The City¹s last comprehensive plan (adopted in March of 2010) lists only five overall goals and one of the five is: Seek preservation and maintain the abundant natural and historic resources within and surrounding the City. (page 3-30).
It also says, "Cultural resources encompass historic buildings or structures and archaeological sites, as well as institutions and organizations which contribute to the cultural or artistic life of the community. Cultural resources help to provide the City of Sturgeon Bay with a sense of
heritage, identity, and civic pride. Resources such as historical sites or districts and cultural attractions such as museums can also provide economic development opportunities for the City and its residents. For these reasons, it is important to identify historical and cultural sites
in the City of Sturgeon Bay. (page 4-17).
