Maine’s natural resources, unsurpassed beauty, low unemployment rate and recent boost in economic growth make it an ideal place to live and work. Our safe, welcoming communities, excellent neighborhood schools, outstanding higher education institutions, and exceptional year-round recreational opportunities are just a few reasons why close to 1.4 million people call Maine home.
Businesses and communities are investing in a broad range of technology upgrades, facilitating greater use of telecommuting, telehealth and distance learning. These advances make it easier to live in rural areas, while working remotely, receiving healthcare services or continuing your education.
As they seek to maintain their historic charm, cities and towns are looking to the future, transforming their economic profile and investing in growing industries: tourism, agri/aquaculture, education, healthcare and technology. With community partnerships and collaborative development at the forefront of strategic planning, now is an exciting time to be in Maine.
