USPS Proposes Sites for Iowa City

IOWA CITY, IA (CBS2/FOX28) - The United States Postal Service is moving forward with plans to downsize the Iowa City Main Post Office.

Their first choice is Pepperwood Plaza on Highway 6E, east of K-Mart.
With 1925 Boyrum Street as the alternate, if an agreement is not reached for the Pepperwood location.

 Here's more information from the City of Iowa City:

"In early August, representatives from the United States Postal Service (USPS) held a public meeting to announce plans to downsize and move the Iowa City Main Post Office at 400 S. Clinton to a smaller, less expensive location. They have now announced their top two site selections: Pepperwood Plaza on Highway 6E, east of K-Mart, is the preferred site, while 1925 Boyrum Street has been chosen as the alternate in case an agreement is not able to be reached for the Pepperwood location. A public comment period has been launched by the City of Iowa City to allow members of the Iowa City area community to submit feedback on the site selection.

In a letter sent to Iowa City Mayor Matt Hayek dated October 17, the USPS's Real Estate Specialist Angela S. Kuhl wrote, "We believe either of these sites will provide the community with an upgraded, modern facility that offers a safe working environment for our employees and the level of service expected by our customers." A total of eight locations were considered.

The City of Iowa City has 30 days to respond to the USPS regarding the targeted locations, and has set up several systems for public comment. Feedback will be compiled and shared with the City Council, and it is anticipated that it will be discussed at the Council's November 12 meeting so that a timely response to the USPS can be issued.

Public comment will be accepted through 5 p.m. on Friday, November 1 by any of the following methods:
Visit www.icgov.org/postoffice to submit comments
E-mail comments to Council@iowa-city.org
Mail written comments to City Hall, Attn: City Clerk, 410 E. Washington Street, Iowa City, IA 52240
Drop off written comments to a special feedback box that will be located in the City Hall / Police Department lobby at 410 E. Washington Street.

In order for comments to be forwarded to the City Council, the sender must include his or her full name. Any comments received anonymously will not be shared. All comments will become a permanent public record, and will be archived by the City.
