Community Development

The Town of Eagle's Community Development Department provides long-range planning, development review, planning and building department oversight and code enforcement.  We strive to bridge the gap between the community and the Town in all areas relating to the built environment.  Our department is committed to transparency, engagement and equality.


The Community Development office is open Monday-Friday between 8am-5pm. During this time staff is accessible via telephone or email. We recommend scheduling an appointment for in-person meetings. To schedule an appointment with staff, please email or call (970) 328-9655.

Please note, you will receive a response to your voicemail or email from a department representative within 1-3 business days.
