Developers plan to build homes on newly annexed and rezoned property along Eagle’s southwest gateway.
The Eagle City Council annexed and rezoned 107 acres owned by Steven Smith and the 80-acre Foxtail Golf Course that Wilson Holdings and Wilson Properties. The properties are on the north side of Chinden Road (U.S. 20-26) between Linder and Meridian roads.
Home construction is planned on most of both properties, said Mike Williams, an Eagle city planner. Commercial uses to complement Eagle Island Marketplace, a 39-acre commercial project the city approved last year, are planned on more than 20 acres of the Wilson property and 3 acres of the Smith property.
Annexing the Smith and Wilson properties enables Eagle to control the style of development on them, he said. Developers would build and pay for infrastructure extensions as construction happens, he said.
Eagle on Nov. 23 rezoned the Smith and Wilson properties from rural-urban transitional to mixed-use with a development agreement. Developers of both properties struck agreements with the city regulating what will be built.
“Developers now know what they’re going to build, and neighbors have a good idea what is going to be occurring on the property next to them,” Williams said.
Arizona-based Eisenberg Co. plans Eagle Island Marketplace at the northeast corner of Chinden and Linder. Construction has not started. A Fred Meyer grocery and department store is among planned occupants.
The three properties connect along one of Eagle’s gateways, Williams said. The Eagle Island Marketplace site is adjoined to the east by the Wilson property. The Smith property is bordered to the west by the Wilson property and to the east by Meridian Road.
