The National Environmental Technical Secretariat, a public organization in charge of issuing the certificate on construction projects that would not cause negative effects on the environment, approved the project of a sports complex in the indigenous community of Presbere, Limon Province.
According to the Ministry of Sports, the sports center will have a cost of approximately $893,000 that will be financed by the Institute of Sports.
The sports center will be built in an area of 6,515 square meters in the Canton of Talamanca. This includes green areas and an area of 3,286 square meters for the practice of sports such as volleyball, basketball, baseball and soccer, among others.
It also includes an area with a capacity for 400 spectators, an area for players, dressing rooms, restrooms, a ticket office, a warehouse and other office space. And outside there will be a pedestrian and parking area.
The Technological University of Costa Rica (TEC) has final approval of the environmental certificate. Once approved, the development process of the project design begins. Subsequently, more hiring will take place.
According to Karla Alemán, Minister of Sports, this project is important for the Suretka indigenous community, where young indigenous athletes will be able to practice their sport in a place with the right conditions and without having to travel kilometers in search of other places.
Construction of the sports complex is expected to begin in 2022.
