Auburn leaders partner with government and business leaders in a 10-county radius to support the continued economic development of Northeast Indiana. The collaboration between our close-knit communities means that new development or expansion in one county benefits the other counties as well. Together, we offer many advantages that make Northeast Indiana an attractive place to do business.
