Active land policy
The land framed in yellow has always been owned by the municipality. In 1954 an elementary school was built there. Then, over the decades, land was purchased, and today all the plots framed in red are owned by the municipality. The municipality has 30 percent co-ownership of the plot framed in blue. © Municipality of Mäder
In 1978, the municipality of Mäder acquired a plot of land for the first time and designated it as a public green space. Since then, the growing municipality has set itself social and ecological development goals in its zoning plan and also designates many areas for municipal use that do not yet belong to the municipality. Over four decades, the municipality has steadily acquired land and built municipal infrastructure there – schools, kindergartens, social centers, affordable housing and, last but not least, green spaces. For the municipality, which is now experienced in land policy, land is a treasure that should not be sold, not even to pay off debt.
