Aurora Racetrack Proposal May Have Hit A Dead End

AURORA, Colo. (CBS4) - Aurora's plans to bring a motor sports complex to the city may have hit a dead end.

Mayor Steve Hogan is calling for a special city council meeting Thursday to discuss a ballot measure on the issue. If approved by voters, it would allow the city to give financial incentives to potential investors like NASCAR.

The mayor has not said why he wants to discuss the measure, but the deadline to remove it from the ballot is only a couple of weeks away.

The complex would be built at East 26th Avenue and Hudson Road, not far from E-470 and Interstate 70.

The last time the city tried to get approval for the project, voters rejected it.
