State of Maine Strategic Planning Packet
Strategic Planning Task Force
The Administration of Governor Janet Mills has started creating Maine’s first formal ten-year strategic economic development plan for the State of Maine. The initiative, which will be led by the Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD), in partnership with other government agencies, business leaders and private organizations, will focus on strategies to enhance economic growth, particularly in rural Maine, and address Maine’s workforce challenges. The strategic plan will be the first of its kind in more than two decades.
Vision Statement for the Strategic Plan: By 2030, Maine will be known as a national leader for its forward-looking work in creating a diverse and sustainable economy. We will empower innovators and entrepreneurs, attract young families and new businesses, and revitalize rural Maine so that every person will know unequivocally that living in Maine means not only an unmatched quality of life, but an unmatched opportunity for good-paying jobs in innovative industries across the entire state.
