A Message for the Community
I join the Aurora City Council and city staff in saying that our hearts are broken over the tragedy in Boulder, and we offer our deepest condolences to the families of the victims, the members of the Boulder Police Department and the entire Boulder community for their loss. We join the community in mourning those taken too soon, in solidarity in a desire for peace and comfort, and in anger over another senseless loss of life.
 
We have offered Boulder our assistance, and will be working closely with Boulder officials in whatever capacity that is needed. We encourage all Aurorans to join us in support of Boulder.
 
We know events happening in the community and the world can greatly impact each of us, and can be especially traumatic for members of our community who have endured past tragedies. It is critical that we take care of ourselves and each other. The Aurora Mental Health Center, which offers a range of services for the community, may be reached at 303.617.2300 or for drop-in services at the Connect to Care clinic, 791 Chambers Road.
 
We Need Your Input on 13th Avenue Corridor Mobility
The city is trying to find out how people are traveling on 13th Avenue in its first step to develop a plan to improve mobility along the corridor in Aurora.
 
Anyone who uses the corridor is invited to take a survey and share information on an interactive input map, both of which are available through June 30 at EngageAurora.org/13th.
 
This important corridor connects residents, students and businesses to their neighborhood, city and region and to places like schools, parks, a light rail station, trails, job centers, stores and restaurants.
 
This initial public outreach effort is launching the 13th Avenue Multimodal Mobility Study, which will create a community-driven plan to improve safety and mobility for pedestrians, bicyclists, drivers, transit riders and others along the corridor between Yosemite Street and the High Line Canal Trail.
 
A virtual public meeting will be scheduled June 30 to gather additional community feedback, with a link to register to attend available closer to that date at EngageAurora.org/13th.
 
To access the survey, map and project information, visit EngageAurora.org/13th. For questions, contact Tom Worker-Braddock at 303.739.7340 or tworker@auroragov.org.
