Group calls for revitalization on Colfax Ave. through millennials and artists

"AURORA, Colo. -- In our growing Colorado, the increasing cost of living pushes people to look at more affordable suburbs like Aurora. Noticing the growth, community organizations are calling for artists, millennials and revitalization on Colfax Avenue, "the longest street in America," which sometimes gets a bad rap.

Along the busy street, pawn shops dot almost every corner for several blocks.

"You’re not going to come down here and get mugged. It’s safe to be here. We have great theater," said director of the Colfax Aurora Community Organization, Bob Hagedorn.

Hagedorn believes, along with other groups, that now is the time to redevelop.

"We have a very large millennial age population," said Hagedorn.

According to census data: 40,000 millennials live within a two-mile radius of Dayton and Colfax Ave., and he said they don’t have many places to go.

"What we are missing is a nightclub, is entertainment," said Hagedorn."
