The HPC may approve a list of structures of historical, architectural or aesthetic merit that have not been designated as landmarks and are not situated in designated historic districts. This list may be added to from time to time. The purpose of this list shall be to recognize and encourage the protection, enhancement, perpetuation and use of such structures. The HPC shall maintain a record of historic structures in the City that have been officially designated by agencies of the State or federal government, and shall cause such structures to be added to the aforesaid list.
Nothing in this Article 10 shall be construed to impose any regulations or controls upon such structures of merit included on such a list and neither designated as landmarks nor situated in historic districts.
The HPC may authorize such steps as it deems desirable to recognize the merit of, and to encourage the protection, enhancement, perpetuation and use of any such listed structure, or of any designated landmark or any structure in a designated historic district, including but not limited to the issuance of a certificate of recognition and the authorization of a plaque to be affixed to the exterior of the structure; and the HPC shall cooperate with appropriate State and federal agencies in such efforts.
The HPC may make recommendations to the Board of Supervisors and to any other body or agency responsible, to encourage giving names pertaining to San Francisco history to streets, squares, walks, plazas and other public places.
