SRI Moves to Albright Center for the Arts

We are pleased to announce that Sunbury’s Revitalization Inc. (SRI) has relocated to its new location inside the Albright Center for the Arts located at 450 Chestnut St.

The Alright Center for the Arts, being an SRI owned building, provides a unique way of furthering our mission to promote economic development, spur neighborhood reinvestment, instill pride and foster a sense of community within the City of Sunbury and surrounding areas. The Albright Center is a building unlike any other in the city, and we hope to showcase and use it at its full potential. There are several uses for this building that we plan to explore over the coming months and announcements will be made as those decisions are made. In the meantime, it is still business as usual for SRI as we head into our busiest time of the year. Being located on the newly renovated Chestnut Street still keeps us downtown and able to engage in upcoming events like the Sandwich Stroll, River Festival, Brews on Lake Augusta Wine and Beer Fest and so much more. All the while still being able to give back to our community with programs like the Small Business Assistance Award the Downtown Façade Grant. If you have not had a chance to see this beautiful building in person we invite you to stop by, take a look, and learn how you can get involved!

If you come to visit, please use the entrance on Chestnut Street with the handicap accessible ramp. All other doors are locked. Once inside, take the elevator to the first floor. The office is directly to the left when you step off the elevator.[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section][et_pb_section fb_built=”1″ _builder_version=”3.19″][et_pb_row _builder_version=”3.19″][et_pb_column type=”4_4″ _builder_version=”3.19″ parallax=”off” parallax_method=”on”][et_pb_image src=”” _builder_version=”3.19″][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section]
