Work in Butler: Neigborhood Partnership Program
PHLF’s work in Butler, PA is entering its second year after a busy first year that saw a number of physical improvements and important planning work completed. Sidewalks have been replaced and trees planted along Main Street and Jefferson Street, increasing safety and encouraging pedestrian traffic between the residential and commercial areas.
A study was completed to determine ways to better connect the Butler-Freeport Trail with the central business district. The result of community input, the recommendations are being put into action, including increasing signage in and around the central business district, a new Butler trail head, and identifying and marking a safe route from the trail head to the central business district.

PHLF’s work in Butler is made possible through the Neighborhood Partnership Program, an initiative of the PA Department of Community and Economic Development, and funded through the generosity of Armstrong and Huntington Bank.
