About ADC

Aurora made economic development a priority in 1964 with the creation of the Aurora Development Corporation (ADC).  Over the years this organization has been instrumental in attracting businesses like Love’s Truck Stop and Iams Pet Food, now owned my Mars.  The work of ADC has not been limited to attraction, as the group and independent community members have stepped up to invest in many of the businesses locating in and around Aurora.  Examples of this include: build to suit lease agreements on facilities for Syngenta and FedEx.  As recently as 2017, ADC helped to coordinate local investors to partner and build a premier destination long term care facility called Westfield Quality Care.  Today, Aurora Development Corporation has a fifteen member Board of Directors and a paid Executive Director to handle economic development.
