Albany --  ATI's interim CEO outlines where he believes Albany Tomorrow is headed.  Greg McCormack says the most interesting part of his job so far has been working with elected officials, and figuring out the politics of a private/public venture.   But his top priority is making sure ATI continues to move ahead.     

It's a tough job, being stared down by your bosses and telling them where you believe the future of Albany is going, and how you're going to take it there.  "It was fun talking about ATI and giving my standpoint," McCormack says.

His standpoint is to take a look at all that's been accomplished with Albany Tomorrow. There's a new law enforcement center, Riverfront park, Hilton Garden Inn, Flint Riverquarium.   "A lot of the things that are on there have been done. Most of those however have been public projects."

And now, he says, it's time to get into the private sector, which is going to take a lot of work.  "Now we've got the private sector and a lot of the mixed use projects which generally are private funding and those are a little harder to pull off and maybe we need to reevaluate some of those and see if they're right ten years later," McCormack says.

See if the master plan of yesteryear will take us into the future. McCormack says he thinks it will, but some things will need to be modified.  "I think both city, county and ATI feel like we would like to revisit the master plan and see what still fits and what maybe doesn't fit."

To get just the right fit for Albany Tomorrow. Some ATI projects currently underway include the Ray Charles Plaza, the Chehaw Connector and Bridgehouse Renovation. Bidding and construction should begin soon.
