It is truly a pleasure to welcome you to the City of Biddeford! Over the past several years, our community has witnessed a resurgence of community pride and investment in what has become known as the “Biddesance”. We are emerging from years of simply defining ourselves as a mill town into a modern, vibrant community that is proud of both its past and its present, while excitedly anticipating its future. Our citizens are passionate about the changes we are making here, and the community energy that has been discovered is what makes Biddeford a special place to live, work, and play.
 
With our diverse new local restaurants, shops, and our engaging artistic community, we have something to offer everyone in our growing downtown. Our once-abandoned mills are thriving again, thanks to business owners and entrepreneurs who have found innovative ways to make the space their own.  Our growing partnership with the University of New England and its students is helping to bring a youthful vibrancy to the City (our median age is 35), and it is an honor to have Maine’s largest private university call Biddeford home. We are also fortunate to have such unique natural assets like our picturesque sandy beaches, the Saco River, and our diverse set of public parks available right at our fingertips.
 
Because we are so proud of the work we are doing here to make Biddeford better for our residents, we want to make sure information about all that we have to offer is easy for everyone to access. As part of this commitment to transparency, we have recently updated our website to ensure that we are providing the best service to our citizens that we possibly can. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us for assistance if you cannot find what you are looking for.
 
Whether you call Biddeford home or are just stopping in for a visit, we hope you thoroughly enjoy your time here.
 
Mayor Alan Casavant
