City Urging United States Post Office to Keep the Post Office in Newhall
Residents Encouraged to Send Letter to Post Office Within 30 Days
After many years in Newhall, the United States Post Office recently moved to an emergency location in the Valencia Marketplace after losing their lease at a Newhall shopping center on Lyons Avenue.
In accordance with post office protocol, the United States Post Office conducted a market study of suitable locations in the area, with the intent of siting a permanent Post Office following a 30 day comment period. As of today, there are four sites under review, one of which is the current temporary site in the Valencia Marketplace.
“It is very important that the Post Office retain a Newhall location. Residents have contacted the City, requesting that we work with the post office on this matter. We have many residents who rely on having a local post office,” explains Mayor Marsha McLean.
The four sites include:
23120-23128 Lyons Avenue
23644 Lyons Avenue
23736 Lyons Avenue
25548 The Old Road Unit U1 (current emergency location in Valencia Marketplace)
Residents that would like to let the United States Post Office know that they want to retain a Newhall location may write a letter to:
1300 Evans Avenue Suite 200
San Francisco, CA 94188-8200
No emails will be accepted by the United States Post Office. The City has set up a website with information on the issue and where residents can sign up to receive notifications via email regarding new information about the Newhall Post Office at www.santa-clarita.com/usps.
