Community Activism[edit]

The Eagle community has an involved community, especially when big issues come up for review. In just three years, there were three referendums. In January 2010, voters defeated a 582,000 square foot lifestyle center project called Eagle River Station. In January 2012, voters approved allowing the medical marijuana dispensary to stay in business. (The Board of Trustees originally allowed the business to open but then the new Board of Trustees decided to withdraw that permit. The owners of the dispensary then took it to the vote of the people and the business was allowed to stay open). In May 2012, voters approved the second vote on the now 732,000 square foot lifestyle center project still called Eagle River Station.

Climate[edit]

Eagle experiences a semi-arid climate with cold winters and hot summers. Due to the high elevation, temperatures drop sharply after sunset.
