40. Safe Citizen Intervention

Pacification And Reactivating Of The Streets

FundaciĆ³n Despacio

Location: Ignacio de Veintimilla Ave., between 6 de Diciembre Ave. and 12 de Octubre Ave

This intervention will complement the current municipal efforts to pacify streets in the neighborhood La Floresta having a special focus on increasing citizen participation in the intervention that will be done along Ignacio de Veintimilla Street. The aim is to create a safer street by the use of low-cost materials and resources and as much citizen and neighborhood participation as possible, highlighting the improvements that can be made to achieve safer conditions for road users. The intervention impact on neighbors will be monitored to further improve it in the medium term and eventually keep it permanently as a solution enhancing urban equity, safety, security and participation.
