“I can’t remember, in my 32 years with the City of Aurora, ever having this much infrastructure going on!” said Dave Chambers, Director of Public Works for the City of Aurora.
Chambers and Mac Callison, Planning Supervisor with the City, presented a detailed update of facility and transportation projects to The Chamber’s Transportation committee on December 7, 2016.
“Public Safety is a priority, and there are numerous projects underway to improve Public Safety in Aurora including fencing and lighting at District 1 and 2, roof replacement at the Court and Detention Center, and health and safety-related remodels at 13 existing fire stations,” said Chambers.
Regarding Transportation-specific projects, Callison listed DRCOG TIP and City Funded Projects for bike/pedestrians.
