Neighborhood Credit Union leaders on Thursday broke ground on their first Denton County location in Highland Village at the northeast corner of FM 407 and Barnett Boulevard.
“Neighborhood Credit Union is excited to be in Highland Village,” said Chet Kimmell, president and CEO of Neighborhood Credit Union. “We already have members here and know we will feel right at home in this friendly and welcoming community.”
Local elected officials joined in the groundbreaking ceremony, including Denton County Commissioner Bobbie Mitchell, Highland Village Mayor Charlotte Wilcox and city council members Barbara Fleming and William Meek. Representatives from the offices of U.S. Rep. Michael Burgess, State Sen. Jane Nelson and State Rep. Tan Parker, as well senior staff members of the City of Highland Village and the Highland Village Business Association also participated.
“On behalf of all the citizens of Highland Village, we are glad to have you here,” said Mayor Wilcox. “We look forward to seeing you around the neighborhood.”
Neighborhood Credit Union Board Chairman Dwayne Boozer spoke of the credit union’s history as the oldest credit union in the region and the longstanding commitment to the “people helping people” philosophy since its founding. Most board members – who are elected by the credit union membership – also were present.
Kimmell noted that the new location will make it more convenient for current members and others who live, work or worship in Denton County to enjoy the benefits of Neighborhood Credit Union membership, including Prize Savings Accounts that reward members for saving their money, free Kasasa Cash Checking accounts that offer generous interest rates, affordable and Flexible Auto Loans and credit cards, and many other financial products and services.
Kimmell said the new location is slated to open in spring 2017.
