Mission Statement: The Auburn Business Development Corporation (ABDC), a public-private partnership, develops specific projects that provide quality jobs and expand the tax base of Auburn.

The Purpose: To promote social welfare and to relieve inhabitants of the City of Auburn from economic distress caused by unemployment; to improve the local employment situation for persons needing jobs by encouraging and fostering industrial and mercantile expansion within the City’s area by presently established employers and by new employers; and to foster, encourage and assist the physical settlement or resettlement of industrial manufacturing, agricultural and other business enterprises and recreational projects in the City of Auburn.

The Goal: To leverage existing resources to develop industrial infrastructure to expand the local tax base, and to promote job retention and creation by supporting the General Purpose Foreign-Trade Zone, the Auburn/Lewiston Municipal Airport and the Intermodal Facility.
