2021-004841DES: CITY CEMETERY (AT LINCOLN PARK) – North side of Clement Street between 33rd Avenue, Fort Miley VA Medical Center, and the Golden Gate; Lot 029 in Assessor’s Block 1313 (District P) - Consideration to Recommend to the Board of Supervisors Landmark Designation of City Cemetery at Lincoln Park as an individual Article 10 Landmark pursuant to Section 1004.2 of the Planning Code. City Cemetery was initiated for landmark designation by the Board of Supervisors on July 27, 2021 (See BoS File No. 210426). City Cemetery is significant as the resting place of socially, ethnically, and culturally diverse populations of San Franciscans that have made contributions to the broad patterns of our history - its closure and partial removal of City Cemetery reflects changing attitudes and behavior around the disposal and respect for the dead across the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries; the extant Kong Chow temple and Ladies’ Seaman’s Friends Society obelisk both embody distinctive characteristics of nineteenth-century funerary design and practice; and City Cemetery is a significant archeological site with remnants of the cemetery, including human remains, holding the potential to yield information important to the history of the city and the people who built it. The subject property is within the PUBLIC Zoning District and an OS Height and Bulk District. For further information, call Kari Hervey-Lentz at 628-652-7555 or email at kari.lentz@sfgov.org and ask about Record No. 2021-004841DES.
