HWC Engineering developed a comprehensive plan for the city of Aurora, Indiana. This plan helped the city find innovative ways to inject new energy into the city’s ongoing community development efforts.
The plan focuses on “Aurora’s Big 5 Ideas”:
1. Downtown revitalization
2. Neighborhood revitalization
3. Tourism and outdoor Recreation
4. Ohio River development
5. Quality of life and community connections
HWC helped the city organize their goals around these five ideas, resulting in an action-oriented plan with a clear direction and progressive steps toward implementation of the community’s long-term vision.
The approach is already seeing great results. The city leveraged the momentum from the comprehensive plan to obtain funding to develop a long-term vision for the revitalization of its riverfront. Also underway is a new park and recreation master plan.
