Newly created website for the San Antonio Missions Nomination
It is interesting to note the section called "San Antonio Application Process". This provides a good "history" of the current T List going back to the initiation of its creation in 2006 and notes the inscription in 2010 of Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument. It also mentions the 2 sites nominated for consideration in 2013 (Frank Lloyd Wright buildings and Poverty Point) BUT there is no
mention at all
of the nomination and withdrawal of Mt Vernon in 2010!!
No need to mention "bad news" I guess!
I noted also on one of the other sites "The cost to apply is a steep $650,000,"
. This is in the same ball park as UK's "guideline" figure of £500k and therefore seems to be about the standard amount for a developed country to have to spend nowadays to put forward a nomination. Ridiculously high really.
