A Note from the Mayor

Welcome to the City of Caldwell. I have had the privilege of serving the City of Caldwell and this wonderful community for nearly 20 years.
In that time, I have learned that the single most important unit in society is the family. Caldwell is an extraordinary place to live and raise a family. Caldwell is surrounded by beautiful agricultural land and is just a short drive to mountains, lakes and rivers where families can recreate and enjoy mother nature. In the City, both visitors and families can experience that small town feel as we currently boast record low crime rates and a fantastic educational system.
In addition, the City of Caldwell is one of the most beautiful and pedestrian friendly cities in the Treasure Valley with Indian Creek running right through the center of town and numerous bike and walking paths for families to enjoy.

Caldwell also has the best citizens and business owners who make you feel right at home whether you have lived here your entire life, just moved to town or are simply passing through.
As mayor, I am proud to live in Caldwell and raise my children and grandchildren here as it truly is the Treasure of the Valley.
