The town of Eagle is excited about the first phase of the Eagle River Corridor Plan implementation! In April of 2016, town of Eagle voters approved a 0.5% sales tax to fund a variety of park and trail improvements including the River Park project.
There are two main components of the 4.3 acre project:
- In-stream design and construction of the whitewater park.
- Upland park design and construction on the north side of the river.
Once complete, the Town of Eagle will have a world class whitewater park and a new recreation amenity that will not only serve the members of our community, but will provide a venue for whitewater competitions, community events, and more!
Park Design is at 60%!
Continued community input and direction from the Steering Committee is keeping the project on track! The park design is at 60% and can be found HERE. The project team is currently working on updated cost estimates for the updated design. Community members are encouraged to check out the new plans and attend two upcoming public meetings: Planning and Zoning Commission on July 18, 2017 or the Town Board of Trustees meeting on July 25, 2017. Both the Commission and Town Board will be reviewing a Special Use Permit and Development Permit for the project.
