ECORSE, Mich. - Jan. 29, 2019 - PRLog -- Downriver Community Federal Credit Union formally announced today its plans to build a new location in Southgate, Michigan, at 15261 Trenton Road, just south of Eureka Road.  This is a special day as the announcement comes on the same day that they celebrate the Credit Union's 77th Anniversary.

"Downriver Credit Union has a long history of serving our community and we are excited to show our continuing commitment to the Downriver region through this new initiative," says Robert La Palme, President/CEO.

In describing the project, La Palme states, "This will be a new construction project consisting of a 2-story building made up of almost 12,000 square feet of office space. In addition to retail and operations areas, the design plans include a community-use space which we believe will allow us to share and further develop our vision for a better Downriver community.  As our membership continues to grow, having a centrally-located office will allow us to serve our members more effectively with greater access to the financial services we provide."

A ground-breaking ceremony is being planned for Spring 2019, with current credit union members and local residents, along with representatives from the City of Southgate, Wayne County, Downriver Business Association, and Southern Wayne County Regional Chamber, being invited to share in this important day. It is estimated that the project will be completed by fall 2019.
