Draft Business Retention and Expansion Action Plan

As part of the Business Retention Plan launched in 2012, The Town of Aurora is circulating a draft action plan to support the retention and expansion of existing businesses. The draft plan is based on more than 150 interviews and subsequent consultations conducted by town staff, and provides businesses the opportunity to shape the direction and future of this program.

There were nine key results identified from the interviews and consultations conducted:

  • Continued smart and sustainable growth
  • Availability of appropriate space or land
  • Retaining and attracting businesses
  • Making sense of development approvals
  • Connecting businesses with residents
  • Business networking and joint marketing
  • Revitalizing downtown Aurora
  • Improving public transit
  • Increasing communication and support programs

These nine key results can be summarized into three groups: How we Grow, Services for Businesses and Enhancing Existing Resources. Some sample draft actions include improving online access to business information such as local job opportunities and real estate, improving Aurora Promenade accessibility for all modes of transportation and continuing to expand the business retention and expansion program with a commitment to visiting businesses within Aurora.
