The Roads - for PC page

For the past three years, the Butler Plan Commission has worked toward renewing the City of Butler Comprehensive Plan.  This is to invite your participation in a review of  the working version of Butler Comprehensive Plan website titled "The Roads to Butler's Future."
This site covers Butler’s history, government, infrastructure, and demographics.  It reviews Butler’s current conditions and offers possible policies and strategies regarding future growth and development.

This website is a starting point, not a finished product.  Although it is wide-ranging, there are certainly items that we have either missed or overlooked; this is where you come in.   Our different backgrounds and areas of expertise can be applied to this plan to make it truly comprehensive and useful.

Comments regarding the plan are solicited via an email comment format at the end of each section.  Please make any comments, corrections or suggestions regarding the contents of either the plan or the survey through this form.  

We appreciate your taking the time to review this website and in helping to put together a new roadmap for Butler’s future.
