Open Space & Recreation Advisory Committee

Mission Statement:

Ensure continuing investment, conservation, and sound management practices of open space, trails, and natural resources within the Town of Eagle and adjacent public and private lands with the goal of maintaining our community’s quality of life for present and future generations.

Strategic Vision:

Through sustainable management practices and working with others, the committee actively conserves and enhances public open space lands that may contain trails, parks, sensitive natural resources, historical sites, view corridors, agriculture, or other open space or community values and appropriately invest in open space and recreational opportunities.

Meeting Time:

The OSRAC meeting meets on the first Tuesday of every month at 9 am. Agendas and meeting notices can be found here.
