Open Space Committee

The Town Board created the Town of Aurora Open Space Committee in January 2007.

The mission of the committee is to inventory, evaluate and prioritize the Town of Aurora’s open space resources and work with the community to develop and promote a plan for the protection of these resources.

All meetings of the Open Space Committee are open to the public and are generally held the last Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m., at the Aurora Municipal Center, 575 Oakwood Avenue. The meeting in May 2024 will be held on the last Wednesday, and no meeting will be held in December 2024. For the updated meeting schedule, please visit the Town Calendar.



An Open Space Survey was completed between March and September of 2007. Some 326 surveys were completed and indicated that 86% of respondents favored protecting open space. Residents gave high priority to forests, woodlands and wildlife habitat, followed by stream corridors, wetlands, scenic views, and farmland. Using a 10-category ranking system, the committee identified parcels of open space land in the town with high natural resource value with priority for protection. Meetings with land owners have been held to answer questions about conservation easements and potential tax benefits for conservation easement donations. The Open Space Committee is working to update the existing Open Space Plan.
