We have not heard about the size but rest assured it will be a big bold kitchy addition to our revitalized downtown.
A great big Welcome to Caldwell along with paid advertising is the plan to help pay for the initial and ongoing costs of this darling of the night sky of our revitalized downtown. We think this sparkling addition to downtown will be another project paid for with property tax dollars via Caldwell East Urban Renewal.
One reader has offered the solution to downtown that would go great with this sign would be to deed the entire downtown to a local Indian tribe. They could add more life to our downtown with Indian Casino gaming.
Millions have been spent downtown by CEURA. Our Mayor and City Councilors are trying hard to come up with tax generating projects that will help downtown resurrect itself from the current economic doldrums.
Perhaps this sign will generate some positive cash flow and tax revenue via advertising dollars this sign may generate.
