The City of Aurora and the Aurora Housing Authority (AHA) engaged ULI Chicago and the Metropolitan Planning Council (MPC) to conduct a two-day Technical Assistance Panel taking place July 11-12, 2013. The purpose of the panel is to determine the most appropriate use for the 13-acre Jericho Circle site owned by the AHA, as well as recommend other strategies for the City and AHA to pursue to create additional housing opportunities throughout the City of Aurora. The panel will also explore the impact of the foreclosure crisis on neighborhood stabilization and shifts in Aurora’s demographic composition over the past decade. Panel members toured the Jericho Circle site today to inform their discussions. Review the panel Scope of Work for City of Aurora & Aurora Housing Authority: Housing Strategies for the Future TAP
