The new location will include a one story building with modern amenities and a spacious parking lot.

Multiple buildings will see the end of their run as Heritage Bank makes space for their new location. After receiving their demolition permit Wednesday from the city, City Building Official Dennis Croxton says pre approved operations had begun new city square on Highway 5 to tear down two buildings. These buildings include the brick and white painted buildings across the street from O’Reilly’s. 

Once demolition work has concluded, this space will be the home of a brand new construction project for heritage bank. The new location will include a one story building with modern amenities and a spacious parking lot. The size of the building is approximately 3,892 square feet. Drainage in the area will also see work being done. 

Before knocking down the old properties, official clearance was made of existing asbestos in the building. The white building has already been taken down, with the brick building next door coming down within the next week. All businesses within have been moved elsewhere.

Croxton says there should be few road closures seen during this process. Though single lanes may be closed for service vehicles to work, he does not expect any major closures to affect local traffic. 

Clayton Rogers, Community President of Heritage Bank of Camdenton, says they are excited to be able to move from their current location to the new building once prepared. As long as weather works in their favor during the spring, he says they plan to start excavation of the footings in March. He anticipates the total operation should take around nine months and says the bank should be moved in by the end of the year.
