Late Dixie Dorner’s birthday surprise: When will he hit his street?
Dynamo legend Hans-Jürgen “Dixie” Dörner will be honored with a street for his services on and off the football field.
Dresden – Tomorrow, Wednesday, will be in January 2022 Deceased dynamo legend Hans-Jürgen “Dixie” Dorner 72 years old. On this occasion, the city council announced a birthday surprise this Tuesday: Dorner will be honored with a street for his services on and off the football field.
After talking to the family last week, he wants O.B. Dirk Hilbert (51, FDP) proposes to the City Council that “we search very intensively for a new street to be named, which will later bear the name of Dixie Dörner”.
The model will be developed in the coming weeks and then presented to the committees. The family would like to name the street near the youth academy Singapore dollarBecause youth development was a matter close to Hans-Jürgen Dürner’s heart. But it is also possible to imagine a street near the stadium of Rudolf Harbig.
We are glad to comply with this wish. However, the city council must approve the idea. In view of the many advances of his rank to gain an honor, he probably wouldn’t fail.
Ralph Menge: “I’m glad there’s now a proposal to honor Dixie”
A motion came from the left in the city council, annoyed that everything was taking so long. “It has now taken the city administration nearly a year to announce that a model will now be drawn up and handed over to the committees,” the parliamentary group said.
Road should not be enough. Hilbert also proposes that the city donate €60,000 to the Dixie Foundation in November. Dynamo recently contributed the same amount.
“I am delighted that there is now a proposal to honor Dixie, which does justice to its importance to sport and the city of Dresden,” says the foundation’s chairman, Ralf Menge (62).

Shortly after the death of Dixie Dorner in January 2022, calls were made to honor him for his services. Suggestions have ranged from honorary citizenship to a scholarship to a memorial near the stadium.
Nothing has happened since then – at least to the aliens – although the city council has repeatedly confirmed that it is in conversation with the family.
On Tuesday, the mayor made his proposal, in agreement with the family, to name a street and participate in the Dixie-Dörner Foundation. This is a good idea and you should be able to win a majority in the city council, both in view of Dorner’s advantages and the relatively low costs.
Therefore, the latter should also decide on the proposals as early as possible, and the search for a street to be named should be carried out quickly. Why wait when everyone agrees. What shouldn’t happen is another hanging game after a potential decision, where nothing seems to happen again.
However, there is still one problem that needs to be resolved. As stated by the city administration itself, according to its own guidelines, streets may be named within the nearest five years after a person’s death. Although there are good reasons for this, it shouldn’t take too long in this case.
It’s hard to convey. But as the saying goes, where there is a will, there is a way.
