America's First Mile
Fort Kent creates a sense of vibrancy and prosperity for the community. Our quality of life is firmly based in a blend of access to recreation, scenic beauty, diverse housing opportunities, convenient access to services, personal safety, an environment of health and wellness, cultural experiences and resources and overall affordability of living. The rural farm area remain devoted primarily to agriculture, forest production and recreation with residences owned by families with a land or natural resource based heritage.
Fort Kent’s downtown business district is undergoing a major revitalization, including business façade improvements. The municipality has a tremendous amount of experience with local and federal incentive programs for business expansion and development. We pride ourselves on being business-friendly and focused on economic development.
