Concept for Leverkusen: where refugees should find a temporary home

The city hall is currently expecting around 4,000 immigrants from Ukraine – and is working feverishly to accommodate them. Best of all, of course, according to the “Leverkusen model”, i.e. in your own apartments. However, this will not be so easy to achieve.

What is new is that next to Sankt Aldegundis in Rheindorf, a two-storey container facility is to be erected at the city’s expense. 80 to 90 refugees could then find a temporary home there; The city administration writes that the city administration is currently “in close contact” with the parish.

Furnishings on the old outdoor pool site

Most of the space in Schlebusch is to be created for people fleeing attacks by the Russian army. A central accommodation facility could be built on the site of the former Auermühle outdoor pool, which would then be operated by the state. Its capacity: 500 people. Of course, the Corona test center, which is operated by the Malteser, has to make way for a tent city at the Auermühle. It should move to the hospital.

A similar amount of space will be created in the gymnasium on Heinrich-Brüning-Strasse. 300 to 400 people are said to be accommodated there; in the sports hall on Görresstrasse, on the other hand, there is only room for 56 people. The halls should be ready for the refugees in these days. The fact that gymnasiums are now being used again is an “alternative and immediate necessity,” it says. The town hall is trying to find an alternative until after the summer holidays. But: “However, due to the high dynamics of what is happening, no reliable statement can be made.”

Another focal point is Heinrich-Lübke-Strasse 142, where 160 people from the Ukraine can be accommodated in containers – “temporarily”, emphasizes the city administration.
