Merry Christmas, from Butte! 

It’s hard to believe we’re wrapping up another year here at the BLDC and what a year it has been.  We are very humbled to be able to serve such a caring and open community and be a leader in the bright future ahead.  In 2019 we saw a tremendous amount of investment in Butte, including new large employers locating in our community, the rapid growth of new businesses at our Connections Park, a successful fundraiser to position the airport to add a new flight to Denver. 

2019 has shown what Butte can accomplish when we work together and we couldn’t do these things without the support of our many partners and you, our valuable members.  And while 2019 was a great year, 2020 is looking to be even better.  We’ve got big plans thanks to our joint venture with Headwaters to bring more programming for our small businesses, host more events that support entrepreneurs and continued efforts to attract new businesses, and community members, to Butte.  Thank you for partnering with us and we wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
