AURORA – Starting this month, the Aurora Housing Authority will hold its public board meetings at its new central offices at the mostly-vacant Jericho Circle site on the city’s West Side.
The monthly Housing Authority Board meeting will be held at the new AHA main office, 1449 Jericho Circle, Aurora, at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday. Meetings were previously held in the former AHA offices at 1630 Plum St., Aurora, next to the Centennial House public housing building.
Aurora Housing Authority Executive Director Keith Gregory said this week that the new meeting space is part of the agency’s move into the new main office building.
Gregory first confirmed the move in April. About 25 AHA employees will move to the new office.
The 6,000-square-foot Jericho building formerly served as offices for Jericho Circle-based employees and as a community center.
The AHA is also working to rename the Jericho Circle street.
Demolition of the housing complexes at the 13-acre Jericho Circle site on the city’s West Side began in October 2012. The last 93 families living at the site received special Section 8 vouchers to relocate.
