EAGLE — The Eagle River Park — the new entryway amenity planned at the Eagle County Fairgrounds property — will be designed by a pair of valley firms.
After an extensive request for qualifications and request for proposal process, the Eagle Town Board voted Tuesday night to enter contract negotiations with Zehren & Associates, of Avon, and Alpine Engineering, of Edwards, to design the Eagle River Park.
“In addition to ultimately connecting downtown Eagle to the river, the park will provide a new venue for river recreation, for outdoor gatherings and events and a new ‘front door’ for the town of Eagle,” added Gary Brooks, principal with Alpine Engineering. “We are also looking forward to exploring environmental education and promoting the health and well being of the Eagle River, and using the project as an opportunity to demonstrate responsible landscape design and storm water management.”
