Group Eight mailboxes to be replaced Monday

0

The POA is in the process of replacing 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. For installation, these locations are being split into 10 groups. Installation of Group Eight mailboxes will begin on Monday, Apr. 29, and is anticipated to be completed by Friday, May 3. The following locations are part of Group Eight will be affected:

  • 30461 Greenbriar Ct.
  • 22108 Vacation Dr. (& Scout)
  • 22611 Canyon Lake Dr. N
  • 22151 Vacation Dr.
  • 29712 Yellow Gold Dr.
  • 29532 Vacation Dr.
  • 22961 Mariner Dr.
  • 29483 Vacation Dr.
  • 22770 Castle Crag Dr.
  • 29291 Vacation Dr.
  • 29722 Redwood Dr.
  • 29231 Vacation Dr.
  • 22667 Cascade Dr.
  • 28921 Vacation Dr.
  • 29664 Vacation Dr.
  • 28870 Vacation Dr.

Mail delivery by USPS will cease at these locations today, Apr. 26. Mail will be held by USPS Sun City Post Office located at 29700 Haun Rd. in Menifee. Once the new CBUs 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, May 3.

Starting Apr. 29, Group Eight may pick-up their new mailbox keys at the POA’s Operations office at 29081 Longhorn Dr. The office is only accessible from Vacation Dr. adjacent to the north gate. Office hours are 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.

Residents are encouraged to sign up for the Informed Delivery service offered by USPS. This free service allows residents to digitally preview their mail as it arrives. For more information, visit informeddelivery.usps.com.

In February 2018, The POA Board of Directors approved $390,182.03, plus 2.5 percent contingency, for the Mailbox Replacement Project. The existing free-standing pedestal-style cluster mailbox units and parcel mailboxes will be replaced with front-loading CBUs that combine both mailboxes and parcel boxes.

The new CBUs are made of heavy-duty aluminum with stainless steel hardware, making them more secure than the existing mailboxes. Over the course of a planned timetable, a total of 96 locations will be done throughout the community. The entire project is anticipated to be complete by July 2019. For more information, contact the POA at 951-244-6841.
