It is clearly known that support and participation of public and social groups is essential to the achievement of sustainable development in historical city. In this case, public participation and heritage awareness facing the historical cities and analyzing them is of the first useful step. In this research article we try to find out the parameters that affect sustainable development in heritage area and relationship among them (in public point of view). We also ranked these parameters. TOPSIS was demonstrated as a model for selection and ranking of strategic plans in Balanced Scorecard and Goal Programming model. The results of this study revealed that the social side of sustainable development has more weightage compared to economic and environment aspect. Parking space and traffic, historical environment in new design, air and sound pollution are the three most important indicators.
