Traffic. If traffic flow is addressed growth will happen and the roads will be able to handle future growth.

It could be, but traffic is the determining factor. Must see if the project is right for Eagle. Cant just say no big box or yes big box.

This land has been zoned and is zoned for its proper use. Mostly residential, rural or agriculture. Should fit in with adjacent properties and remain in a rural nature.

Use the revenues we have; promote our businesses, generate more revenues through the growth of our sales tax base. Consider selling bonds to fund major projects.

No. It is a travesty to close all these great accesses to our public lands once a neighborhood goes in. Would seriously limit access for older people, handicapped, and those with mobility issues. We want to be a hunter friendly town.

Most notable this year was the public works. They were out early clearing the roads with every snowfall. Without the support of the town board and proper budgeting, might not have happened.

Roads. Need a right turn lane on to westbound I-70 at Burger King. Get the U.S. Post Office to step up plans to deliver mail, alleviating congestion on Chambers Ave.
