New application will facilitate the process to report environmental violations

Citizens now have a new application available, created by the organization For Naturewhich will allow reporting potential infractions in the implementation of laws and regulations related to land use and environmental protection.

During the second forum of Puerto Rico Preservesheld this Tuesday, environmental experts and community leaders recognized that the tool – called Citizen Protector – is positive, since it makes visible the environmental problems that communities in different areas of the country face and allows the processes to process complaints, which were classified as slow, to be accelerated..

“It becomes a collective tool, where one begins to see the disputes and conflicts in other parts of Puerto Rico. “Those that are repeated, those that are not resolved and, then, build a community within the Citizen Protector, because the citizen alone is not going to work.”explained the associate director of Village House, Arturo Massol Deyá.
