In June 2013, San Francisco Heritage worked with community and civic partners to organize a community summit to address concerns over the loss of cultural and social heritage assets. The following year SF Heritage published “Sustaining San Francisco’s Living History: Strategies for Conserving Cultural Heritage Assets.”
The report proposes a series of strategies for stabilizing and revitalizing San Francisco’s cultural heritage assets for communities, nonprofits, small businesses, festivals, foundations, and government agencies based on proven international models. SF Heritage set a goal of inspiring new policy and preservation tools through “Sustaining San Francisco’s Living History.” The creation of San Francisco’s Legacy Business Registry and Cultural District programs followed soon after the report’s publication.
