The Eagle Valley is a harmonious mix of congenial small mountain communities nestled in the dry, pleasant, blue sky climate of the rolling western slope range of Colorado. Traditionally a ranching community, Eagle is working diligently to preserve traditional values and character as it grows both residentially and commercially
The Town of Eagle has a population of 3,500 and its growth coincides with new housing developments and expansion of its commercial base. While the Town of Gypsum is steadily growing, it is also becoming a progressive place to live and work.
The Eagle River Valley is a place where parents know all the kids and the kids know all the dogs in the neighborhood…where children say “hi” and wave as they pass by on their bicycles…where bike paths lead easily from homes to schools…where moms stroll with their babies to parks and where seniors live with dignity… where you can not only see the town manager at a council meeting, but sitting next to you in the bleachers at the Little League game…where businesses prosper, yet give generously to their communities…where the banker knows your name and shakes your hand…where you can find peace at trail’s end or in the church of your choice…where the rafting waters are exhilarating, a nearby lake “hangs” and the fishing streams are serene…where there’s homemade preserves at the county fair and the crowds hoot at the twisting bulls in the summer rodeo….where the grocery store is a place to use your coupons and have a conversation with a neighbor…where the dining is varied and the prices are reasonable…where the past and present are a medley of historic downtown cornerstones and a patchwork of charming shops.
