Westerly Creek Village
Questions about this Topic?

The future is here.

In 2013, community meetings and extensive planning efforts resulted in a vision detailed extensively in the Westerly Creek Village Community Plan. Varied housing styles. A thriving, vibrant and safe community. A mix of shops, restaurants and businesses. A sense of place. These phrases are a part of that vision, and it is a vision that is already coming to fruition in 2015.

Westerly Creek Village Urban Renewal Plan

The Westerly Creek Village was adopted by the Aurora City Council in January 2013 and amended in April 2015.  A second amendment currently being considered would create two new tax increment financing (TIF) areas for the Stapleton Aurora project.

A draft of the proposed amendment can be viewed below:

The adoption of the urban renewal plan was a major milestone in the completion of a community planning process 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.

Community vision workshops took place in 2011.The blight designation required prior to the establishment of an urban renewal area under Colorado law was approved by the Aurora City Council in 2012 following a public hearing. The Westerly Creek Amendment to the city's Comprehensive Plan also was adopted by the city council in 2012.

Other progress in the redevelopment of this area included connecting Iola, Fulton and Kingston streets to Stapleton, and a FEMA grant awarded to the city of Aurora for flood control improvements at Westerly Creek and Montview Boulevard.
