Aurora Asks Question, We Have Answers

aurora signRecently, one of our tens of thousands of readers noticed a sign on the Aurora side of Stapleton after they accidentally made a wrong turn. They snapped the picture, quickly jumped back in their car, and headed back to Stapleton. The sign reads, “Why is this fence still here?” The sign was most likely written by a frustrated Aurora resident(s) wondering why a fence with barbed wire is separating the Aurora and Stapleton communities. The Stapletonion believes there may be several reasons why this fence is there, so we took a crack at answering this question. First of all, we should remind Aurorans that you shouldn’t; a) ask questions you know the answer to, and b) ask questions you don’t want to hear the answer to. However, the question was asked, so here are some possible reasons the fence is still there.

  • It is only temporary until funding comes through for the bigger wall.
  • Now that there are through-streets, we at least want to see you coming.
  • Only purpose is to remind you that you’re not one of us (Stapletonians).
  • We earned these two car washes. Use your own.
  • We just put that up for spring break when you knew we’d all be gone.
  • Our attempt to make sure no more white people sneak into Stapleton.
  • Stop being so sensitive; we don’t want you walking through the poisoned prairie dog fields.
  • Oh that? One of our seven crossfit programs uses that as a climbing wall.
  • It’s more decoration than anything else. We really thought you’d like it.
  • Hey, Aurora, don’t come to me with problems. Come to me with solutions.

    Clearly the fence is there to prevent Aurorians from trying to develop the eastbridge town center . Stop trying to rush things, a decade really isn’t that much time to wait.

    Clearly the fence is there to prevent Aurorians from finishing the park running along 26th Ave. Stop trying to rush things, a decade really isn’t that much time to wait.

    Very pleased with the new art on Iola @ 26th. By that I mean the two bullet holes in the stop sign.
