Aurora Cultural Master Plan

The Town of Aurora is developing its first Cultural Master Plan. The Plan will create a cultural vision for our Town and develop strategies to support culture and broader economic development goals.

The first step in the Cultural Master Plan is to complete a cultural mapping exercise, to develop a list of cultural resources in our community. The next step will be to engage our community to help shape the vision, directions and priorities of the Cultural Master Plan. We will contact culture and heritage groups, businesses and interested residents for feedback.

Council has appointed a working group to support the development of the Cultural Master Plan. This group includes Town staff, as well as cultural and community representatives.

Please check back regularly for project updates.
