The San Pablo City Heritage District was formed with the following aims in mind:
Increase public awareness and appreciation of the Heritage Zone – This is to advocate for better understanding and appreciation of the long and proud history of the City of San Pablo. This will also foster awareness amongst San Pablenos regarding their rich history and will foster their sense of community identity and pride. On a national scale, this will also make the San Pablo Heritage Zone known within the Philippines;
Incorporate conservation in the San Pablo Heritage Zone as an element in local, provincial, and national decision making – This is so that the significance of the Heritage Zone is clearly understood by citizens and law-makers alike, especially when making decisions that may affect it.
Strengthen and stabilize funding sources and incentives – In order to make the San Pablo Heritage Zone sustainable, there is a need to devise efficient systems to ensure the sustainability of the Historic District
