The LeRay Planning Board granted site plan approval for a Northern Federal Credit Union branch off Route 11 in front of the Walmart in Evans Mills.
Northern Federal will complete the purchase of 1.4 acres of property the 3,000-square-foot building will occupy, then start soliciting bids for construction from local contractors. According to a statement from the company, plans are to start construction in June and be ready for a grand opening in early 2014. It has partnered with Watertown-based GYMO Architecture, Engineering & Land Surveying to plan the location.
