Due to the housing shortage in Freiburg, a new district is to be created in the west of the city. A new housing estate with up to 6500 affordable apartments is to be built by 2040. For this purpose, fields and meadows around the Dietenbach will be cultivated. But there is also protest against the sealing of the land. The goal is to create a climate-neutral district. On February 24, 2018, the people of Freiburg will vote by citizens' resolution. Mayor of Freiburg Martin Horn, winegrower Martin Linser and the head of the project group Dietenbach Rüdiger Engel were interviewed by the F.A.Z. The citizens' decision has decided with about 60% for the development.
