Redwood Credit Union Coming to Lower Lake

Lower Lake, Calif. – Redwood Credit Union (RCU) broke ground at 16105 Main Street in Lower Lake (at the corner of Highway 53 and Highway 29) on Friday, September 28th to mark the beginning of site preparation and construction of their new Lake County branch.

Brett Martinez, RCU’s President and CEO, attended the groundbreaking, along with several other members of the credit union’s leadership team, and representatives from Western Builders, the contractors that will oversee the project.

“We’re excited to add a branch to serve residents, businesses, and visitors in Lake County,” said Brett Martinez, RCU President and CEO. “We look forward to bringing exceptional service and convenience to our many members already in Lake County, as well as to the greater community.”
