Mobilize Western Maine is part of a statewide initiative of the seven economic districts in Maine, each of which are participating in development strategies based on their region’s indigenous assets and opportunities.

The Mobilize Maine process establishes five-year goals, mapping the region’s indigenous assets, and conducting an in-depth analysis of industry clusters and identifying short and long term actions that will more the rgeion closer to it's goals.

The key concepts in an asset-based strategy approach are to:

  • Establish long-term strategies for growth that will span successive state administrations, and be sustained by a broad, grass roots based critical mass of private, public and non-profit sector leaders and citizen volunteers facilitated under the guidance of Maine’s seven regional economic development districts (EDDs);
  • Initiate a ground up approach whereby citizens in each region will identify strengths and assets that can become the foundation of the new economy;
  • Identify regional priorities that will become the basis for private, public and philanthropic investment in each economic region;
  • Preserve and sustain Maine’s unique quality of place, while growing good paying jobs and businesses;
  • Focus on measurable outcomes, with firm timeframes, benchmarks for action, and assigned responsibility for getting things done.
