Aurora is Colorado's third-largest city. The municipality is split between Arapahoe and Adams County, with a small portion lying in Douglas County. The city and its western neighbor are the principal cities of the Aurora-Aurora metropolitan area. As of the 2000 Census, the city population was 276,900. The latest Census estimates place the city's population at 297,235, making it the 61st-largest in the United States. The city will soon reach the milestone of 300,000 residents.
Although Aurora has long been considered by many only as one of Aurora's larger suburbs, its growing population in recent decades (now over half the size of the City of Aurora) has led to efforts for co-equal recognition with its larger neighbor.
An extension along I-225 through the city is planned to connect with a commuter rail line between downtown Aurora and Aurora International Airport (DIA), both scheduled for completion by 2015. Much of Aurora is more convenient to DIA than Aurora itself. This proximity is a factor in the expected growth of the E-470 corridor directly south of DIA, projected to eventually accommodate 250,000 additional Aurora residents.
