In February 2018, the POA Board of Directors approved $390,182.03, plus 2.5 percent contingency, to replace the aging mailbox clusters throughout the community with more secure and aesthetically pleasing cluster box units (CBUs). The old mailboxes have exceeded their serviceable lifespan to the point where replacement parts are no longer available. The project is expected to be completed in July.
Due to the busy holiday season for USPS, the POA took a hiatus from mailbox installation in December. The Mailbox Replacement Project is a major undertaking and requires extensive coordination efforts with USPS, Postal Systems and the POA’s Operations department.
The Mailbox Replacement Project resumes Monday, Mar. 25, with the replacement of Group Seven mailboxes.
Mail will cease at Group Seven locations on Friday, Mar. 22. Residents will need to retrieve mail from their existing mailboxes before this date.

Mail for these locations will be held by USPS Sun City Post Office, 29700 Haun Rd., Menifee. Once the new mailboxes are installed, mail will resume and all “hold mail” will be delivered by the postal carrier to the new mailboxes. Normal mail delivery at these locations will resume on or before Friday, Mar. 29.
Starting Mar. 22, Group Seven may pick-up their new mailbox keys at the POA’s Operations office, 29081 Longhorn Dr., Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. New mailbox keys will only be provided to the homeowner, valid tenant, or property manager. The individual must provide proper identification and complete a Mailbox Key Release Agreement.
