Dear Aurora voter,
In this busy election season, it is easy to overlook important local ballot issues that have a great impact on everyday life in Aurora.
Your November ballot will include an important question that will impact the city’s ability to provide a safe and efficient environment for vehicle, bicycle and pedestrian traffic throughout Aurora.
Renewing this existing tax would cost $2.70 per month for someone living in a $200,000 home – less than the price of a gallon of gas — well worth the benefit of wider streets, reduced traffic, safer intersections and better mobility for pedestrians and bicyclists.
Whether you drive, bike, walk – or all three – your day-to-day mobility will be greatly improved by the results of this important question for Aurora’s future. And it won’t cost you any more in property taxes than you’re paying right now.
For better roads, safer sidewalks and more bicycle routes, we urge you to vote YES on Question 2B on this November’s ballot.
Mayor Steve Hogan
On Behalf Of the Aurora Moves Initiative Steering Committee
Key supporters include: Aurora Chamber of Commerce, Aurora Police Assn., Aurora Firefighters Local 1290, Bicycle Aurora, the Aurora Assn. of Realtors, Move Colorado, Transportation Solutions, and many Aurora City Councilmembers, businesses, and individuals.
PS – More information on 2B and its 21 transportation projects is below.
