Economic Development

Economic Development Committee

In 2016, the Town of Presque Isle established an Economic Development Committee (EDC). The EDC supports businesses and commercial/recreational initiatives that preserve the character of the Town and natural environment, while promoting and securing avenues that encourage business growth and development. The goal of the EDC is to attract opportunities and developments that increase resident property values, grow a sustainable year-round job market, and improve our quality of life. Initiatives may include:

  • special tax incentives to its businesses,
  • rural development and main street improvement grants,
  • recreational improvements,
  • and other programs that will foster a healthy, year-round local economy.
