Santa Monica Post Office On Fifth Street May Be Relocated:

The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) is proposing the relocation of the Santa Monica Post Office, located at 1248 5th Street, to the Santa Monica Carrier Annex building, located at 1653 7th Street.

The Santa Monica Carrier Annex, located less than a mile from the Post Office, currently does not offer public retail service and Post Office Box delivery.

If the move is approved, there would be no impact on letter carrier delivery to the City’s residents and businesses, and no change to Post Office Box numbers or ZIP Codes.

Public input on this relocation is welcome. A public meeting will be held to explain the proposal and hear comments at 5 p.m. on Thursday, July 19, 2012, at the Ken Edwards Center, 1527 4th St. #106, in Santa Monica.

Written comments are also being accepted until Aug. 3, 2012. Please submit written comments to:

Plans call for no reduction in service to the residents and businesses of Santa Monica. There are currently three USPS retail facilities in Santa Monica and there will remain three if the relocation is approved and implemented.

The other USPS retail facilities are Ocean Park Station at 2720 Neilson Way, and Will Rogers Station at 1217 Wilshire Blvd.

The reason behind the proposal is the realignment of USPS infrastructure to a 20 percent drop in total mail volume over the past three years, brought about by the diversion to electronic communication and business transactions.

USPS does not receive tax dollars for its operations or facilities, but covers costs solely through the revenue received from the sale of its products and services.

The Postal Service is in a very serious financial situation and is facing insolvency. Every opportunity to reduce expenses and generate revenue is being considered in order to maintain universal service to our customers. If this relocation is approved, USPS anticipates selling the current Santa Monica Post Office building.
