Economic Report on Caldwell, ID. First I wish to discuss the first rate work being done by Mr. Al Ames of the Caldwell Economic Growth Council. He and his group have made a revitalization of the down community area. There is a lake flowing underneath the town, that has been paved around and built upon. They'll be uncovering about 10 blocks of it and adjusting the area allowing for a Downtown River Go like in San Antonio. It will be named the Indian Creek River Walk (actually the Boise River officially still) and it's outstanding and they have in place all of the funding. At the conclusion of the area is a Turn about being built allowing for five directional traveling including enabling persons to get onto the 2 downtown one-way streets. There is a six-acre little bit of property accessible that was a vintage pallet manufacturer, the owner wishes to maneuver it. Ideal for a Big Company Business. Several new homes planning and we assume a continuing growth there that'll be unparallel and must exceed the Nampa, ID growth when it comes to proportion raises in 2004-2006. Nampa now the sign claims 68,680 but that's improper a lot more persons and growth everywhere.
