Parking Commission

The objective of the Parking Commission is to regulate and control parking in Uptown Butte to assure a continual flow of vehicles through the area. The functions of the Parking Department include:

  • Providing adequate parking facilities for the area work force and retail trade traffic;
  • Providing patrol services and ticket issuance and process; and,
  • Providing for the acquisition and management of parking lots.

In addition, the Parking Department supports the greater Butte-Silver Bow area by responding to community complaints and conducting regular patrols of the streets.

The department is solely funded by revenues derived through the regulation of parking.

2-Hour Parking District

Butte-Silver Bow offers free parking options in our 2-hour parking district for patrons wishing to visit and shop in historic Uptown Butte. Because these spaces are limited we must encourage turnover to make finding a space easy and convenient. We therefore ask our Uptown workforce to find parking in one of our paid permit lots, or to park in one of our many free lots available outside of the 2-hour district. Please see the map linked below for more information on the district boundaries and free parking lots.
