The concept of what is a historical monument is changing and our planning practices should follow. Vernacular buildings may be considered monuments, a notion that may be expanded to the scale of a whole city. This is the case in Fes, in Morocco. As the historical center has been listed by UNESCO as a "World Monument", the King of Morocco responded by creating a public agency to manage all the projects in Fes. In this area, planning and building streets for emergencies and services is not a simple challenge.
