Aurora Reservoir Master Plan Amendment

Published by Wheatlands Metro on

AURORA RESERVOIR PARKS AND WATER MASTER PLAN AMENDMENT 
TO INCLUDE THE SOUTHEAST RECREATION CENTER 
 
The City of Aurora invites you to attend a Virtual Public Hearing for an amendment to the Aurora Reservoir Parks and Water Master Plan. The hearing seeks approval from the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board on the amendment which proposes the following changes: 
• Addition of the Southeast Recreation Center and Access Road (See plans below) 

Project Description:  

The site for the new center is called Section 17 or Reservoir Community Park. This 600-acre property, conveyed to Aurora in 1984 by the federal government is designated for the sole purpose of parks and recreation uses in perpetuity as protected by the deed and city charter. Because Section 17 is included in the Aurora Reservoir Master Plan, the recreation center improvements will be added to this plan through a master plan amendment. Although the site is proposed as a future community park, this project planning and amendment is limited to the recreation center, which will be funded by marijuana tax revenues. 
 
Maps show the proposed Amendment to the Aurora Reservoir Master Plan depicting proposed road and recreation center location. The road will extend from the intersection of Harvest Road and Alexander Avenue. The recreation center location is in the northwest portion of the site near the Infinity Middle School site.  
 
The public hearing will be held as a special meeting of the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board via WebEx to be held at 5:00 pm, Wednesday, June 10, 2020.
