Alaska USA Federal Credit Union has acquired property in Homer for construction of a full-service credit union branch office. The facility also will include an Alaska USA Mortgage Company office.
The property is on the Sterling Highway at Greatland Street, next to the Homer Chamber of Commerce.
Excavation work is scheduled to begin this fall, with construction of the 6,250-square-foot building completed next summer.
"Alaska USA has been looking to open a branch and a mortgage lending office in Homer for several years. The parcel of land is perfectly located, and we were pleased when it became available," said Bill Eckhardt, Alaska USA president.
"The new offices will be very convenient for those living, working or traveling in the Homer area."
Alaska USA is a not-for-profit, member-owned financial cooperative. Alaska USA has 29 branches in Alaska, including two on the Kenai Peninsula.
