Over the past year, the POA has been 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 10 starts on Monday, July 15, and is anticipated to be completed by Friday, July 19.
Mail will be held by USPS Sun City Post Office located at 29700 Haun Rd. in Menifee.
Normal mail delivery will resume and all “hold mail” will be delivered by the postal carrier to the new mailboxes once the installation is completed.
The following locations are part of Group 10 and will be affected:
- 30441 Longhorn Dr.
- 30280 Longhorn Dr
- 30075 Longhorn Dr.
- 29859 Longhorn Dr.
- 29762 Big Range Rd.
- 29710 Buggywhip Ct.
- 29590 Big Range Rd.
- 29173 Big Range Rd.
- 31820 Railroad Canyon Rd.
Starting Monday, Group 10 may pick-up their new mailbox keys at the POA’s Operations office at 29081 Longhorn Dr. The office is only accessible from Vacation Drive 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 are being 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.
When completed, mailboxes at a total of 96 locations throughout the community will have been replaced.
