The Pacifica Square Aurora Business District No. 1 is located north of New York Street, west of Route 59, south of Drexel Avenue. The proposed Business District includes the existing shopping center and the office building to the south of it.
The City, recognizing that economic development initiatives can offer the opportunity to include property and sales tax revenues, developed the Aurora Business District No. 1 in an effort to maintain and strengthen City retail, commercial and mixed use redevelopment advantages, preserving area strengths, and maintaining retail and commercial uses.
Within the Aurora Business District No. 1 (Pacifica Square Business District) a 1% service occupation tax and a hotel operators' occupation tax is imposed.
