Whew! Looks like Eagle dodged the flood bullet! They’ve announced that
river flows probably won’t get any higher; in fact they might soon be receding.
And, as if in celebration, the Eagle City Council has unanimously approved the new
“Laguna Pointe” subdivision, on Eagle Island, near the notorious South Channel.
Laguna Pointe sounds pretty sweet – 56 big lots along a 43-acre lake with
sandy beaches and bass fishing.
Only time will tell if those 56 new well-heeled families will join their Island
Woods neighbors in future lawsuits. (Laguna Pointe IS in the flood plain.) We didn’t make the Eagle Council meeting, but no doubt the houses are to be raised enough so only the lawns will flood in the future.
