BARTOW ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COUNCIL

HISTORY AND FUNDING:
Start up funding of the BEDC began in 2015, when the City of Bartow and Bartow’s Community Redevelopment Agency each earmarked 45,000 for the organization, with the understanding that eventually, the non-profit organization will become self-sufficent with private sector funds. Membership is offered at several levels of investment – General members, Executive Council members,  and Highly Skilled Investors. The BEDC’s Board of Directors is made up of volunteer community leaders.
