With the symbolic ground-breaking ceremony at the site where the central village square will later be built, grafenberg’s mayor werner wolf () gave the starting signal for village renewal in the grafenberg districts of lilling, sollberg and lillingerhohe.
It is now 25 years since grafenberg applied to be included in the village renewal program. It has been another ten years since a basic seminar was held in klosterlangheim. The fact that not much has happened since then is certainly not due to a lack of will. The truth was allowed to come closer, that the city of grafenberg could not raise the necessary own share. The city coffers were and are too tight.
EU, federal and state governments push ahead
many committed residents have nevertheless not allowed themselves to be put off by these changes. Undeterred, they have sat down in working groups with experts from the office for rural development (ALE) and private planning offices and developed the goals of the village renewal.
