Abstract

Monteverde, Costa Rica, is a small community that is lacking a standardized sidewalk system, which can increase the risk of pedestrian-motor accidents. Our team used semi-structured interviews, participant observation, and content analysis to examine this issue. This project provided initial tools to expand coordination efforts across multiple sectors. We executed a town hall with landowners, provided recommendations to the municipality, and designed a landowner manual.Through developing a comprehensive sidewalk system, Monteverde can increase the safety of residents and tourists.
