Notice of Public Meeting and Comment Period for Proposed Relocation of Beverly Hills Post Office
The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) is proposing the relocation of the Beverly Hills Post Office, located at 325 N. Maple Dr., to a yet-to-be-determined location within the same ZIP Code.
If the move is approved, there would be no impact on letter carrier delivery to the City’s residents and businesses, and no change to Post Office Box numbers or ZIP Codes.
Public input on this proposed relocation is welcome. A public meeting will be held to explain the proposal and hear comments at 5 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 27, 2012, at Salter Auditorium, Beverly Hills High School, 241 Moreno Dr., Beverly Hills.
Written comments are also being accepted until Oct 12, 2012. Please submit written comments to:

The reason behind this proposal is the realignment of USPS infrastructure to a 20-percent drop in total mail volume over the past three years, brought about by the diversion to electronic communication and business transactions.
USPS does not receive tax dollars for its operations or facilities, but covers costs solely through the revenue received from the sale of its products and services.
The Postal Service is in a very serious financial situation and is facing insolvency. Every opportunity to reduce expenses and generate revenue is being considered in order to maintain universal service to our customers. If this relocation is approved, USPS anticipates selling the Beverly Hills Post Office building.
