Vision Driving Development: Aurora Corridor Development Initiative

Download (4 MB)

Communities too often are put in the position of reacting to a development proposal, rather than working to attract investment that fits the local vision. The Metropolitan Planning Council is reversing this dynamic through the Corridor Development Initiative (CDI), a three-part, participatory planning process that helps local residents understand issues such as density, affordable housing, mixed-use design, and the true cost of development, while establishing priorities to guide future development. The meeting series described in this report is a modification of CDI in the city of Aurora for its Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy Area.
