The city of Aurora is creating a new plan over the next 18 months that will help to guide city leaders for another decade and beyond. We’re calling it Aurora Places, and it will represent a collective vision for Aurora’s future. While a project team from the Planning & Development Services Department is leading the effort, this plan will serve the entire community and city organization.

This comprehensive plan will serve as a foundation for decision-making in the city. It will establish policies and recommendations related to land use and development, neighborhood livability and housing, transportation and mobility, community health and sustainability, economic vitality, cultural diversity, community life and more.

The plan will be built on a foundation of community participation and feedback. City employees offer a unique perspective on Aurora, the challenges it will face and the opportunities the future may hold. Whether you call Aurora home or simply your home away from home, make sure your voice is heard through any or all of these methods:

  1. Visit, fill out a survey and take part in the interactive mapping activity. This site is the best resource for information throughout the process.
  2. The city is hosting a series of public workshops next month. Attend any one of these dates:

Sept. 20, 7 to 8:30 p.m., North Middle School, 12095 Montview Blvd. (also available in Spanish)

Sept. 22, 2 to 3:30 p.m., Aurora Association of Realtors, 14201 E. Evans Drive (also available in Amharic)

Sept. 22, 7 to 8:30 p.m., Cherokee Trail High School, 25901 E. Arapahoe Road (also available in Korean)

  1. The Aurora Places project team has developed the “DIY Workshop Kit,” a guided discussion to identify Aurora’s challenges, opportunities and assets. If you would like a representative of our project team to facilitate this activity with your managers or staff, please contact Daniel Krzyzanowski directly at 303.739.7187 or The activity takes about 1 hour and is designed to accommodate roughly 10 to 20 participants.

For additional information about the project or these input opportunities, contact Bob Watkins or Daniel Krzyzanowski with the Planning & Development Services Department.
