The mission of the Eagle Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) is to safeguard the City’s historic structures and features; to foster civic pride in the past; to promote the use of historic districts and landmarks for the education, pleasure, and welfare of the people of the City; and to encourage preservation of historic integrity in land use and development planning.
Historic Preservation Commission's Vision
To promote the educational and cultural welfare of the citizens of Eagle through the identification, designation, and protection of those buildings, sites, districts, structures, and objects that reflect significant elements of the city’s historic, architectural, archaeological, and cultural heritage.
We serve to benefit the Eagle community by preserving our past to promote our City’s unique character, culture, and feel. We believe it is necessary to preserve the past as we build for the future. Through preservation, we can ensure that the City of Eagle remains differentiated and a great place for all residents to call home.
History is important to us and the past can teach us so much! Through the preservation of historic properties, sites, and objects, it allows us to learn from, enjoy and experience portions of a bygone era in our modern times.
