Environmental Resources

All city departments have a role in making sustainability a priority.  Key departments including Parks, Recreation and Open Space; Aurora Water; Planning & Development Services; and Public Works have a lead role in protecting our water, land, air, and other valuable natural resources. Check out the links below to resources and information for a wide range of environmental topics.
