# 38: The Granary + The Visitors Center = The Hub of Sturgeon Bay and Door County. The FIRST place to stop to find out what is happening

At first, simply rehab the granary building so the first floor can be used as the Sturgeon Bay Visitor's Center. Add public bathrooms. Add a large wrap around porch to add definition and structural integrity to the Granary. Future use will be a lookout room (available for rent - to profit the Visitor's Center) in the upper part of the granary. Bike and Kayak rental with a Kayak launch from that location. Offer lessons on sailing/boating/kayaking/fishing. Have the Visitor Center offer REAL Lighthouse tours to our wonderful and existing lighthouses. Start the Visitor Center on the path to financial stability so it can grow and sustain itself. Bring back water ski shows, or bring in a wakeboard tournament.

Also - it's time that the west side gets an economic boost from the city. MOVE THE FARMERS MARKET TO THE WEST SIDE WATERFRONT. There is more space available for expansion there which is better economically for the city. Give the west side of Sturgeon Bay a nice economic boost that they have been shorted on for many years. We have a lack of parking in this town, so that means we gain a nicely newly paved parking lot. Also, the congestion at the current farmers market on Saturday mornings is unsafe - the west side waterfront location will be much safer. The farmers market on the west side waterfront will also help highlight the west side of Sturgeon Bay to tourists and locals alike.

Thank you,
