Comprehensive Plan

Aurora Places Plan Adopted

The Aurora City Council adopted the Aurora Places comprehensive plan in September 2018, and it became effective Oct. 27, 2018. The adopted plan is now posted.

Aurora Places, the city's comprehensive plan, serves as a foundation for decision-making related to growth and development in Aurora. It presents a vision for the future, with long-range goals and recommended actions for a variety of public activities.

The plan addresses topics including land use, transportation, housing, economic development, natural resources, parks and open space, community identity and more. Aurora Places describes challenges and opportunities that face the community and articulates the city's vision and values for how it wants to grow and develop.

The plan emphasizes the importance of creating and improving the variety and types of places throughout the city. These "placetypes" include dynamic urban districts, attractive and convenient commercial and industrial areas, beautiful regional parks and open space, districts for employment and innovation, and several types of distinctive neighborhoods.

Aurora Places community outreach meeting

Public outreach and engagement was crucial to the creation of Aurora Places. The information and feedback collected from residents, business owners and other community stakeholders was critical in both understanding the community's concerns, aspirations and priorities, and responding effectively to the city's needs.
