Construction Activities Will Damage Masouleh Landscape

 

 

03 August 2005

 

Director of Cultural Heritage and Tourism Office in Masouleh, Gilan province, has expressed concern about plans to construct a park in the historical city.


Nikrooz Mobarhan-Shafiei told CHN that the construction of a park would have undesirable impact on Masouleh’s cultural heritage site.


Shafiei said that Iran’s Cultural Heritage and Tourism Organization had decided to apply with UNESCO for registering Masouleh on the list of Global Cultural Heritage Sites, but, construction works in the city would influence UNESCO experts about accepting Iran’s proposal.


He held the mayor of Masouleh and governor general of Gilan province responsible for any damages that may be inflicted on the cultural site and said that the mayor should have not authorized the construction of the park in the city at the cost of destroying sections of the city’s old texture.


Shafiei also criticized provincial officials for constructing a meteorological office in the suburb of Masouleh which, he said would damage the cultural heritage of the city.
