Aurora announces first new subdivision in almost 50 years, for senior citizens

The city of Aurora will break ground on a new subdivision for senior citizens Thursday afternoon — the first new subdivision in the western suburb in nearly half a century.

The 1449 Senior Estates subdivision will consist of 70 new ranch units, including 50 duplexes and 20 single-family residences with attached garages.

The subdivision will be limited to residents aged 62 or older with income eligibility of $15,000 to $45,000 a year, the city of Aurora said in a news release.
