State of the City is March 23 at 4pm - Join us!
Eagle's State of the City 
It's that time of year again when municipalities are presenting their past accomplishments and goals for the coming year. For Eagle's State of the City this year, some changes are happening. The City has once again partnered with the Eagle Chamber of Commerce but rather than a lunch meeting, we are spotlighting local businesses by hosting an after hours event after the State of the City Address. Here we will showcase all the things that make Eagle great while enjoying hors d'oeuvres at the beautiful Chateau des Fleur in Eagle. Please join us for this once a year affair, the speech is free to listen to while the after hours tickets are $10 and available through the Chamber of Commerce.
Eagle is HOME!

The City of Eagle recognizes the importance of volunteerism and is taking a moment to thank those who selflessly give of themselves to the community.
Volunteer of the Month
Wright Brothers, The Building Company
It is an honor to recognize Bob Wright, with Wright Brothers, The Building company for Volunteer of the Month. In January, during the severe winter weather, and subsequent State of Emergency Declaration, Wright Brothers was the only business to proactively reach out to the City and offer to help the community and its citizens. The company donated manpower, as well as equipment to assist City’s crews in clearing streets of snow and locating storm drains. The strength of our community comes from our people, and the Wright Brothers have proven themselves time after time to be an asset to ours.

MARCH featured Artists

The Gallery at City Hall - Ulysses Albert III 

For as long as I can remember, I have always had a desire to express myself through visual art. Being rather introverted, art was and still is my way of journaling my thoughts, fears, hopes and dreams. I’ve always had a love for creating surreal, symbolic types of work with a strong sense of realism. When I became a Christian my methods for how I portrayed my work hadn’t changed, just the subject matter and story I wanted to tell.

I grew up in California and graduated from Laguna College of Art and Design in 2007, my college years and prior were a time in my life where much of my art expressed feelings of pain, anger, depression and hopelessness. I became a Christian in 2011, and since then I use the tools and skills I have developed in College to create art filled with hope, life, beauty and peace. In 2013, I made Idaho my home, and the paintings you see I have created since my move. I feel I have been given a gift and at the end of the day I want to honor God and bless others with it.

Currently residing in Boise, Idaho, when I’m not creating personal works I paint and draw portraits and illustrations for various clients. It has truly been a blessing living here as I have had the opportunity to display my work at the Eagle Saturday Market the past 4 years, the Eagle City Hall in 2015, and St. Luke’s Hospital in both Boise and Meridian in 2016. I look forward to what the Lord has in store for me in the future as I continue to grow my relationship with him and grow in my art as well.

The Gallery at St Luke's Eagle - Debra Bonsack

An educated painter with teaching credentials in visual art, Bonsack is an extremely prolific showing artist. Her work can be found in countless collections around the world. After a twenty-five-year career in arts education, Bonsack now paints and teaches full time from one of her two studios. Her California studio doubles as an art retreat destination, personal gallery and vacation home while she teaches semi private lessons from her Boise Idaho studio. Debra’s signature work can be recognized by its highly textural unique quality. Her techniques which she invented herself are identifiable by the impasto textural look of pallet knife oils combined with the fluid free flow look of watercolor. Bonsack works in large series pieces with recognizable personable subjects that reflect the artist’s personality.

Eagle annexes and rezones recently-acquired parcels at Ada-Eagle Sports Complex  
By Jeff Kunz, Eagle City Council
At the February 14, 2017 Eagle City Council meeting, city officials approved a city-initiated comprehensive plan map amendment (CPA-03-16), annexation (A-08-16) and rezone (RZ-13-16) from RR (Rural Residential, an Ada County designation) to PS (Public/Semi-Public) for two parcels at the Ada-Eagle Sports Complex. The parcels were recently acquired by the City of Eagle. The parcels, totaling 15.9 acres, are located on the east side of N. Horseshoe Bend Road 2,000 feet north of E. Floating Feather Road. No development or changes in park usage are proposed. A public hearing was scheduled, but no one sought to offer public testimony. The findings of fact and conclusions of law were approved. Resolution 17-05 amending the 2015 Eagle Comprehensive Plan Future Land Use Designation Map for the area in and around the Ada-Eagle Sports Complex was approved. Ordinance 770 annexing and rezoning the two parcels and amending the city’s zoning map was approved. Excluding the ordinance, all other items were moved to the consent agenda and approved.
Under unfinished business, city officials approved a rezone (RZ-07-16) from MU (Mixed Use) to MU-DA (Mixed Use with a development agreement in lieu of a PUD) and preliminary plat (PP-05-16) requests for Lonesome Dove Subdivision No. 2, a 75-lot (68 buildable, 7 common) residential subdivision (re-subdivision of Lot 1A, Block 2, Lot 1B, Block 2 and Lot 1, Block 1 of Lonesome Dove Subdivision). The requests were for Zach Evans Construction, represented by Mark Butler. At the prior city council meeting, city officials requested the parties, including the applicant and neighborhood representatives, enter mediation to resolve certain matters. As a result of the mediation, the conditions of development were amended to require 15-foot street front setbacks (measured from back of curb) for dwelling units located adjacent to E. Lone River Drive to provide sufficient space for longer vehicles within garages and to require the CC&Rs to specify that the common lot area (Lot 1, Block 18) located between the dwelling units adjacent to the alleys shall be maintained by the owners of those dwellings. The site specific conditions of approval were amended to stipulate the applicant shall work with the adjacent property owner (located west of the development) to provide an eight-foot wide buffer area located adjacent to the western property line. A sentence requiring the applicant and adjacent property owner to share the buffer area installation costs was deleted. Another site specific condition of approval requiring owners to subscribe to premium trash service for residential dwelling units accessed from private alleys was deleted and placed in the development agreement. The master homeowner’s association and the owner of the Phase 2 property are currently negotiating on the management and voting rights associated with the effects of the development of Lonesome Dove Subdivision No. 2.
Under new business, city officials recommended approval of Ada County Transmittal 201602239-S-PR for preliminary plat and private road requests for Vine Estates Subdivision, a six-lot residential subdivision. The requests were for Aleksey Strelyuk, represented by Tamara Thompson with The Land Group. The 37.82 acre site is located 1,400 feet east of the N. Ballantyne Lane/W. Beacon Light Road intersection and is within the city’s area of impact. The item was transferred to the consent agenda for approval.
