Mission Statement:
The Andover Economic Development Commission’s mission is to focus on bringing new business into town for the purpose of increasing town revenue to reduce or maintain tax levels as well as retain current businesses. We need to create a business friendly environment. We would also like to preserve the history of Andover where we can.

We are:

  • Working to retain and assist existing businesses;
  • Working to attract new low-impact business development to Andover that will increase tax revenues, and provide desirable goods, services and employment opportunities.

Our goal is to develop the business community while preserving Andover’s quality of life.
