It has been 5 years since the USA released its list.   No change to USA UNESCO World Heritage Site nominations.  As far as is known, Western New York elected official on the local, state, national level and the public seem uninterested in supporting a nomination for the Erie Canal or Buffalo’s Frank Lloyd Wright “Darwin Martin House.”

About one year ago I even posted the idea on Linkedin.com to the Buffalo Niagara Enterprise groups under the heading “An effort to have the Erie Canal designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site might lead to business development.”  Received only one like from its 1000 group members.

Here is the list of USA nominated locations.

I don’t have any political connections.  No one has responded to me these past 2 years.  If you do, send the official you know this form.  It will download to you as an MS Word document.:
