Still, no matter how many $1-million homes spring up in the southeast corner of Aurora, no matter how far the sea of smaller luxury homes stretches beyond those original borders, and no matter the number of high-end retailers drawn by those eastern Aurora rooftops, the East Colfax corridor still matters. It’s still Aurora’s original downtown. It’s still one of the few truly historic — and older — neighborhoods in town.

    What's eating Aurora over East Colfax - it's not trendy cafes - Sentinel Colorado
    AURORA | Every chef needs a kitchen. There aren't a lot of kitchens, however, in northwest Aurora's art district, and so there also aren't many chefs or eateries in the neighborhood either. And every arts district needs a foodie outlet, or two. Or more. And so has long gone a persistent East Colfax problem.

Denver will conduct a full three minutes test of the outdoor warning siren system for a full 3 minutes this Wednesday, May 9, at 11:00 a.m. This test is conducted annually in advance of tornado season. As a reminder, if you hear outdoor warning sirens at any other time, seek shelter immediately. The best places to shelter during a tornado are indoors, in a basement or interior room, and away from windows. If you are indoors and cannot hear the sirens, that is OK! Sirens are an outdoor warning system designed to alert those who are outside that they need to seek shelter.
