Aurora Housing Study

Aurora is experiencing housing conditions similar to many communities in the metro area: Low- and moderate-income households are struggling to keep up with rising housing costs, and this has been exacerbated by job losses associated with the COVID-19 outbreak; and the supply of housing across the income spectrum is very limited.

In 2019, the city of Aurora initiated a study to identify a broad range of potential policy, financial and regulatory tools to address housing affordability. While the city has provided housing and community development programs to support the development of housing and housing services, additional options for funding and programs would expand the city’s effectiveness in ensuring that the current and future housing needs of workforce, families and residents across the age and income spectrum are met.

This Aurora Housing Study focuses on the most effective, efficient and outcome-proven methods to expand housing options in the city, with a focus on:

  • Increasing and leveraging existing resources to address housing needs
  • Setting housing goals and manage housing investments to achieve those goals
  • Preserving existing housing while increasing the supply of housing for households across the income spectrum
  • Improving regulatory processes as needed to reduce the cost of housing development 



In response to specific recommendations found within the Aurora Housing Study document, the city is seeking feedback from residents and interested parties. Complete the housing study survey by Oct. 16, 2020:


The purpose of this survey is to understand the community’s support for the policy and strategy recommendations found in the Housing Study draft. The feedback provided will help the city validate its recommendations and prioritize its actions toward addressing the housing issues facing Aurora. Additionally, this is an opportunity to identify model programs, best practices, and case studies to help implement the priority recommendations.
