About the project
The City of Bartow is interested in undertaking a Master Planning effort that is both Citywide, as well as targeted around several key focus areas. One of the key drivers for the project is the relationship and possibilities for downtown, the adjacent residential neighborhoods, connective corridors and the expanded suburban growth areas, with a desire for increased employment / job growth while enhancing overall community character.
