Car damaged – note left – driver absconded

A Porsche Carrera 911 was damaged whilst it was parked at the Taunus Information Centre on Tuesday, 2nd April, 2013, some time between 11am and 1.30pm.  The damage is to the front left wing (fender) and is estimated to be around €1,000.

Police believe that the damage was caused by another car parking or leaving next to the Porsche.  The driver who caused the accident left a note with their telephone number, but as this does not comply with the obligations that they have according to law § 34 StVO this means that officially they absconded from the scene of an accident and police have started an investigation.  Had the driver called the police and left the note, then this would not have been necessary.

Anyone who saw the accident take place is asked to call the police station in Oberursel on 06171 62400.

The car park in the Alfred-Lechler-Straße, opposite the FIS Primary School and next to the Taunus Information Centre, will be closed between 18th and 20th February, 2013, to allow for tree felling work to take place.

The trees are being removed to allow the car park to be expanded to 110 spaces – almost double the current capacity.

Can Oberursel afford to build a new swimming pool?

The indoor swimming pool in Oberursel has now been closed for four years and is now probably one of the most discussed topics amongst the people and in particular the politicians in the town.

Last week it was on the agenda of the planning and environmental committee at the town hall, this week there is a Bürgerversammlung to update everyone on the current state of the planning and to allow people to put forward their views.  Next week the town council is due to vote on the project.  And various Bebauungspläne have been amended to allow for land to be sold off and built on to finance it all.

But it is the financial situation that remains the biggest question of all: can the town afford it? [Read more…]

What will happen to these trees at the swimming pool car park?

Oberursel needs a new swimming pool – I think most people in the town would agree on that.

And although they may not have agreed on how to finance it in the past, the current plan is to sell off the current car park as building land.

Again, most people would probably agree with that.  If only it wasn’t for these trees:

The trees form a border between the current houses along the Altkönigstraße and the car park, and in the Bebauungsplan (Nr. 218) only the part of the row to the right of the photo is set to remain. [Read more…]

From the town council: Childcare costs and other news

Protests on the Rathausplatz before the town council meeting

Protests on the Rathausplatz

The town council (Stadtverordnetenversammlung) this week started an hour earlier than usual to the sound of protests outside the Rathaus from local parents and the party “Die Linke” in connection with the rise in childcare costs in the town.

It was this increase in costs that had been discussed at such length at the previous sitting of the council and the proposals on the table this week were pretty much the ones that had been presented to parents mid-June.

And despite the fact that a sub-committee had already debated the latest proposals and even the parents that had were present at that meeting had had a chance to put their point of view, a further debate ensued in the council meeting with each party putting forward their arguments – again.

Will Oberursel’s station have a multi-story car park?

A model of the car park area at Oberursel’s station after re-development.  The U-Bahn lines can be seen going round the corner to the left and also the shunting lines that carry straight on.  Between these and the main S-Bahn lines there is a new building on the model where the car park is going to be.  Apparently, this may one day be a multi-story car park!
