Strategic Plan

City Center area of Aurora with a lake and fountain and buildings in the backgroundThe city of Aurora is developing its first-ever citywide strategic plan, which will be designed to ensure the community's needs are aligned with the city's policies, procedures and services in the coming years.

This plan will serve as a detailed guide for how the city shapes the community's future and serve as a blueprint for city employees to follow when considering how to best provide services to residents.

The strategic plan will build on community input collected during the city's Aurora Places comprehensive planning process. Residents and local businesses helped drive the goals in Aurora Places, which focus on a strong economy, diversity and equity, housing for all, a healthy community, a thriving environment, an authentic Aurora, easy mobility and active transportation. These goals will guide city departments in creating action steps within the strategic plan.


Public Outreach

Thank you to everyone who participated in our Oct. 1 virtual public meeting to gather feedback on the strategic plan or took the survey that was posted through Nov. 2. Visit this link to view a video recording of this meeting. 


Next Steps

Taking into consideration the public feedback that was gathered, city staff has developed strategic priorities, among other efforts. The draft plan was presented at the City Council's Feb. 20 Winter Workshop, where the Council was able to provide comments.

Staff has begun the process of incorporating the comments and working on key performance indicators for the outcomes along with departmental plans. Once the departmental plans are complete, they will be combined with the overall strategic priorities and presented to the City Council for final approval.
