Hearings, Meetings and Other Actions 


The Westerly Creek Urban Renewal Plan was adopted by the Aurora City Council Jan. 28, 2013.  

The adoption of the urban renewal plan is a major milestone in the completion of a community planning process which was largely funded by the Environmental Protection Agency's Brownfields Area-Wide Planning Pilot Program. The Westerly Creek Community Plan summarizes and incorporates this community planning process as well as the related plans and studies, including the Urban Renewal Plan.  All of these documents can be downloaded below.
