The construction of green areas in San Josť city advances as part of a project of the United Nations Development Program (UNDP).
The most recent project is being carried out by the Municipality of Montes de Oca Canton, with the rebuilding of the boulevard in the Los-Yoses District.
The improvements include the planting of more than 80 trees due to most of the current trees show damage. Some of them represent a risk for pedestrians, and the roots break pipes and sidewalks, as they are not suitable species for the site, according to the municipality.
Tree species native to Costa Rica trees such as Tecoma stans, Croton draco and Plumeria rubra will be planted.
In addition, more comfortable paths for pedestrians will be built and the lighting will improve along the boulevard to reduce empty areas and improve safety.
The goal of rehabilitating urban areas is to create suitable spaces for people to meet, play sports and enjoy open spaces in the city.
Green areas improve the urban climate, capture air pollutants, function as noise and windscreens, and protect the soil by increasing water infiltration and preventing erosion. At the same time, they provide health to the inhabitants, and add value to the area, said the municipality in its statement.
The first National Urban Environment Agenda was presented by the government in a virtual event organized by the UNDP in June to coordinate the conservation of biodiversity in urban developments.
