May 2019 - Recent State Legislative measures that provide more opportunities for local regulation and jurisdiction. The City Council will look into all of these novel areas of involvement. 

Aurora wants to help spruce up neighborhoods and is offering Neighborhood Beautification Grants of up to $5,000 per neighborhood group in 2019.

 The grants promote projects that improve the physical condition of a neighborhood, enhance pride and identity, promote self-reliance and increase neighborhood communication. The city has allocated up to $60,000 for grants for 2019, with a maximum of $10,000 for each of the city’s six council wards.

Residents who are interested must attend one of three pre-application meetings in January to learn more about the application process and talk with various city departments about potential project considerations, such as permits, lane closures and any associated fees:

  • 6 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 16 – Aurora Municipal Center City Council Chamber, 15151 E. Alameda Parkway
  • 6 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 22 – Moorhead Recreation Center, 2390 Havana St.
  • 6 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 23 – Tallyn’s Reach Library, 23911 E. Arapahoe Road

To attend any of the meetings, RSVP to 303.739.7280.

After the meeting, all application materials must be submitted by March 31. All projects selected to receive grant funding must be completed by Oct. 31.

Program details and examples of past grant recipients are available at

Eligible projects must be within Aurora city limits, not be intended for individual private residential property except for city right-of-way, provide an identifiable benefit to the neighborhood, have a specific timeline, and involve at least three households in the neighborhood.

Iliff Ave. and S. Joliet St. this is east of S. Havana and west of S. Lima. Unfortunately this space is smaller than the Ecotech site and we will not have the benefit of tables. There are about 40 chairs available but it will be tight. Hopefully the Ecotech facility can be reopened.
