The Katahdin Region is a vibrant place to live, work, play, and retire. Our people are our greatest asset. Using the strengths, talents and heritage of our communities, we work together to constantly seek better ways to improve our quality of life.

We are committed and responsible stewards of the Region. We provide a welcoming, four-season gateway to an abundant and unique array of natural resources. Mt. Katahdin, Baxter State Park, and the forested regions of the Penobscot Watershed provide extraordinary beauty, economic opportunity, and context to our way of life.

Rich in culture, and with appreciation of our history, the region offers a multitude of museums, cultural events, festivals, performing arts facilities, sports, recreation and educational opportunities.

Education of community members is vital to our long-term success. We provide accessible, equal opportunities for community members to participate in lifelong learning. We are recognized for having an outstanding educational environment.

The faith community is strong and united. Religious diversity is celebrated and encouraged. Spiritual growth is fostered for all who choose to pursue it.

Our region boasts a growing, broad-based economy. We have innovative small businesses that sustainabily utilize our natural and intellectual resources. We pay special attention to businesses that add value to the materials from which they are produced. We are a leading force in maintaining a business-friendly atmosphere in the State of Maine.

We recognize tourism for the real value it brings to the region. The industry provides an array of amenities and services that provide enjoyable and enriching experiences for our visitors and residents.

Our citizens live in a safe and healthy environment. Wellness is achieved through an integrated health care system that provides seamless transitions for all levels of care. Health is supported at the individual and community levels. We value health and wellness and provide opportunities for healthy living.

Municipal and public services are provided in an effective and efficient manner. Good citizenship and participation are encouraged and welcomed. We take an active role in improving and influencing government policies at the local, state and national levels. Decisions are made cooperatively for the benefit of all.
