Eagle unveiled its Strategic Plan that was developed by town staff and the the Board of Trustees with the guidance of John Ruetten, Resource Trends, Inc. Ruetten has extensive experience in assisting governmental entities and public utilities in developing their strategic plans.
Eagle’s goal is to become a stand-out community by creating its own standards. It’s estimated that the town will reach its ‘build-out’ in fifteen/twenty years, but the town wants to address growth issues long before it reaches build-out.
Through this strategic planning, standards-driven process the town will develop a brand that is unique to itself and a guide for staff and trustees. The key to implementing any plan is its execution and that will require expanding the collaboration of all town departments, elected officials and the community; we need to listen to understand everyone’s comments in order to respond appropriately.
Eagle Chamber of Commerce President, Mick Daly, Juice Plus+, gave a brief update the new members benefits planned for 2018 and the 7-month long Community Leadership Academy that is now underway. He also introduced the Chamber’s Business Advocacy Council and it’s co-chair Stan Ken-singer, S & B Real Estate Services, Inc. Levi Rozga, Chamber Director and vice-president, ANB Bank, is the other co-chair.
The nine-member Council’s objective is to be the ‘voice of the business community’, and will assist Eagle to become the place to ‘live, work and play, without driving up valley.’
The Eagle Chamber’s November 7th Networking Breakfast will provide an open discussion on the role of the Business Advocacy Council in Eagle’s future. The breakfast will be at Color Coffee Roasters, 717-B Sylvan Lake Road from 8 – 9:30 a.m.
