San Francisco seeks World Heritage status

The city of San Francisco is aiming to become the first in the US to achieve World Heritage status, with a task force launched to pursue a nomination from Unesco.






The city of San Francisco is aiming to become the first in the US to achieve World Heritage status, with a task force launched to pursue a nomination from Unesco.

Led by Karalyn Monteil, the former director of the nonprofit San Francisco Heritage, who is about to start a new position at Unesco, key stakeholders including Rich Hillis, San Francisco planning director, and Diane Matsuda, president of the Historic Preservation Commission, are also working on the nomination.

“We should highlight the LGBTQ history and culture of San Francisco,” Montiel told The San Francisco Standard. “Because by doing so, it would be the only World Heritage site in the world with an LGBTQ theme.”

A process that will take several years, a nomination would likely focus on natural and iconic landmarks, such as Golden Gate Park and the Golden Gate Bridge, which will help the city move forward with such a proposal.
