The Eagle Landing is officially open!

Mayor, city council and kids cut the ribbon at the Eagle Landing

On Friday, December 20th Eagle Mayor Stan Ridgeway and City Council Members Miranda Gold, Kenny Pittman, and Dr. Jill Mitchell declared the Eagle Landing officially open! The Mayor and Council Members were joined by over 50 people to celebrate the opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. 

After the ceremony members of the community got to take a look inside the new buildings at the Eagle Landing. On the property are a community center, staff offices, and the former St. Matthews Catholic Church which will be the new home of the Eagle Museum of History and Preservation. The church, which dates back to 1938, is a piece of history itself and is going to be the perfect home for the items and stories of historical significance to Eagle.

When the City Council voted to purchase the property this summer the buildings were far from move-in ready, but city staff got to work renovating what they could, tearing down what they couldn't fix and turning the property into a place of pride for the community. After months of hard work, the Parks and Recreation Staff moved into their new office space on December 9th. Work is still ongoing in the church, and the museum displays and staff will be on-site by the end of December.

The Eagle Landing is a place to come together; whether to try something new in one of our classes at the community center or learn about our town's history at the museum. We hope to see you there!
