Aurora Downtown is a charitable organization within the city of Aurora that was established in 1975 “to do all things necessary to combat community deterioration by improving, redeveloping, aiding and assisting business enterprises and persons” in the downtown business area.
Aurora Downtown’s mission of making downtown Aurora a premier destination for arts, culture, entertainment, dining, living, and working.
As such, Aurora Downtown is governed by a 22-person volunteer board of both standing and elected directors. Elected directors serve three-year terms and must be nominated by a downtown property owner.
Nomination forms were mailed out to downtown property owners in July and are due back by August 15.
At-large directors can be downtown property owners, downtown business owners or managers, or anyone who has particular knowledge, training, or experience which would aid in downtown development.
The Aurora Downtown board of directors represent Special Service Area (SSA) #One within the downtown business district, and govern the funds that the SSA tax collects annually from downtown property owners.
