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.
