Accord is reached with protesters

The central government said that it has reached an agreement with the Foro Nacional de Vivienda, which represents residents of  Proyecto El Faro in Guararí and Triángulo Solidario.

The central government said that the resident organization met with Sergio Alfaro Salas, the minister of the Presidencia, and Ana Cristina Trejos of the  Ministerio de Vivienda y Asentamientos Humanos Tuesday. Many of the residents had walked from their homes in Heredia to Zapote for a protest.

Casa Presidencial said that the government would form a committee to meet next month to consider housing concerns. In addition, Alfaro promised to arrange a meeting with President Luis Guillermo Solís and the Foro Nacional de Vivienda.

Those who live in Triángulo Solidario are being displaced by the northern loop of the Circunvalación highway, and they are demanding housing from the government.
