Imagine an inclusive, growing, family-oriented community that retains its small-town charm and celebrates heritage, arts and culture. A place where friendly neighbours gather at community events and public spaces to enjoy a summer evening. An integrated community seamlessly connected by trails and open space that promotes green energy and provides accessible and convenient alternatives to driving through improved transit operations and mixed use development. A place with a stable and thriving economy that includes a mix of small and large-scale businesses, access to local goods and services, employment opportunities for residents and a revitalized downtown core. This place is Aurora in 2031.
The Town's community vision summarizes the picture of Aurora described above. The vision was developed based on the research, interviews (internal and external stakeholders), online input (community at large), community engagement, visioning sessions and workshops. Our vision for Aurora in 2031 is:
An innovative and sustainable community where neighbours care and businesses thrive.
