’s declaration and will discuss the matter in detail at one of the next meetings.

Pool oases in the middle of forchheimer land

The water in the pool shimmers in the sun. Palm fronds sway in the wind. Wicker chairs with blood-white cushions wait at the edge of the pool. "Caribbean?", THINK. "Gran canaria perhaps!" By no means. Such dreamlike pool oases can also be found in the middle of forchheimer land. At birgit’s home in buckenhofen, for example. "The view is already grandiose", tells the proud owner in the white bikini. Especially at night, when the lights in the house and garden glow, the atmosphere is magical, he said.

The house in front of the pool is also a sign of style and taste. But the azure blue water gives the whole ensemble just that certain something. The chic.

A pool for generations

He is the managing director of auto com gmbh in rodental and district chairman of the motor vehicle guild of upper franconia. What are the economic consequences of the corona crisis for car repair shops?? Michael neumann: no dramatic ones so far – at least with the smaller ones. In any case, everything is in the green zone for us. Some of the larger contract repair shops have already announced short-time work. We’ll have to see how it all develops. Why do the smaller clubs currently have fewer problems?? They don’t have such a rough administration – so the fixed costs are also lower. Not all orders are accepted at the moment either. People are actually only allowed in the workshop if they have a good reason to do so. Such a good? When there is a real problem. For example, when a control light comes on or the car stops running. After a more serious accident of course also. But you shouldn’t come for a check-up to see if you’re okay. What about a tire change? Until last week it was not officially allowed. But in the meantime this is no longer a problem. Could the winter tires also be used in the summer in an emergency?? This is already possible. However, the rubber compound of the tire is intended for the winter. So in the summer you have a higher workload.

The bouncers come to us. I have not yet had a case in which anyone has made use of the new regulation. The customers come to the day. How do you protect yourself and your employees or customers from infection?? We try to keep our distance at work. This is not always easy. Sometimes you just need help with printing, pushing or holding. We also make sure that there are no strangers in the workshop. They will be placed in the office at the highest. We are also making sure that there is sufficient distance. We also use plastic steering wheel protectors – for example when a car is delivered. Has the relaxation of restrictions ordered by minister-president markus soder changed anything for your company?? Not for the workshop. The sale of cars and accessories is now possible again on site. Previously, an order could only be placed online or by phone – then we delivered. Now the customers are allowed to come in person to buy something again. The interview was conducted by sven dorr.
