 “Wells Fargo is proud to support the Central Economic Development Corporation with funding to benefit the 14th Street Revitalization Project,” said Ana Rodriguez, the Wells Fargo Cortez store manager. “As America’s number one small business lender, Wells Fargo is committed to helping business owners succeed financially and improving the economic future of the communities we serve.”

MidTown Manatee is comprised of business owners promoting and planning the redevelopment of the 14th Street community. The CEDC focuses on development needs in Manatee and the surrounding areas.

“Manatee County government is committed to the growth of small local businesses in the urban core," said Manatee County Commissioner Betsy Benac, who represents District 7. "It is through partnerships like this between Manatee County, the CEDC and Wells Fargo that we will be able to provide resources for the success of businesses located here in MidTown Manatee.”
