Butte Business Improvement District (BID) Request for Proposals



The Butte Local Development Corporation, in partnership with the Uptown Master Plan Association, are seeking proposals for the creation of a Business Improvement District (BID) in Uptown Butte, Montana. The BID is expected to enhance the overall economic, social, and physical conditions in the district. The purpose of this Request for Proposal (RFP) is to solicit proposals from qualified firms, organizations or individuals that can provide comprehensive services to establish a BID.  



Uptown Butte is a historic district with a vibrant area that includes a mix of commercial, residential, and cultural amenities. However, as the area has grown, so too have its challenges. The district needs a coordinated effort to improve the physical and social environment, ensure that businesses are supported and thriving, and continue to attract visitors to the area. The community has received a Big Sky Trust Fund grant for $25,000, the URA has pledged $20,000 and the Uptown Butte Master Plan Association is contributing $5,000 for a total project budget of $50,000.00. The final contract will be between the RFP awardee, Big Sky Trust Fund and Headwaters Resource Conservation and Development, Inc.
