Certified Business-Friendly

Certified Business-Friendly

Pittsfield is 1 of 18 towns recognized by the State of Maine as business friendly.  The Certified Business Friendly Community Program recognizes and promotes those communities that show a true commitment to business development.

 

Welcome to the Heart of Pittsfield!

We are a group of inspired and enthusiastic individuals who came together with an idea to better our community. It is our vision to inspire others and to get everyone in the community involved to make our town a better place for all.

Our mission is to revitalize Pittsfield by serving as a key facilitator of local, regional and national relationships and resources to transform Pittsfield into a regional destination for commerce and culture.

The health and spirit of a town starts at its heart, in its downtown. When its downtown is strong and vibrant, this spreads out beyond the center and has a positive effect on other parts of town.

Together we can improve on businesses, curb side appeal, and community events to make our little town even more appealing!

What We Do

We believe that in order to achieve the goal of turning Pittsfield into a regional destination for commerce and culture, we have to focus on three main areas within the community.

Business Development

Business Development
We work with individuals or businesses looking to start a business in Pittsfield or to help existing businesses expand. We also look for business opportunities based on popular demand and current location vacancies.

Downtown Restoration

Downtown Restoration
Pittsfield was identified as one of Central Maine's 10 prettiest villages. We would like to improve on this by restoring the historical appeal and improving on the curb appeal throughout town to make Pittsfield even more picturesque.

Community Events

Community Events
To promote downtown Pittsfield and support local businesses, we realize that we have to give people a reason to come to Pittsfield, especially the downtown area. To accomplish this we plan on organizing events to help promote and build our community.
