Mike’s idea to build a River Walk in Downtown Aurora occurred in August 1987. Mike has created a historical perspective of our River Walk in Aurora with a presentation to share with people. Mike has shared his power point presentation to many groups and organizations over the years: Like Rotary, Sunrise Rotary, Kiwanis, Aurora Downtown, Garden Club, and many neighborhood groups through out City over these many years. Mike says, our River Walk is a fine example of a team effort with people working together to improve our City and especially our wonderful downtown.
Our Aurora Downtown has beautifully changed over the years!! Thanks to the River Walk Commission and all who helped make this possible!! Mike knows that the downtown has significantly changed for the better with the implementation of the FoxWalk Design Guidelines, implementing the streetscape standards, guiding development, and the building of sections of our Riverwalk. Our downtown is looking better while bringing more people into the heart of our City along our beautiful Fox River.
