Open Space Management Plans


The Eagle Open Space and Trails Master Plan was completed in 2022 and identified management planning as a high priority. The Town has contracted ERO Resources (ERO) to analyze existing conditions and provide recommendations for management strategies. Adoption of the Management Plans is slated for December 2023. 

The Management Plans will detail recreation and natural resource management strategies and conditions for all open space properties owned by the Town of Eagle. The plans will catalog natural resources and open space assets, seasonal use restrictions, noxious weeds/ pest management, ecologically impaired areas, highlight potential areas for restoration, and overall recreation management. The plans will also provide stewardship strategies to achieve natural resource objectives included in the management plans.

Some key issues that will be evaluated and considered during the management plan process include:

    1. Winter trail management of the Haymaker Trail 

    2. Motorized width limit for the Second Gulch Trail 

    3. Mountain e-bike use on natural surface trails in open space

    4. Priorities and management of natural resources in open space
