COMMUNITY IMPACT 2023  The award recognizes an Eagle individual, business or organization that is making a tangible impact on the community. The recipient is someone who is working to make Eagle a better place to live, work and play and represents the town’s creativity, resourcefulness and potential. 

Former mayor Yuri Kostick instituted the annual Community Impact Award program in 2014. The first Community Impact Award recipients were Scott Turnipseed and Chris Cook for their efforts to bring the Colorado High School Cycling League state championship race to Eagle in 2013. That event brought well over 1,000 guests to town on a weekend in October and helped put Eagle on the map as a mountain biking and outdoor adventure destination.
