Sentinel Colorado: Aurora approves pledge to regional effort to reduce homelessness

May 20, 2021

AURORA | After a week of debate and public back and forth, the Aurora City Council has decided to join a pledge to reduce homelessness across the metroplex by working with the Metro Denver Homeless Initiative using the Built for Zero framework.

Three Aurora City Councilmembers — Dave Gruber, Marsha Berzins and Francoise Bergan — opposed the pledge during Monday’s meeting. Gruber said he was concerned the agreement would mean the city is submitting a “blank check” to the cause.
