Escazú Residents Request Building Moratorium

May 14, 2004

MORE than 400 concerned residents of Escazú, southwest of San José, have signed a petition asking the local government to stop issuing construction permits until the municipality’s long-awaited and much-delayed zoning plan goes into effect.Petitioners say that because the plan will be made public and approved next month, it is imperative to impose a temporary moratorium on new construction to ensure buildings that might violate the upcoming zoning plan do not begin being built.In recent years, many residents of Escazú have expressed concerns and signed petitions requesting that the municipality enact a zoning regulatory plan that would limit the construction of high-rise condominiums and other development in the area (TT, Sept. 14, 2003).
