The Board has identified two over-riding issues related to our mailboxes.

  • They are not well lit. At night (which we have a lot of during the winter months), it is difficult to see the numbers on the individual boxes and on the keys and boxes for oversized packages.  The surrounding darkness is also somewhat vexing to some.
  • They are too far from some homes. Not only is this an inconvenience, it means that the USPS will not home-deliver some packages, as they have a delivery limit of 0.5 miles from the mail box.

We have discussed this with the USPS office in Ferndale and they have indicated that they are OK with having some of the mailboxes relocated (at our expense).  The Board is now considering options for relocation and better lighting (including solar powered lights).
