Prescription for More Traffic Congestion On Your Way to Freeway

It has been reported to The Guardian the latest in brainstorming to get people to go downtown may involve the corner of 10th and Blaine in Caldwell. The word on the street is the city is in talks with the owner of the property D. L. Evans Bank to lease the corner for the Caldwell Farmer's Market.

The current site at 12th and Everett seems to work just fine and doesn't cause any traffic problems for people trying to get around town. The city failed to get an agreement to maintain the D L Evans corner and it sits there and eyesore for all to see as they travel through Caldwell. We don't know the plans in any detail but with the departure of the South West District Health Department offices from downtown, Kings closed up and other vacancies downtown Caldwell doesn't look like a "gong concern" save the new digs for TVCC.

We like the farmer's market as it gives people of Caldwell an opportunity to chat with friends and others they don't often see or hear from but the move to 10th and Blaine is troubling.


  1. Why would they move the farmers mkt. from the place it has been using the last couple of years? The site by the library is clean, paved, and has plenty of parking along with access to electricity.

  2. Who would want it in a dirt pile. Let see the wind is blowing 20-40 mph, how fun would that be?

  3. An excellent idea.
    It's all about visibility.

We welcome comments but they will be moderated and edited if too long or do not have anything to do with the post.
Agree or disagree just do it without profanity or it won't get posted. Try to keep your comments to no more than 300 words. Too long and I will try to edit it down or simply delete the comment. The whole idea is to get people to read your comment. Don't use 10 words when one will do the job.

It's OK to have a difference of opinion but keep it civil. I have used the "delete" feature on myself at times.

The ANONYMOUS feature for comments seems to be the most user friendly. People have commented they have difficulty with the other methods of posting comments.
