  • Introducing: Aurora Town Square

    Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

    On June 22, 2021, the Library Square project, the centerpiece of the Town’s ambitious downtown revitalization plan, was officially renamed Aurora Town Square. The new name, approved by Aurora Council following a public engagement process, was carefully chosen to reflect an age-old desire for communities to share a space of belonging and celebration.

    Officially opening in 2022, it will feature outdoor and indoor cultural spaces that offer unlimited possibilities.

    Key features include:

    • A vibrant, 29,000-square-foot outdoor community space animated by a skating track in winter that can be turned into a water feature in the summer, an amphitheater/ performance space, art installation spaces, community event space, and an enclosed bridge between the Library and the Church Street School addition.

    • A spectacular 32,000-square-foot addition to the beloved Church Street School facility that will feature a flexible performance hall with seating for up to 250 patrons in Theatre style, multi-purpose arts programming spaces, visual arts studio, a beautiful café, and more.

    • Major updates at the Aurora Public Library, including a new entrance and programming spaces, and a roof-top reading garden, which will make it even more accessible and user-friendly.

    Beginning the week of April 12, the contractor will begin to create structural foundations (caissons) for the addition to 22 Church St. Large drilling equipment will be moved on site. Due to the nature of this work, there is a potential for dust and construction-related noise from equipment and trucks. Daily construction will generally occur Monday to Friday, between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. The public is encouraged to use caution in this area. Please cross at designated crosswalks, follow posted signs, and be alert when walking near the construction zone.

    Months into the construction of the Town’s newest community facility in the heart of the downtown, Chandos Construction has undertaken extensive demolition and excavation of the Library Square site, including the installation of construction fencing around the perimeter of the property.

    Phase 1 of the fencing is inspired by the Town of Aurora community, emphasizing the people who will use the space and who give Aurora its liveliness, purpose, and vitality.
