From Scott Alvord, City Council Member...
Update on Post Office on the west side.
Our postmaster lives on the western half of Roseville so several years ago, I reached out to him to find out what it would take to get a new post office out here. He was very helpful, but he had no power to decide himself without the request coming from a federal office. But he explained what was needed.
Because postal service is a federal department, I had to start working with staff from Tom McClintock office, specifically Kim Pruett. She's good to work with. I asked what it would take to help get a PO and some blue drop-off boxes in western Roseville and she did some additional research. She got back to me explaining the details, so I talked to city staff, and they worked with Kim to draft a letter for our mayor to sign, formally requesting the new post office. Mayor Krista Bernasconi was all in to help. She signed it, sent it, and then we all waited.
We finally got word back that while our growth probably justified one, it would be very difficult to get one. But we were now on their radar.
But they could get us the blue drop-off boxes.
The Roseville Postmaster has received permission from the city and property owners to place new mailboxes throughout western Roseville at the below addresses. They are also looking into placing more boxes as new developments throughout the city continue to expand.
I haven't checked the locations to verify that they were installed but they were or will be soon.
Luckily, we have a UPS Store coming to the Plaza at Blue Oaks (by the new Raley's O-N-E).
