I have lived in this town for almost my entire life and honestly, there isn't much I would like to see change. Overall the lifestyle in this town is very passive. The community is a very active and friendly type. One can see people always out and about with their day. The town is a small one in which almost everyone knows each other. Many of the people have had their homes here for generations. There isn't much I would change about this town, but if I had the opportunity I would add more locations so that this town could be enjoyable by newcomers and visitors.

Butler is a safe and friendly community. The people are friendly and always very helpful. Many different activities for children are offered at the library and Rec center and the summer camp program is excellent. There are many new local shops and eateries that have opened up recently and they are all very tasty. Butler is very centrally located among several other towns which allow for even more restaurant access and night life activities.
Butler is not the greatest town for non-athletic people, especially if you're not white. The public schools are notoriously bad, and the police department isn't the greatest thing either.
