Engaging Eagle 

Pass it on
November 2014
Reflecting with Mayor Reynolds
A very warm thank you to all who came to our ribbon cutting event at the Eagle’s Firewise Garden on October 30th. Having you all there made it a great success! For those of you who don’t know about the new Eagle Firewise Garden, it is located off of Old Horseshoe Bend Road at our Sports Complex. Our firewise garden is a demonstration garden to help educate our residents on how to build an aesthetically pleasing but fire preventive garden.
The Eagle Firewise Garden was master minded by Brett Van Paepeghem of the Bureau of Land Management. He has the passion and knowledge that has made the Firewise Garden what it is today. Countless hours were put in by volunteers and city staff to create and maintain the garden. Eagle Parks and Recreation would like to thank the Eagle Fire Department, Idaho Firewise, BLM and Healthy Hills Initiative who worked with us to provide this educational and beautiful garden to the community. If you were not able to attend the open house, please stop by the garden to enjoy a walk along the recycled glass pathway and view plants such as Desert Willows and John Cabot Roses. At the end of your visit be sure to grab a brochure we have on site to learn more about how you can protect your homes from wildfires. 

Enjoy the activities of our city and remember...Pass it on!

Return of Eagle's eagle
The new structure above Eagle Rd is almost complete! The eagle was removed for some much needed repair work. After the initial examination, it became clear that the sign would need to be replaced. Unfortunately, because the artist had to start from scratch, this took more time than originally thought. The structure that holds the eagle also needed some repair work and a fresh coat of paint. The eagle will be returning to his home very soon!

All Ahead with Director Aho

What goes into building a trail?
The beautiful paths and walkways we utilize everyday can often be taken for granted. We are so grateful to the volunteers that sacrificed their time (and achy muscles) to help beautify our City. Thank you!
They started with this...                                     And did a lot of this...
Next, they had to hand-truck each load, one at a time...
And pack it down, by hand...
But, they were all smiles...
And the end result was beautiful!
Thank you to Eagle Police, Wright Brothers Building Company, Mountain West Bank, and all of the people that made this project a success!

November Artist Highlight
City Hall - Libby Gruber                                                                                                                                            
Libby Gruber is a contemporary artist working primarily with acrylic paint. She also may have a problem with loving lots of color.  Born in New York in 1968, she has also lived in California and Utah. For the last 9 years, she has made her home in Boise. Libby finds inspiration in nature, photography, people, and her keen observation of the world around her. She intertwines art with everyday life and is uniquely creative.
St. Luke's Eagle -  Hoyt and Vestal
Among many shared interests and values is our mutual love for the natural world. We went to South Africa in the fall of 2011 primarily to observe and photograph wildlife, but we also saw beautiful landscapes and waterscapes. We met and saw beautiful people. We also saw severe poverty in the face of excessive wealth. Our presentation of “Images from South Africa” emphasizes the wildlife, but offers hints of the other. We hope to return.

In our view, all of us who make photographic images are appreciating and honoring our subjects, both in the creation of the images and in the observation of them. Photography is a way to share what we see. It is a way to capture memories. It is a journey.

Leaf Recycling is back!
As autumn hits and the leaves fall the City of Eagle prepares for the Leaf Recycling program. Bring in your cans of food between October 20-November 20 in exchange for a 5-pack of compostable bags. This is such a practical way to help your community. The leaves you gather will be collected November 3-29 by Republic Services and sent to Ada County were they will be made into compost. The compost will then be used on the landscape areas on Ada County Highways. The cans of food will be donated to Eagle Food Bank just in time for the Holiday Season. In the year 2013 the Eagle Food Bank served more than 2500 residents in Eagle and Star. So, bring in your can goods, grab your recycling bags and leave satisfied knowing that you are helping your community in a small but large way.
