The town expects the project to be a three-to-four-year process that includes the adoption of a new independent Comprehensive Plan and Land Use and Development Code. The project will include robust community outreach and workshops, two citizen’s advisory committees, partner organization meetings, and work sessions and public meetings with appointed and elected officials. The town anticipates a Comprehensive Plan that is progressive and addresses emerging trends relevant to our community. The plan should lay out a clear vision for the community, include policies that will act as a blueprint for the town, and should provide actionable implementation strategies to achieve the vision as it is described. The following elements have been identified as key areas of focus for the community plan in no order: • Vision for the Town of Eagle • Community Values • Housing • Transportation • Hazard Mitigation and Disaster Preparedness • Recreation, Open Space, and Trails • Resource Management and Infrastructure • Community Resiliency • Economic Development • Community Service and Facilities • Environmental Stewardship The town anticipates a code that is based on an appropriate structure for the different types and forms of neighborhoods, commercial centers, and future development in the town. The town is open to a blend of code structures including form based zoning, performance zoning, and traditional zoning based on recommendations from the consultant team. The code should include, but not be limited to, the following elements: 1. Mixed-Use Zone Districts 2. Progressive and Sustainable Landscape Standards that support low-water use landscapes and other elements of the town’s water conservation and efficiency plan 3. Storm Water Regulations that support the quality and sustainability of our local waterways 4. Development Standards that supports the identification and mitigation of natural and human caused hazards 5. Sign and Lighting Codes that reflect current regulations and technology platforms 6. Land use application policies and procedures 7. High quality visual references that support a user-friendly experience (images, graphics, tables, etc.) 8. Clear design guidelines that support quality design but that foster creativity
