SustainableFutures2004 Presenter: TrentJonesOverallPatternsforthecommunity Enforce existing environmental laws; Costa Rica ha s very useful environmental laws, but they are not strongly enfor ced in the Monteverde region Create a green structure using street trees and pa rks to run through the town of Monteverde; this connects the forest on the outside to the new green spaces on the inside, reinforcing the biologi cal corridorsthat are crucial to wildlife Create paths along corridors to create more divers e experiences for people in the town and to avoid walking on the street wher e possible Pathways should allow pedestrians to experience bi o diversity The green network should reconnect severed bio cor ridorsInitiate a viable local transportation system so t hat local people and tourists do not have to use their cars to access sites of in terest, do errands or take children to school Presenter: TrentJones
SustainableFutures2004 Presenter: TrentJonesResidential Patterns Increase the amount of vegetation in the residential areas by planting vegitativebuffers and occasional windbreaks Build on lot sizes that allow for proper sanitation, or develop bio filtration systems Develop community centers
SustainableFutures2004 Presenter: TrentJonesCenterPatterns: Minimize all negative environmental impacts Create public plazas in the centerof the community Add vegetation to the community to add shade, decrease impervious surfaces and control dust
SustainableFutures2004 Presenter: TrentJonesEnvironmental Conditions Grey and blackwatermust be treated in green infrastructure system before filtering into local r ivers and streams The green network should illustrate how such syste ms can be used to improve water quality by:Use of composting toiletsWelldesignedwastewatertreatmentfacilitiesBio filtration methods improvement of stream buffersre-vegetation of steep slopes.

SustainableFutures2004 Presenter: TrentJones SustainableFutures2004 Presenter: TrentJones ProjectedTrafficConditions Due to the increase in traffic Private transportati on is not a sustainable alternative for the town of Cerro Plano. Cerro Plano must be d esigned for the pedestrian and public transport must be easily accessible

SustainableFutures2004 Presenter: TrentJonesSteppingstones Stepping stones may provide dry footing through we t terrain. Choose a large rock of at least100 pounds for each stepping stone. One with a flat face will ensure good footi ng. However, some trails may need to be closed if constant muddy conditions exist. For use in muddy low spots of the trail
SustainableFutures2004 Presenter: TrentJonesCheck steps and check dams Check steps and check dams slow the flow of water in gullies and down slopes in order to prevent further erosion and to allow silt to build up behind the structures.
SustainableFutures2004 Presenter: TrentJonesSideCutting If correctly sloped, water will continue to run down the hillside instead of errodingthe trail. An occasional culvert should be added to remove excess water from the trail.
