Located in the heart of the beautiful Finger Lakes region of New York, Downtown Auburn is built on a long history of vibrant business activity dating back to the turn of the 19th century.

While celebrating this rich history, Auburn is forging a progressive future by being recognized as one of Central New York State's leading communities in the renewable energy revolution. From utilizing geothermal heating and cooling systems (which were engineered and manufactured at Auburn's very own McQuay International) in Downtown government buildings such as Memorial City Hall and the Auburn Police Station, to harnessing hydro power generated from the Owasco River that runs through the heart of Downtown, Auburn's leaders constantly explore avenues that offer smart solutions, helping its businesses grow and its residents prosper.

As the seat of government for Cayuga County, Downtown Auburn is the hub of business activity. In the Downtown Business Improvement District alone, over 200 retail, financial, food, entertainment and professional businesses and dozens of not-for-profit organizations and government agencies provide a variety of specialty products and services to the area. Auburn's economic development programs, many historic sites, walkable neighborhoods, and attractive streetscapes make it the ideal place to locate a family-owned or national business. Downtown Auburn, in particular, offers a work-life balance that provides a great place to shop, start a business, or live.

The Downtown Auburn BID strives to make Downtown Auburn a vibrant and attractive city center that residents can be proud of and that visitors are drawn to.

Downtown Auburn's success depends upon people being attracted to it and served well. An environment that serves their needs and interests is essential for success and should be the goal of a healthy Downtown Auburn.

The Downtown Auburn BID also acts as the liaison, providing an office for communication between its members and the City of Auburn as well as Cayuga County or any other entity that may have direct impact on Downtown Auburn.
