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.  It 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, policies and provides recommendations to the City Council on matters which affect the economic climate of the community.
