Door County Maritime Museum Exploring New LED Sign

The Door County Maritime Museum in Sturgeon Bay is looking to replace its existing sign on Madison Avenue with a new LED-type sign that would be able to display information about upcoming events.

Museum Executive Director Bob Desh says the museum has received approval from all city departments and says extensive review has been done to make sure the sign is attractive and won't be a distraction to drivers or those enjoying the waterfront.

Desh says the museum has applied for grants to fund the project. He says additional help will come from the Sturgeon Bay Parks Department, Sturgeon Bay Utilities and others.

The sign itself will be brick -- matching the brick of the museum -- and include nautical-style lanterns along the top. Desh says it will be a big improvement over the existing sign.

Desh says they'd like to be able to move ahead with the project this summer but that will depend on the grant funding.

"Like all non-profits we operate on a very tight margin so without the grants it would be a difficult go for us," says Desh. "So we're keeping our fingers crossed that the grants go (through) and we are able to move forward this summer."
