Auburn Training Site

Purpose: 

To evaluate community needs and capabilities, and provide assistance to Maine Army National Guard, Auburn Training Site (TS), State of Maine, City of Auburn, and adjacent communities in response to Auburn’s future growth needs. The City anticipates growth in the southeast corner along the Minot Road corridor in the area adjacent to the installation as well as on the western boundary. Increased residential growth along the installation's eastern boundary (Garfield Road) will have a negative impact on operational training utility of the facility. Concerns about noise, air quality, and light pollution, as well as traffic density along Garfield Road, affect neighboring communities which in the past have led to complaints. In turn, the installation has modified training procedures to accommodate community concerns. Any further modification to accommodate the community will greatly reduce the training utility of the installation.
