Aurora Business Registration Program-UPDATE


In April 2019, the Aurora City Council voted unanimously to approve the establishment of the Aurora Business Registration Program (ABRP). The program is set to begin in the first quarter of 2020. In the interim, staff will be holding information sessions for Aurora businesses. During the sessions, staff will discuss all elements of the program, walk business owners through the registration form and provide businesses the option to register onsite, at the information session.

For additional information pertaining to the ramp-up and launch of the Aurora Business Registration Program, please contact John Curley, Chief Development Services Officer, jcurley@aurora-il.org, 630-256-3131.


What is the Aurora Business Registration Program ?

The ABRP is a proposal being developed by staff that will have all current and future businesses operating within Aurora to submit a completed registration form to the City of Aurora.

Why was the Aurora Business Registration Program proposal developed?

Business operations can involve the use and storing of chemicals, can have fire/smoke alarms, and can have licensed firearms on the premises. When this information is not available to our public safety personnel, it’s is not only a potential safety concern for public safety staff, it can pose a similar concern to business employees and to the general public. The ABRP will capture this (and limited economic development related) data that will be shared with designated City of Aurora staff so that they are better informed and equipped to provide services to our business owners.

We are interested in receiving your comments, questions and suggestions as we continue to develop this program concept. Please review Documents in our Library; Share a Thought in the Idea section; Add a Question to the Q & A section; and Add a Comment to the Forum section. We are listening.
