Banks and credit unions like to plant their headquarters flags on tall buildings and high-profile locations.

But Pioneer Federal Credit Union plans to upgrade and expand its base of operations at its current home on 3rd St. in Mountain Home.

An expansion project is slated to break ground this summer, with a new multi-level administrative building. It will help form a campus-like setting, with employee courtyard, on-site gym and other amenities. The project will also include a new community room which will be mad available for community orginizations in Mountain Home.

The existing administrative building and branch location will see upgrades starting in 2020.

PFCU was founded in Mountain Home in 1954, and now has more than 13 branches and 50,000 members. In the Boise valley, it has branch locations in Boise, Meridian, Nampa and Caldwell.
