Development is not just bricks and mortar, it’s about quality of life and the ability to attract new residents and investors, Johnette Isham, executive director of Realize Bradenton, told the city’s Downtown Development Authority on Tuesday. “New buzz, more people, more money,” Isham said at the DDA’s long range planning meeting. Community development is about engaging civic leaders and residents in a shared vision, she added, before introducing David Brain, a New College of Florida professor who recently led a class in a study of Bradenton’s 14th Street Community Redevelopment Agency district. … Students from New College of Florida and the University of South Florida would provide research and input on ways to unify the 14th Street area.
