Nahbollenbach Army Depot
Nahbollenbach Army Depot in Idar-Oberstein is approximately seven miles from Strassburg Kaserne, home to the 40th Engineer Battalion. Strassburg is located adjacent to the village of Algenrodt, a part of the city of Idar-Oberstein. The Depot is part of the released military land and military land that has become free in the rural district of Birkenfeld (as of May 1995). Worldwide cuts in military and defense budgets have led to extensive job cuts (direct and indirect), especially in the rural district of Birkenfeld. This has also led to a considerable fall in purchasing power. The local authorities and the Land of Rheinland-Pfalz have set themselves the goal of improving the economic situation of the region of Birkenfeld. The focus of this task will be on strengthening the region and restructuring it for new fields of economic activity, as well as on the creation of new jobs to replace those military jobs that have disappeared. In addition, the scheme's promoters intend to create incentives for an investor-friendly environment.
