The Broadway Fillmore Station post office is once again on the closing list by the United States Postal Service.
It is almost two years to the day that the office was saved from a previous closure attempt.
Tom Handley, who owns the building where the post office is located, emailed me about the meeting.
On Friday Nov 11 (Veteran’s Day), the Post Office hung notices on their door and interior wall announcing a public meeting to be held on November 29. This notice gave reasons for their decision to close this location (4 pages attached). They also sent out a survey to residents in the area on 11-10-11 (copy attached). As their landlord, I have not been contacted by the Post Office regarding this action.
More from Tom:
The community has been successful so far in keeping this Post Office branch open, but it’s biggest challenge is coming up. In order to save our post office, we need 200 people to attend this meeting. Other communities across the country have been successful in keeping their post offices open – but it takes the entire community, and we have to have strong attendance at this meeting. (We will serve light refreshments.)
Take the time and attend the meeting at the Matt Urban Center on 11/29 at 6:30. Losing the the post office would be a significant blow to the neighborhood.
