Give Input for 13th Avenue and Colfax Plan Updates
Posted on 02/15/2024
A map shows the location of the planning area surrounding the Colfax and 13th Avenue rail stations.

In preparation for several potential development opportunities, the city of Aurora is updating the 13th Avenue and Fitzsimons-Colfax station area plan and creating an urban renewal plan for the area.

The community is encouraged to provide feedback in two ways as part of this process:

-Take a short survey at
-Attend a public meeting from 6 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 6, at East Middle School, 1275 Fraser St.

Once complete, the plans will capture the community’s vision and collectively plan for new development and public improvements in this important area of Aurora.

A single station area plan was adopted in 2009 for the 13th Avenue and Colfax rail stations. Much has changed in the past 15 years. Through an analysis of current conditions and community engagement, the goal is to create and adopt two plans that will reflect the city’s current needs and address land use, transportation, housing, and public improvements.

The new station area plan will reflect recently updated citywide plans and policies, and consider new input from the community that lives, works, shops and travels within the area.

This updated plan will serve as the foundation for creating an urban renewal plan for the area. The adoption of an urban renewal plan will allow the city to use tax increment financing to fund important public infrastructure that supports new development and investment in the area.
