Tell us what you think

For 116 years, the Eagle Valley Enterprise has provided readers with information about the Eagle/Gypsum community. Now we want to hear back about what our readers have to say.

Through May 31, the Enterprise will be conducting a reader survey. Results will help the Enterprise plan content based on information regarding readers’ shopping habits, activities and recreation choices. As an added incentive to participate in the survey, an iPad mini will be awarded to one respondent by random drawing.
