Keene is committed to sustainability, resilience and innovation. A long standing commitment to ownership and responsibility for our future are what draw people and businesses to our resourceful community and what distinguishes Keene among communities nationwide. There are numerous development investments presently underway in Keene including a new rural senior living facility, the expansion of the public library, the redevelopment of large historic buildings in the downtown, multiple manufacturing expansion projects, retail and small business development projects as well as the construction of new, large-scale residential buildings. These significant, long-term initiatives representing a broad diversity of business and industry highlight the health and appeal of this New England community. Keene does not rely on one business sector for jobs and economic growth, a fact that was recognized as contributing to a designation by Forbes Magazine in 2008 as the third-least economically vulnerable micropolitan town in America.
