Another Semana Santa has come and gone...
We saw a record number of people coming to enjoy our beautiful community. Many businesses reported that sales were at an all-time high. But the increase in visitors also increased our trash and put more stress on our water system. Nosara needs long-term planning to manage growth, both seasonal and permanent, while preserving the unique character of the place we love.
One of the main avenues available to us is a Territorial Zoning Plan to address sustainable growth. The Municipality of Nicoya is in charge of developing the plan, with the NCA expecting to bring community input to the proposal.
In the meantime, you can make an immediate, tangible improvement by taking a trash bag with you when you walk the beach. Even better, participate tomorrow, March 31, in the beach clean-up, organized by local businesses, starting at 7:30 am. Meet at the the North entrance or Palm Tree.
