Credit union submits design plans to city

Friday, October 12, 2018

Fibre Federal Credit Union has asked the city to review its plans for a 3,250-square-foot branch next to Walmart.

In December, Fibre Federal purchased a 1.12-acre parcel on the corner of Highway 101 and Ensign Lane from Peaks View LLC for $878,169. Peaks View owns one other small parcel adjacent to Walmart and the Fibre Federal property, which was not part of the deal.

The financial institution has branches in Astoria and Seaside. Those branches are TLC Credit Unions, which is a division of Fibre Federal.

The new branch is directly across Ensign from Wauna Federal Credit Union in the North Coast Shopping Center.

Construction is expected to begin in the spring with an expected opening in late summer 2019, said Angie Leppert, senior vice president of marketing and human resources for Fibre Federal.

“Warrenton is a great community and there’s a lot of businesses there and a lot of growth,” Leppert said.

Kevin Cronin, Warrenton’s planning director, will review the company’s site plans to ensure they comply with the city’s design standards and to make sure there will be no problems with vehicle access, parking, stormwater drainage, grading or erosion control.

The public can review Fibre Federal’s plans in the city’s Community & Economic Development office at City Hall, 225 S. Main Ave., and can comment on the process in writing.
