AURORA, Colo. — Just in time for the warmer weather months, the City of Aurora is launching a new block party permit process beginning this month, along with a new movie kit program.

According to a press release, both efforts are designed to encourage neighborhood gatherings that build trust among neighbors and strengthen community connections.

Below are the requirements for block party permits: 

  • Two different households on the block must apply for the permit
  • Permit applications must be submitted at least 14 days in advance of an event

The block party season for this year runs from June 1 through Oct. 31. For more information on hosting a successful block party or to apply, individuals can visit AuroraGov.org/BlockParty. 

The city is also offering a new neighborhood movie kit program this summer.  

According to the release, groups registered with the city’s Neighborhood Registration Referral Program are invited to borrow a city-supplied movie kit to host a movie night. 

Two movie kits are available to serve the community at this time and each kit includes a movie screen, projector, Blu-Ray/DVD player, sound system and microphone, and all relevant extension cords and cables. Movies are not included.

The Movie Kit Program is available for check out Thursday through Sunday year-round.  

To learn more and apply to reserve the kit starting June 1, individulas can visit AuroraGov.org/MovieKit or contact Maria Saldana at msaldana@auroragov.org or 303.739.7923.
