The Year Ahead – 2022

Although 2022 has not started how we hoped, there is reason for optimism as we chart the course for the year ahead. I see restrictions being lifted, businesses on the road to recovery, and our beautiful Town shining brighter than ever.

This year will be a busy one for our Town.

In addition to numerous ongoing infrastructure projects, we will see Aurora Town Square come to life and our Emerging Aurora campaign build awareness of the Town’s downtown revitalization and our innovative business community. 

And through the progression of our Sport Plan, we will see growth of sport tourism, increased access to facilities and broader programming for all.

Very importantly, there will be an even greater emphasis on Aurora’s inclusivity and diversity through stronger relations with cultural groups in our community and events showcasing our diverse culture; and we are fully committed to taking meaningful steps towards reconciliation with our Indigenous Community and Ancestors and will continue to create a respectful, environment that fosters educating future generations about truth and reconciliation.

And these are just some of the key highlights of what’s ahead.  There is plenty to look forward to as we have many engaging special events and initiatives planned!

On behalf of Town Council I would like to thank each of you for making our community an amazing place to live in. I look forward to continuing to work together and get things done for our community!
