Fort Kent remains a desirable place to live with diverse job opportunities and a gradually growing population.
The Town is a vital service center for the surrounding smaller communities and is a destination for persons seeking natural and cultural based travel experiences.
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.
