The Highland Chamber of Commerce announced today plans to move its offices to 1216 Main St. in Highland.
The announcement comes just one week after announcing the sale of their building at 907 Main St.
Frey Properties, a longtime chamber member, owns the property.
“We are so excited to work with Gayle Frey and his company as we renovate this space to fit the needs of the Chamber and the Highland Area Community Foundation,” said Nancie Zobrist, executive director of the Highland Chamber. “I was so excited when I first toured this space. The structure lends itself so seamlessly to hosting both the Chamber and the Foundation.”
The Chamber and the Foundation have been located across the hallway from each other for over a decade.
Zobrist said May 1 is the targeted date.
“This is a large building with decades worth of memories, paperwork, decorations, etc. We’ll be taking this opportunity to evaluate what we’ve accumulated in the past 24 years and determine what we need to move with us. We also want to give our community organizations time to come and claim their materials that have been stored here over the years.”
Organizations that may have items stored in the Chamber building at 907 Main St. can call the Chamber office at (618) 654-3721 to schedule a time to gather their items.
