Who are we?
Established in February 2016, Electric City Downtown (ECD) is a 501c3 organization dedicated to the revitalization of Downtown and the Historic Square of Butler, Missouri. ECD follows the Main Street Four-Point Approach (Design, Economic Vitality, Organization and Promotions) for commercial and district revitalization. We are an affiliate grant recipient and are aspiring to be an accredited Main Street program through the National Trust main Street Center
Strong leadership supported by an enthusiastic base of volunteers is key to making an organization like ECD successful. There are many ways to get involved with ECD and it all starts with YOU. Input and unique perspective is invaluable to our organization.
Our committees, volunteers and partners focus on celebrating the history of who we were while looking forward to who we will be.
Our mission is to re-ignite businesses and other activities in Downtown Butler, the cultural and economic center of Bates County. We want to honor the history of the area by rehabilitating disused buildings and making the area a more interesting place to do business, dine, shop, work, live and find entertainment close to home.
