Special events, of all kinds, can contribute many social, cultural and financial benefits to a community. In recognition of these benefits, it is the policy of the City of Aurora to encourage events which:
Add to the quality of life for our residents
Present a positive image for the City
Promote tourism and attract visitors
Revitalize downtown and neighborhoods
Showcase local talent
Target cross-cultural communication
The City of Aurora has established policies and procedures that will allow for the advanced planning and management of personnel, financial resources, and public properties under its control. These policies and procedures will provide a system, common information and basic ground rules, which allow the City and Special Event Sponsors to achieve their mutual goals.
