The Aurora Sentinel recently backed Aurora Referendum 2B.

Now here’s an easy decision to make on this year’s election ballot. With a “yes” vote on Aurora Question 2B, voters can approve a long list of important road, bike and pedestrian transportation projects across the city, and not raise taxes.

Count us in.

The measure makes use of taxes Aurora residents are already paying; should voters approve 2B, property taxes won’t go up.

In exchange for that mill-levy extension, the city will be able to finance about $74 million in badly needed transportation improvements.

It’s a good deal.

Why roads? Because they keep the city moving in more ways than one. To keep Aurora economically growing, the city must maintain the roads we’ve got, and improve others to allow for all kinds of expansion and addition.
