Another project the Butte-based Building Active Communities Initiative group is spearheading is the installation of “wayfinding” signs.
The signs point walkers and bikers to various attractions around Butte, such as the Butte-Silver Bow Public Library and the Berkeley Pit, and give estimated walking and biking times. So far, organizers Todd Hoar and Cassie Wick have acquired about 40 so-called wayfinding signs and have installed about 25 Uptown.
The idea is to get people walking, Hoar said, but also to get them to slow down, enjoy themselves and draw their attention to Uptown businesses.
The group received a grant of $1,100 from Butte's economic development mill levy for the project.
