The Centro Universtário da Região da Campanha - URCAMP, through an agreement signed between the City Hall of Candiota/RS, together with the technical and financial support from the Pampa Sul Thermoelectric Power Plant (Miroel Wolowski), constituted a study group, called NEDUA ( Center for Urban and Environmental Development Studies) formed by professionals and academics from different areas of knowledge, which had the objective of elaborating the proposal of the Candiota Master Plan. The municipality is located in the southern region, close to the Uruguayan border and it is known for its reserve and extraction of coal, as well as for the generation of electricity. The Master Plan is regulated by the Federal Law 10.257/2001 - Cities Statute, which sets out basic and complementary instruments for the urban planning and development, as well as guaranteeing social policies for the population, especially the most needy. The project lasted for two consecutive years through surveys, field research, historical references and technical readings, community readings, among others. The Plan itself should be a living and dynamic law that integrates necessary transformations to the principles of sustainable and socially fair development, guiding the structural investments to be made by the public and private entities. In order to  carry out that process, the teams were divided into five subjects: Heritage, History and Culture; Urban, Infrastructure, Services, Land Use and Occupation; Environmental and Rural; Economic, Social and Security Development; Legal, Planning and Management. This article will discuss the Heritage, History and Culture where it was revealed demands and enthusiasm in the preservation of its memory.
