Welcome to Eagle 

Just the Fact

The number of homes in Eagle has increased from 4,048 in 2000 to 7,570 in 2010, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

Eagle has undergone a major transformation in the past few decades, going from a sleepy agricultural town on the outskirts of Boise to a posh suburb filled with large housing developments and new commercial projects lining both the Foothills and the Boise River.

Eagle is busy trying to build a sense of community, with events like the summer Eagle Saturday Market, monthly First Friday gallery walks and the time-honored Eagle Fun Days, which draws the populace out for family friendly fun.
