Village Restaurants Hope Vision Plan Sees More Bradenton-Based Customers

As tourist season winds down, restaurants are relying more on their local clientèle. But chefs in the Village of the Arts don’t see enough Bradenton residents walk through their doors. They hope to figure out how to bring people from downtown to the artists’ colony when they meet Monday with the Bradenton Downtown Development Authority and Realize Bradenton for a “Plan to Act” meeting. … A team from University of South Florida School of Architecture led by Assistant Professor of Architecture and Urbanism Shannon Bassett has worked on the project, and Dr. David Brain, professor of sociology at New College of Florida, will address the next steps.
