Our three office locations are undergoing renovations to improve safety and accessibility for our members.
Although all three offices are getting renovated, the degree of renovation varies based on the age of the building or how long since its last update.
The Waynesboro office will receive safety improvements in the lobby area. This is a minor project and should only take a few weeks. The office will remain open to serve our members during the renovation.
The Petal office needs more extensive remodeling and will require the member service representatives to temporarily move to another location to serve members. Those details are being worked out now, so we will provide more information for you in the coming months.
The Petal lobby area is receiving a significant redesign to improve safety and functionality for our member service representatives. This office was built and began serving members in 2000.
The most extensive project will be at the Laurel office. The Laurel facility on Highway 184 was built in 1969 and 1970, and the lobby was remodeled in 1994 and 1995. Due to the age of the building and the changes to building codes, the Laurel office needs extensive remodeling to the lobby, auditorium, public restrooms and the outside curbs. These renovations will improve safety and security and make the building, restrooms and parking areas more accessible for individuals with disabilities.
The Laurel office will remain open. The member service representatives will temporarily relocate to the auditorium on the east side of the building while the lobby undergoes construction. After the lobby is completed, the auditorium and public restrooms will be remodeled.
Planning for this major project has been underway for more than a year and will hopefully be finished by spring of 2018. Thank you for patience and understanding as we undergo these renovations.
