Traditional community engagement usually involves attending scheduled meetings or submitting written correspondence to city staff or Council members. While we will always continue to offer these involvement opportunities, we realize that for members of our community, these methods can often be time consuming, inconvenient, and sometimes intimidating. Let's Talk Aurora will give you the opportunity to virtually share your thoughts and ideas on select project topics directly with city project staff.
Benefits of online engagement:
~It is a quick, safe and convenient way to have your say on a range of issues and topics.
~It is a great way to keep up to date and contribute your views on issues affecting your community.
~You can see what other community members think about an issue or topic, respond with your own views and engage in a discussion.

All comments, ideas and suggestions are collated and used by the relevant project teams to inform the development of strategies, programs and activities, or to gain an insight into community views and opinions. Often, feedback provided online is used in conjunction with other face-to-face consultation activities such as meetings, open houses or surveys. When each consultation closes, all contributions are compiled into a report, which will be presented to leadership when considering the particular matter. All feedback provided during consultation will be considered; however, this does not mean that every suggestion will affect the project or be adopted as proposed. Note: All comments you make through this website will become public records for anyone to read.
