The impetus for this project was the multi-million-dollar investment in West Park Street by the Montana Department of Transportation (MDT). MDT has several curb-to-curb improvements as well as sidewalk repairs planned for the Corridor in 2016. Grant assistance from the New Mobility West Initiative brought land planning and economic development specialists together with a Butte team representing a variety of disciplines to evaluate this important community corridor.
Many of the conclusions drawn and laid out in this document are from extensive public engagement with Butte-Silver Bow stakeholders. In November 2015, the project team conducted 16 focus group and individual interviews, a public forum, and an online survey to gather broad community input on the desired character of the West Park Street Corridor. These findings were critical to the development of the Plan’s recommendations.
The heart of this document are the recommendations, designed to accomplish community goals of enhancing the character and economic development potential of the West Park Street Corridor. This document’s recommendations are specific to West Park Street but a similar process could be replicated along other major corridors in Butte. The intent of this process is to pair planned street investments with community engagement to determine the desired character.
