USPS Approves Relocation of Beverly Hills Post Office

The postal service plans to sell its North Maple Drive location to open a less expensive facility nearby. No date has been set for the move.

The U.S. Postal Service announced Tuesday that it has approved the relocation of the Beverly Hills Post Office to a yet-to-be-determined location as close to the current site as possible.

USPS plans to sell the building, located at 325 N. Maple Drive, once operations are relocated. There is no set date for the move. All P.O. Box numbers and ZIP codes will remain the same.

"The Beverly Hills Post Office relocation and building sale is part of a nationwide response by the postal service to generate revenue, reduce costs and operate more efficiently in the face of dramatic decreases in mail volume, congressional mandates and other economic factors that have caused net losses of over $25 billion in the past five years," according to a USPS statement.

USPS does not receive tax funds for its operations and facilities.

This decision to move the post office may be appealed within 15 days by writing: 
Vice President, Facilities
Pacific Facilities Service Office
1300 Evans Ave. Ste. 200
San Francisco, CA 94188-0200

It's ironic that they abandoned the main Post Office on Santa Monica Blvd (to the chagrin of many, many residents) to build the Palais du Postale just as the Internet came along to drastically lower the volume of mail. I wonder how this will affect delivery of things like Netflix and such. If it will take 4-5 days to turn around a movie that took 2-3 beforehand, they might see a drop in membership in 90210.

They should move into BH library building plenty of space to open a usps counter, with a public parking structure and near court house and town hall too, but sorting facility and mail truck parking would have to go someplace nearby.
