the Interior department is making the conservencies for all ten properties do the paperwork. Some of these are mostly broke.
It appears that there is indeed quite a bureaucracy involved in preparing the documentation for any Frank Lloyd Wright nomination
a. The lead organisation is the "Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy"
(FLWBC) - it will coordinate the preparation and the handover to the National Park Service (NPS). It is a Chicago based organisation and its Web site is http://www.savewright.org/
Surprisingly I can find no reference on this site to the Nomination!!
b. To help FLWBC, an ad hoc group called the "Frank Lloyd Wright World heritage Council"
(FLWWHC) has been set up. It is made up of a representative from each of the organisations responsible for the properties aiming for nomination - plus a FLWBC rep.
As Messy indicates these organisations seem individually to be small players. They each have to find $5000 to join in plus $500 ongoing - seems rather low?? Documentation I have found also talks on the one hand of a nomination for 2013 to be considered at the 2014 WHC and of "annual meetings" and chairman being appointed for 2 years at a time etc etc!! These seem incompatible.
I found these 2 documents on the Web site of Marin County, San Rafael, CA whose Civic Centre is one of the buildings
a. Jan 12. "Memorandum of Agreement" for the FLWWHC. It lists each of the individual organisations which will participate http://www.co.marin.ca.us/EFiles/Docs/AD/CivicConservancy/12_0425_RP_120402155151.pdf
b. April 3 2012. A recommendation to Marin County Board from its "Facilities Planning and Development Manager" that it participate. It contains some background to the timescale, activities etc etchttp://www.co.marin.ca.us/EFiles/Docs/AD/CivicConservancy/12_0425_RP_120402154646.pdf
(I see that this document has been referenced before on this forum by winterkjm on 16 April 2012 under US Approach to WH)
So far I have found no progress reports. It is now Oct 2012 - papers for the 2014 WHC must be with UNESCO in just over 3 months! And any produced by these groups still have to go through the NPS/Dept of Interior etc review processes. No way???
