A team of local business leaders, including William McCord, AIA, has organized a R/UDAT (Regional / Urban Design Assistance Team) to develop a study of what the Harbor Bridge corridor could become once the bridge is relocated. The AIA National R/UDAT program has organized a nationally recognized team of urban planners to lead this effort.
