Currently the branch has out grown its office and needs to expand its size to accommodate the influx of members.

The historic home property will be primality turned into a larger packing lot to allow better traffic flow through the drive thru.

While the new branch is under construction, which should take between five to six months to complete, members will still be able to use North Country like normal. Luanne Carton the Director of Project and facilities says, "We hope to start next spring, early summer. It will probably month construction process, five to six months construction project to build a new building and get it ready for us to move in. We will gave a temporary space ready to go for the entire construction period".

Carton is also looking for photo of the South Street home back when it was in its prime. Demo is set to start in late spring, early June.
