MANATEE COUNTY, Fla. – “I see mega-growth here. There’s more and more condos, more subdivisions,” said Jane, a lifelong Bradenton resident.
That’s what Jane has witnessed, and she feels there’s a lot more of the same by the year 2037. For her friend Pat, she’s seen the same growth in a part of Manatee County which tends to be a little quieter and a little more rural.
“I live way out east and it’s grown up. When we moved there it was a two-lane road, no lights or anything,” said Pat, a Bradenton resident, “and now it’s a four-lane road and the traffic is horrible.”
