Aurora city council ward 4
Hazardous Tree Removal Program – The late spring freeze in 2015 caused damage to a large amount of trees in Aurora. In an effort to reduce the significant number of dead trees the Community Development Division established a grant funded program available city wide to income eligible homeowners. The program works in conjunction with notices issued by Forestry and Code Enforcement within the City of Aurora. Since tree removal can be costly and dangerous if not done by a professional, this program provides financial resources and professional tree removal of hazardous and dying trees to owner-occupied, income eligible households. To check eligibility or apply for this program or any other of the housing programs offered through Community Development Division, please call 303-739-7908. Please note that city owned trees are not eligible for removal under this program. Please contact Forestry at 303-739-7177.
The Aurora Public Library, in conjunction with the Colorado State Library and the educational publishing company, Gale, is now a provider of the Career Online High School, offering adults the opportunity to earn an accredited high school diploma and career certificate through the Career Online High School program.
