Once a burgeoning hinterland town of ranchers just eastward of the state’s capital, Aurora is Colorado’s third most populous city with a diverse community of more than 381,000. From rural outpost to military bastion, Aurora built its foundation as a driving force in the west, and the rest is history.
The city of Aurora is a full-service city ruled by a council/manager plan of government, which links the political power of elected officials with the managerial expertise of a delegated local government manager.
At 160 square miles, the city stretches into Arapahoe, Adams and Douglas divisions. Aurora’s necessary general plan indicates the development of comfortable, full-service communities.
Aurora gives way to quality education. Four school communities and 12 campuses of more extraordinary education meeting the instructional needs of citizens and those behind the city limits. The city’s yearly Aurora Scholars schedule honors a student in every category in every school in Aurora.
Each citizen has a right to demand a safe city and to believe that they will be treated in an emergency. Nearly 60 percent of the city’s overall fund budget continues Aurora’s public safety functions. Aurora is Colorado’s most reliable large city.
