Community
Community

Our past, present and future instill a community spirit in Auburn that is timeless.

Proudly known as the “Home of the Classics” for our pioneering role in the early automotive industry, Auburn continues to make a name for ourselves.

Today, our ingenuity and innovation has helped us pioneer in new ways:

  • a community-owned fiber infrastructure to manage the distribution of electricity and communication services
  • a low tax base
  • a broad and varied employer base
  • and public-private collaboration on revitalization efforts

Progress. Every step of the way. Yesterday… today… and tomorrow as we continue to seek out opportunities to further the quality of life, business, education, community and economic development of our city.
