According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the City of Aurora is now the 56th largest city in the United States, with a population of 372,000, while Denver is ranked as the 19th largest city, at 732,000. Denver’s future growth will be limited to controversial redevelopments that squeeze more density into an already crowded city, while Aurora has a land mass slightly larger than Denver’s and about a third of it still undeveloped.
