If Arizona-based developer M3 gains approval for their new planned development in the Eagle Foothills, the City of Eagle will grow by another 12,000 homes.
The population of Eagle has risen from 11,000 to 19,000 in the past few years, thanks to the area’s exceptional quality-of-life and a hot real estate market.
M3’s proposal drew complaints from local citizens during their first Planning & Zoning Commission meeting earlier this week; primarily over concerns about additional traffic being routed through downtown Eagle’s already-congested streets.
Following the meeting, the Ada County Highway District asked that the development plans be tabled until they can develop plans and costs for badly-needed streets and roads to accomodate the growth.
The proposal will be taken up again at the Planning & Zoning Commission meeting on October 30th.
