GOALS & OBJECTIVES
Vibrant neighborhoods are the key to successful housing development and to the delivery of associated support services.
Economic diversity within neighborhoods helps to impede the cycle of poverty.
Housing needs should be addressed in the context of overall community and economic development.
Housing development in Butte should be undertaken in a manner that is sensitive to the city’s nationally significant architectural and cultural resources.
The development of housing should reflect sound urban planning practices, such as reducing sprawl, promoting walkability, and creating sustainable neighborhoods.
