Plan Early for Centralized Mail Delivery in New Developments
Centralized mail delivery provides delivery and collection services to a number of residences from a centrally located installation – whether in a single-family subdivision or multi-family structure. Business customers also receive delivery services from a convenient central location.
The U.S. Postal Service prefers centralized mail delivery in all new construction because it is the most efficient method of providing the best service, which helps keep the cost of mail service affordable. Consider this:
- On average, 1.4 million new U.S. delivery points are added annually
- the U.S. Postal Service delivers mail to more than 300 million people at 148 million locations every day
As centralized mail delivery equipment is larger and will require designated "common space", planning for mailbox installations should occur as early in a project as possible to avoid surprises later. City planning departments which include the U.S. Postal Service as part of their early planning processes, at the same time as other universal service providers, will help ensure developers start with a comprehensive and specific list of development requirements.
