Redesign of Weimar's Sophiestiftplatz and more self-sufficiency from renewable energies for the city
The first project „Sophienstiftsplatz with Gropiusstraße“ provides financing for planning a general redesign of the terrain, including the redesign of traffic routes, the attractiveness and climate-friendly planting of the square.
The second decision is intended for the "Weimar Sewage Treatment Plant" project. Here, the existing CHP plant is to be supplemented or replaced by a further, larger unit (increasing the sewage treatment plant's degree of the self-sufficiency with electricity from 67 % to 83 %).
For both projects combined, the city of Weimar will receive ERDF funding of around 3.9 million euros. An amount of 388,000 euros are for the sewage treatment plant, and more than 3.6 million euros for Sophienstiftsplatz.
