City leaders are working on a $50,000 revitalization project in downtown Hamilton.
City leaders said they're working with a consulting team, business owners, and other community organizations on the new Downtown Master Plan.
They said they hope to extend streetlights and sidewalks further north along Highway 93 through town.
They're also hoping to attract new businesses to Hamilton to fill empty lease spots, after many businesses left, or were shut down during the recession.
Al Mitchell, a Victor City Councilman, said, "When you have tourists and people looking to relocate coming in and every third store front is up for lease, it's not good for the city in any respect."
Other options include adding flower beds, a new park, and even encouraging Bitterroot College to add a second location downtown.
The public is invited to attend a public meeting at Hamilton City Hall next Thursday at 6:30 p.m.
