New business promotes strength, vitality of historic downtown Cambridge

Cribelli Physical Therapy Owner Brett Cribelli says economic-development support from Cambridge Economic Development and Twin Valley Public Power District (TVPPD) were key to the recent opening of Cribelli Physical Therapy in downtown Cambridge. 

“This opportunity for new business came about as a result of close work with the City of Cambridge and the Cambridge Economic Development Board,” Brett said. “Financial-assistance loans were secured through the Cambridge Economic Development Board and Twin Valley Public Power District Revolving Loan Fund, both of which were greatly appreciated. Their support and financing program was vital in the renovation of the John Building.”

Brett said he started a physical-therapy business because he and his employees want to be an integral part of maintaining Cambridge as a thriving community, in every way possible. “Our goal is to provide the people of Cambridge and surrounding communities with high quality, friendly, and affordable health care for many years to come,” he said. 

“We are also very happy to be located in the heart of downtown Cambridge,” he added, “where we can help in promoting strength and vitality of the historic downtown area. The City of Cambridge has many strong community leaders who are dedicated to the growth of our beautiful small town, and we are proud to be a part of the future of Cambridge.”

Brett’s dream – and Dream Team – became a reality when Cribelli Physical Therapy opened in the Downtown Center, or “The John Building”, on Jan. 29. But it came only after months of planning and coordination – and the assistance of some community-minded locals.

“The project began in the summer of 2017, with encouragement and inspiration from Mark McCurdy, and progressed through the fall, as several pieces fell into place and proper steps were taken,” Brett said. In the final approach, he said, Jason Houghtelling and Brent Christiansen were able to purchase the building, and Mike Smith began renovations, keeping everything local. 

“It was important to remain quiet about our plans right up until the end, until we were certain that everything would fall in place,” Brett said. “There seemed to be quite a stir within the community, and there were several speculations about the possibilities of what would be occupying the space. Through the cooperation of all parties involved, though, the burgeoning new business coming to fruition in downtown Cambridge was kept pretty much a mystery right up until opening day.”
