As of March 2020
Phase: Draft Study in development
We have started a study to decide if the City should build a new regional stormwater facility (RSF). RSFs have been built successfully by nearby cities. Benefits extend to the environment, the City, and developers. This approach allows lower costs and improved efficiency for stormwater management through one large facility instead of multiple smaller ones. The RSF being studied could help achieve the goals of the Aurora Square Community Renewal Area (CRA). Funding from developers is a primary objective for a possible City RSF.
Detailed analysis including comparison of alternatives, estimated costs, and potential funding mechanisms will be presented in the Boeing Creek Regional Stormwater Facility Feasibility Study. This study will be available to the public on this webpage upon completion.
The idea for a City RSF for Aurora Square first appeared in the December 2014 Aurora Square Planned Action Draft Environmental Impact Statement (Appendix C). The current study began in March 2017.
