Whether it’s a neighborhood with tree-lined streets that you’re seeking or the security that comes from knowing you’re in one of the nation’s safest cities, you’ll find it in Aurora. The city was founded on a sense of community and that tradition continues today. Aurora’s government cares about its communities and provides many services to the people who live here. Here you will find neighborhood grant programs, home ownership assistance, neighborhood libraries and your own community television station. And don’t forget safety. Aurora is home to one of the finest police and fire departments in the metro area. Founded in 1891, the city of Aurora was originally named Fletcher by its founder, former Chicago resident Donald Fletcher. Fletcher, who had made a lot of money by developing Denver's Capitol Hill, had the idea of developing the prairie land east of Denver and connecting it to the city by a trolley line. He was successful in bringing his idea to fruition, and constructed 14 houses along what is now Galena Street. In 1907, the town changed its name to Aurora. During World War I, the U.S. Government decided to build a hospital to treat the wounded – especially those affected by mustard gas and tuberculosis. Because Colorado’s climate was known for its beneficial effect on lung ailments, Aurora was chosen as the site of Fitzsimons Army Hospital in 1921. In 1929, Colorado’s Secretary of State recognized Aurora as a city, and tax revenues were appropriated for sewers, roads and fire stations. Aurora’s population at this time was 2,000, and most of the citizens were located just south of Colfax Avenue – an area that is now called Original Aurora. The city has come a long way since 1891. Today, Aurora is a booming, progressive city with a population of more than 290,000 residents, making it the third most populous city in Colorado.

The beginnings of Littleton can be traced to the "Pikes Peak" gold rush of 1859. Along with the gold-seekers came merchants and farmers to provide the necessities of life. As the fledgling metropolis of Denver City began to grow, the need arose to construct a series of ditches to carry water to farms and businesses without ready access to rivers and creeks in this arid land. Among the engineers hired to lay out this system was young Richard Sullivan Little of New Hampshire. Surveying in an area several miles south of Denver, Little fell in love with the site of present-day Littleton. Upon filing a home stake and other land claims, Richard brought his wife Angeline from the East in 1862, the dry climate all but curing her asthmatic condition, and began to farm. Agriculture remained the staple industry of Littleton until after World War II. Beginning with electronics and pneumatics, moving to munitions and finally to aerospace, manufacturing became the important employer and a magnet for the boom in housing development during the fifties, sixties and seventies. Littleton added Arapahoe Community College in 1965 and Chatfield Reservoir in 1972 to further enhance its appeal. When Littleton celebrated its centennial in 1990, its population had grown to 33,661.

The Sloan’s Lake neighborhood in Denver is bounded roughly by Colfax on the south, Sheridan on the west, 29th on the north, and Irving on the east. Most of the land within that area is occupied by one of Denver’s most prized parks and one of the state’s largest recreational lakes. Although swimming is not permitted in the lake, boating and rowing are popular summertime activities on the water. Additionally, the park has tennis courts, basketball courts, soccer fields, picnic areas, and miles of paths popular with pedestrians and cyclists. Initially owned by Thomas Sloan as far back as 1866, the land was initially used as a farm and cattle ranch. According to legend, Sloan tried to dig a well on his property and tapped into a very high water table! Water flooded most of his land, and the lake was created. In the 1870s a canal was created between the lake and Cheltenham Heights – an area located roughly near Colfax and Federal today. For a short time steamship cruises were offered along the canal and around the lake. In the 1890s a small, private amusement park called Manhattan Beach was created along the southern shore of the lake, which was outlasted by nearby Lakeside and Elitch’s amusement parks. In 1906 the land was purchased by Denver’s Park System, and in the 1930s Sloan Lake was connected to the adjacent Cooper Lake, creating the shape of the lake familiar to residents today. Real Estate prices in the neighborhood are generally above the Denver average, currently in the mid to upper $200,000s. Areas north of the lake are generally more expensive as a result of the areas proximity to the popular West Highlands District at 32nd and Lowell. Houses in the area were generally built in the 1920s and 1930s, with later development and infill projects lasting into the 1950s. In parts of the neighborhood, some houses and duplexes are being replaced with brand new construction single family homes and duplexes. However, the city recently “downzoned” some of these areas preventing future duplex development. The future of the Sloan’s Lake area looks great. The Highlands District to the north continues to gain popularity, and the city has a strong interest in making Colfax Avenue along the south side of the neighborhood into something better than it is today. Also, St. Anthony’s, a large hospital complex on the south side of the lake, is planning a move farther west into Lakewood. Approximately 16 acres will be rezoned and redeveloped, which will undoubtedly attract new residential and retail projects just as Stapleton and Lowry did years earlier.
