Who and What is the Caldwell Historic Preservation Commission?
We are a group of individuals who live in Caldwell and are devoted to improving the City’s character through preservation of its cultural features. To that desired end, we have established the following goals for the Stuenenberg Residential Historic District and, following that endeavor, for the other residential areas with historic integrity including the downtown area.
- Preserve and enhance the environmental quality of the historic district. Encourage harmony and compatibility in the planning of new building and development in keeping with the district’s historic character.
- Direct the economic and social forces at work in the district so that they do not impair its historical, architectural, ecological or scenic attributes.
- Strengthen the City’s economic base by stimulating the concepts of conservation and reuse.
- Showcase Caldwell through the care and custody of its historic areas.
How can I get involved with the Historic Commission?
The Commission meets the 4th Wednesday of every month. We meet at the Caldwell Public Library, Idaho Room, at 1010 Dearborn, Caldwell, Idaho at 6:30 P.M. The public is welcome and encouraged to attend the meetings.
