Uptown Butte is the heart and soul of Butte, Montana -- a mile high, a mile deep and where everyone is on the level, located in the traditional central business district of the nation's largest designated National Historic Landmark District. Born from underground copper mining and the source of fabulous mineral wealth, the city has been left with a legacy of historic architecture and remnants of epic copper mining at the western crossroads of two main Interstate highways on the West Slope of the Continental Divide. If we win, we would use the funds to develop and implement a clean and safe program to coordinate volunteers to remove graffiti, replace trash cans on streets, install new planters and hanging baskets for flowers in summer, and start a facade painting program and fund small repairs for historic structures in the Main Street area.
