The U.S. Postal Service will host its first and only community outreach meeting on April 26 to seek comment from community members about the potential relocation of services and possible sale of the La Jolla Post Office on Wall Street. The meeting will take place at the Cuvier Club at 7776 Eads Ave., La Jolla at 6:30 p.m.
The U.S. Postal Service announced in January plans to relocate postal services in 92037. It identified the La Jolla Post Office as “a value asset whose potential sale would generate much needed capital for the Postal Service.” It said the Post Office would be relocated to a smaller location within 1 mile of the current site. It said, P.O. box numbers will remain the same and hours of operation will remain the same, only the location will differ.
Within days of this announcement, community members formed the Save Our La Jolla Post Office Task Force.
The meeting on April 26 is a way for local community members and business owners to voice their opinions on the future of the La Jolla Post Office, a 77-year-old building at the corner of Wall Street and Ivanhoe Avenue, to the U.S. Postal Service.
The Save Our La Jolla Post Office Task Force urges La Jollans interested in retaining counter services at the La Jolla Post Office's current location to attend the meeting in numbers. The organization, lead by Leslie Davis, asks supporters to come out to the community event at 6 p.m.
"The community needs to arrive at 6 to get organized with speaker slips, seated, parked, etc.," said Davis in an email to Patch.
