How do I set up a neighborhood group?

If you or someone in your neighborhood are interested in starting up a neighborhood community group you can contact City of Aurora Community Coordinator, Cheryl Maraffio.  Cheryl can be reached at 630-256-3400. Cheryl will be able to provide you with a neighborhood group start up packet and also assist you with any questions regarding neighborhood groups and how they operate.
