According to the current situation, the aim is to attract between four and five thousand inhabitants within a development period of 15 to 20 years and to create 1500 to 4000 jobs. For example, 200 to 330 more people would live in the city each year – which, with a current population of around 38,000, would mean an annual increase of 0.9 percent. At the same time, between 60 and 265 new jobs could be created – that would mean annual growth of up to 1.9 percent.
This corresponds to the basic objectives of state and regional planning as well as to the recommendations of the “Spatial Development Strategy of the District” (RES).
