Like most of the Treasure Valley, the city of Eagle is growing, but not just by population. I'm your Eagle neighborhood reporter Alexander Huddleston, and after a group of concerned citizens petitioned to undo Eagle's annexation of Avimor, a judge decided the deal is done.

The petition was filed by SOS Eagle, a group of Eagle citizens claiming the annexation would negatively impact their property values.

This week, Judge Johnathan Medema ruled their arguments lacked standing and therefore dismissed the case. The judge's ruling confirms last year's plan, adding more than 70k acres into the city of Eagle.
