Downtown Aurora


About Us:

Aurora Downtown is an association of approximately 250 property owners within the neighborhood generally bounded by Lincoln Avenue, Lake Street, Spring Street and Clark Street. We are a Special Service Area, governed by a 24-member board of directors, half of whom are elected by the general membership. The remaining directors are appointed by various agencies that have an interest in downtown Aurora. We tax ourselves at a rate of 1% of our property's equalized assessed valuation. The money collected is used for improvements to the neighborhood such as:

Sponsorship of events, including Aurora ArtWalk and Alley Art Festival

Holiday decorations featuring an 8-story signature shooting star and tree atop the historic Leland Tower (Fox Island Apartments)

Street planters, hanging baskets, trees and landscaping

An infrastructure maintenance partnership with the City of Aurora

Marketing and promoting the downtown

Aurora Downtown does its work through active committees, open to any business or property owner wishing to help improve the neighborhood. The Aurora Downtown partnership includes the Aurora Area Convention and Visitors Bureau, the Aurora Civic Center Authority, the Aurora Economic Development Commission, the Greater Aurora Chamber of Commerce, the Aurora Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, the City of Aurora, Hollywood Casino-Aurora and Waubonsee Community College.
