Economic Development Committee


The Bath Economic Development Committee’s mission is to promote an economic climate which increases job opportunities and overall economic well-being while preserving Bath’s unique sense of place. The Committee will do this by ensuring that the City’s well-preserved architecture, walkability and waterfront environment continue to make Bath a good place in which to live, work and recreate. The Economic Development Committee develops plans, sets policy and provides recommendations to the City Council on matters that affect the economic climate of the community.
