Destination Caldwell Running on Financial Fumes

It has been reported to the Guardian the financial resources of Destination Caldwell are nearly depleted.  In short, they are operating on financial fumes.  Time will tell if they are really short on cash or not.  CEO Keri Smith-Sigman has stated that all is well with their financial situation and they expect grants and other cash infusions in the near term.

It is worth noting CEO of Destination Caldwell, Smith-Sigman is running for Canyon County Commissioner.

Destination Caldwell runs the Caldwell Plaza and is a 501 C-3 nonprofit organization.  They do not share their financial statements with the public nor do they share them with the very people who are members of the BID (Business Improvement District) who fund the organization based on a percentage of their property tax assessed values up to a maximum of $5,000.00.


  1. I don't understand why they are not required to publish their financial data with those who fund the organization. If they are funded with property taxes, they why aren't they more than willing to share their dataa?

  2. I don't understand why a publicly funded entity like Destination Caldwell is not posting their financials like cities, counties and school districts. They owe this to those who are funding this organization.

  3. I find it interesting that it has taken so long to ask this question.While we need the Plaza, we also need to connect with the financials.And someone wanting this information should not be turned date it has been a secret society.that is not good.

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.
