We were excited to buy here and are now going on our 3 months in Eagle. The rating comes after talking at length to someone who has lived in the Boise area all his life and in the business field, shared some unknown things about Eagle. They do have a high theft/burglary crime rate here, even in the upscale Legacy community. Also shared is that Eagle is in a flood zone; 1996 this whole area flooded but current research on this says this is not likely to happen anytime soon. And with Costco and Win-Co foods coming soon as well as the new Linder Village in Meridian, traffic will only get worse! And what they are doing towards improving the infrastructure won't be nearly enough to make it better. Then, the bigger issue, is that the 'bottom will eventually fall out' due to home price inflation...he says it's bound to happen. That will be the time to sell and move further north.

Eagle is a nice little outskirt of Boise. Do not move here to make a career. There is nothing going on, even with all the development. It's retail only. More importantly, many people here are jaw-droppingly stupid, the most uneducated in the country it seems. Strangely, many are not even from Idaho. They have moved in from California trying to "escape" but brought all their idiocy and low-class lifestyles with them. In the middle of a pandemic, many residents refused to wear a mask. Hosting out of state guests every week like it's just a normal Tuesday. Church services packed because God apparently looks out for these people. Uh huh. To contrast: Boise is the relatively liberal area. Eagle is full of entitled MAGA minions who refuse to deal with reality. This includes the numerous contractors who traipse in and out of town with their MAGA trucks. Since they cannot afford to live here, and have to drive in from two counties away, they wear resentment on their faces.
Eagle is a great family friendly town. It has a small town feel, but is just minutes away from Boise, where you can enjoy the amenities of a large city. Because Eagle is about 45 minutes from downtown Boise, commutes can be a little long depending on where you work. However, the trade off is worth it.

Eagle is very safe and as a result kids are often walk to school, play outside, go to parks, etc., which is not always possible in larger cities.

Affordability depends on your perspective. Eagle is one of the more expensive areas in the Boise area. Housing prices have also increased drastically in recent years. However, housing prices are still relatively cheap in comparison to other states like California. However, it's becoming more and more of a struggle for native residents.
