Thank you to all who participated during Phase 1 of the Official Plan Review! To confirm we understood your feedback, please complete the Vision Survey under the Survey tool towards the bottom of this page. The Vision Survey will help finalize the future vision for the Town and will guide us during Phase 2 of the project.

Welcome! Engage Aurora is an interactive, digital space for you to provide valuable input to the Town of Aurora’s Official Plan Review. This webpage serves as a central hub for you to visit and receive ongoing project updates. It is also a great place to interact with other members of the community on important issues, as we collectively build and envision Aurora’s future together.

Aurora’s Official Plan

Help build Aurora’s future - how it looks, feels, moves and the opportunities for jobs and services.

Aurora is growing! In order to plan for and accommodate this growth the Town is reviewing and updating its Official Plan which is now ten years old. The Province, through its policies and plans including A Place to Grow: Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe and the Provincial Policy Statement, require the Town to accommodate growth by planning to meet the Province’s targets for people and jobs.

The Official Plan sets out the goals, objectives and policies to manage and direct physical change and the effects on the social, economic, built and natural environment of the municipality.

The Official Plan consists of policies that guide things like:

  • Where housing, industry, offices, shops and roads should go;
  • What parts of Town will be the focus for growth and what that growth will look like (e.g. how tall will buildings be?);
  • How to promote, enhance and protect our stable neighbourhoods and heritage assets;
  • Which services and amenities (e.g. parks, schools, cycling paths) are needed and where they will be located; and
  • How to plan for the impacts of climate change and meet environmental targets.

Please see the Timeline on the right side of this page to learn about past project milestones and future phases of the Official Plan Review.
