NORWICH – VISIONS Federal Credit Union will be opening its first branch in Chenango County this fall. Plans for the grand opening celebration of the new branch, located in the Lowe’s Plaza on Rte. 12 in Norwich, are scheduled for October. Work on the site began last week.
The credit union will open a unique 2,000 square foot full service branch that celebrates the history and heritage of the Chenango Canal. The branch will be a quaint one-story, wood framed structure, incorporating design elements reminiscent of the surrounding area. The interior will focus on warm earth tone colors and the use of natural materials reminiscent of the town’s earlier days when the Chenango Canal brought wealth to the area. Earth-toned tile floors and rustic wood beams set the ambiance for the branch.
