MILFORD — In a letter sent to the members of the Milford Town Council on Wednesday, April 8, the United States Postal Service has stated its proposal to relocate the Milford Post Office from its current location at 126 S. Main St. It was noted in the letter that “the existing lease expired in early 2018, and the Postal Service has continued to look for an alternate retail location to serve the community within the town limits.”
It goes on to say that the proposed new facility will be a minimum 930 square feet, including .5 acres of land that would allow for the placement of a modular unit, and that it will maintain the same level of service currently employed at the existing location. The Postal Service intends to continue retail services at the current location until the proposed new facility is operational.
In an accompanying press release, it was noted that under normal circumstances the Postal Service would hold a public meeting explaining the process and needs and inviting public feedback following that meeting. However, because of the current pandemic emergency that limits public gathering it is inviting the public’s written comments until Friday, May 8. Comments can be mailed to: Michael Caison, Real Estate Specialist/Team Lead East, 475 L’Enfant Plaza, SW Room 6668;Washington, DC 20260-4201. Alternatively, comments can be mailed to [email protected]
After the expiration of the comment period, the Postal Service will consider the submitted comments received “that identify reasons why the Postal Service’s tentative decision and proposal is, or is not, the optimal solution,” and make a final decision whether to proceed with, modify or cancel the proposal.
