About the Aurora Historic Sites and Preservation Office (AHSPO)


Within Aurora’s local government, historic preservation is conducted by two main entities: the Aurora Historic Sites and Preservation Office (AHSPO) and the Aurora Historic Preservation Commission (HPC). 

The AHSPO is tasked with all aspects of historic preservation including the maintenance of city-owned historic landmarks, assistance in landmark nominations, and reviewing federally funded projects that affect historic buildings (NHPA Sec. 106). The AHSPO also commissions reconnaissance and intensive surveys as well as manages grant-funded restorations and renovations.

The Aurora City Council established the Historic Preservation Commission in 1985 by Chapter 8, Article XXII in the Aurora Code to assist residents in the preservation of unique community assets, both archaeological and historical. Its mission is to administer and enforce provisions of the Code. This eleven member citizens commission works to promote and preserve Aurora's historic resources through community outreach and a landmarking program. 

The HPC meets on the second Tuesday of each month at 6:00 p.m. in the Aurora History Museum’s Community Gallery. Commission meetings are open to the public. To learn more, click the link above.
