Mobilize Maine

The Mobilize Maine drive was announced in April by Gov. John Baldacci along with officials from FairPoint Communications, the Department of Economic and Community Development, the Quality of Place Council and the Maine State Chamber of Commerce.

Mobilize Maine provides regional data and growth prediction information to economic development professionals throughout the state. Officials say the initiative will point out unique assets and the potential of each region, and focus on the regions’ strengths and advantages for economic development.

It is being financed in part by FairPoint Communications. A grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture to the Northern Maine Development Commission will fund a portion of The County’s project.

FairPoint Communications has commissioned consultant ViTAL Economy to prepare an economic development model. The modeling tool organizes Maine into six regions and provides economic development officials with information on each area’s economic status. The tool also can forecast the impact of future economic and community development strategies in each region.

In Aroostook, the team is analyzing regional and state data, demographics and trends as they relate to the regional and state economy. The team will use the information in conjunction with that gained from using the modeling tool to set measurable goals.
