Original Aurora Zoning Update Public Meeting
- This event has passed.
The city of Aurora is hosting a series of public meetings this summer to supply information and gather feedback on a proposed zoning update for the Original Aurora area, which is bordered by Yosemite Street (west), Peoria Street (east), East 11th Avenue (south) and East 26th Avenue (north). The meetings are scheduled from 6 to 8 p.m. June 15, July 13 and Aug. 24 at the Martin Luther King Jr. Library, 9898 E. Colfax Ave. The public is encouraged to attend all three meetings as each one will highlight new topics and issues.
Zoning creates rules for what may be built on property and how that property may be changed. The proposed plan would update the zoning along key corridors in Original Aurora from single-use zoning (for example, commercial only) to mixed-use zoning. This zoning update could allow for complementary uses. It would allow housing, shops, restaurants and offices to be located closer together, creating more services, things to do and jobs close to home, and put more “eyes on the street” to increase public safety. It also would potentially attract new businesses to the area while at the same time protect single-family homes, increase options for property owners, improve property values and quality of life, and create new living options in Original Aurora.
