UB Community Development Announces $1 Million in Community Facilities Lending Funding for Construction of Sanitation Department Building.

Fire TruckAtmore, AL – UB Community Development, LLC (UBCD), a community development partner of United Bank, announces $1 million in Community Facilities Lending funding for the construction of a new Sanitation Department building.

The City of Atmore employs twenty sanitation workers who provide sanitation services for more than 9,200 residents in Atmore, and execute the healthy removal of household garbage, limbs and yard waste. Additionally, sanitation workers work on beautification projects such as parks and recreation maintenance, drainage ditch debris removal and right of way lawn maintenance. The sanitation department building also serves as a recycling drop off site, and a location for the maintenance of city vehicles.

“The importance of having adequate sanitation facilities and services in a community cannot be overstated,” said Alex Jones, UBCD President. “Providing a healthy community environment is a necessity, keeping the community cleaner and greener. We are pleased to partner with the City of Atmore on their long awaited sanitation project, deploying our Community Facilities Lending program as a funding solution.”

The new facility is a 6,000-square-foot pre-engineered metal building with new amenities like state of the art ventilation and climate controlled work environment. The new facility will replace the more than 60-year-old facility and will include many new upgrades like a hydraulic lift base to help maintain city vehicles, office space and an employee break room.

The city has a strategic objective to elevate city revitalization efforts. The Sanitation Department is located in a residential area. This update will enhance the aesthetics of the neighborhood, elevating a sense of community pride.

“This project has been in the works for more than 20 years, ” said Atmore Mayor Jim Staff. “The Community Facilities Lending program made it affordable for us to move forward on this much needed update. We would like to extend special thanks to United Bank and the UBCD team, specifically Chris Walker. We are proud to offer our employees a modern place to work, modern equipment, heating and cooling service as well as new and improved safety features.”
