AURORA OUTLIER: Southlands blooming among an industry of fading flowers - Sentinel Colorado
Southlands and Aurora’s indoor mall, the Town Center at Aurora, located near the Intersection of East Alameda Avenue and Interstate 225.
Both are regularly hosting events to keep folks coming into stores. Southlands created a popular “sensory-friendly Santa” event inDecember tailored for children and adults on the autism spectrum normally bugged by bright lights and too many kids. The mall also hosts holiday parades, which Hougen said he enjoys.
For its part, the Town Center is converting its old Sears space into an indoor sport emporium and separately hosting high school wrestling events that have been well-attended.
The sales tax revenue generated at these malls is crucial for the city, Hougen said.
In the Town Center, sales taxes businesses paid to the city of Aurora in 2018 passed a $5.8 million benchmark for the first time in 15 years, making the mall eligible for a significant tax rebate.
Southlands is regularly contributing more in sales tax revenue, reaching $11,420,746 in 2018 after a multi-year increase.

Big wildflower bloom expected in Bay Area parks as spring sunshine arrives
Alameda Creek. They described the early part of the wildflower season as a scavenger hunt, but said they spotted ample amounts of poppies during their hike.“Get out of your car,” said Ruland. “You are going to see stuff. Right here, there are four kinds of flowers,” she said, pointing to the ground. “They are small, but still beautiful.”Many parks are capitalizing on the public’s interest this year — not only because of the amazing photographs of the “Super Bloom” that filled Facebook, Instagram and Twitter from Anza Borrego, Joshua Tree, Antelope Valley and other Southern California desert parks, but also because the drought has Northern Californians longing for the vibrant spring displays.Wildflowers boom in the Middle Ridge Open Space in Tiburon on March 16, 2017. (Alan Dep/Marin Independent Journal) “Last I heard, we were at 25 or 26 inches for rainfall this winter,” said Duke Heberling, supervising ranger at Pacheco State Park east of Gilroy. “Our annual average is about 8 inches. We’re still very green out here.”Pacheco State Park, which hosted a wildflower day Saturday, has been barren and dry for most months back to 2012 — an arid landscape surrounding much of San Luis Reservoir. But as the reservoir filled up this winter — from 10 percent last August to 100 percent today — the hills have bloomed.“We had a pretty good year last year, and this year seems to be better,” Heberling said. “There’s a huge variety. There’s like an 80-acre field of yellow mustard. It’s just amazing.”Cindy Roessler, a biologist with the Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District, said some of the best places in the Peninsula and South Bay for wildflowers in the coming weeks will be the Woods Trail at Sierra Azul Open Space Preserve near Los Gatos, Skyline Ridge Open Space Preserve along Skyline Boulevard and Edgewood County Park and Natural Preserve in the hills of Redwood City.John Henderson and his wife, Rose, with camera in tow, were out at Edgewood last week, looking for the elusive purple mouse ears, a distinctive lilac-colored plant found in serpentine soils of California and Oregon.“It’s not a large bloom yet,” he said. “They’re just starting. But it’s a good year to be hopeful.”img class="lazyautosizes lazyload" src="https://i2.wp.com/www.mercurynews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/sjm-wildflowers-0331-07.jpg?w=620&crop=0%2C0px%2C100%2C9999px" alt="Blue larkspurs bloom on Old Stage Road at Edgewood County Park and Natural Preserve in Redwood City, Calif., on Tuesday, March 28,...
