Community mailboxes for most residents of Fort St. John will be operating this fall

first_imgThe letter also confirms the location of their future mailbox. Losier says Canada Post will keep residents up to date on the plan as it progresses.Concerns were raised about those with mobility issues receiving their mail when Canada Post first announced their intentions to scrap door-to-door delivery, but now the company has started an accommodations program that will work with special cases and suit their needs.This can even include delivery once a week if mobility issues make it too hard to go to a community mailbox.Any concerns about the community mailboxes can be directed to Canada Post at 1-844-454-3009.Advertisement Door-to-door mail will be a thing of the past in Fort St. John by the end of this fall, Canada Post says. The community mailboxes will come to Dawson Creek in 2016.The company sent letters to residents this week informing them that their keys for the community mailbox will be available soon. They are delivered by default, but can be picked up if requested.Fort St. John already has quite a few community mailboxes, for over 1,500 addresses, according to Canada Post spokeswoman Anick Losier. Since the mid-80’s, Canada Post has been implementing the community mailboxes as a primary mode of delivery for new developments, so now it’s a matter of looking at the older suburban core.- Advertisement -Losier says they’ve been busy working on transferring Fort St. John to community mailboxes earlier this year.“We’ve been busy consulting with residents and the municipality, who’ve been really helpful in the process. The whole process started with an online survey that residents got to provide us with their concerns, some of their comments and criteria in terms of their neighbourhood.We had a 20 per cent response rate, which is really phenomenal – and we’ve used that as a tool to plan where the community mailboxes will be located.”Advertisementlast_img read more
