Postal Service Committed to Keeping Post Office

I am pleased to report that Postmaster Roane announced at tonight's community meeting that Temple Heights and Kalorama Post Offices will remain open. They have been taken off the study list. Over 3,000 surveys were returned by residents.

The 14th and T Street Post Office will continue to operate until the end of the lease (2/12). It was originally scheduled to close on Dec. 31. The Postmaster is committed to locating a new post office in the 14th and U neighborhood and is reviewing several proposals, including the Reeves Center.

I want to thank Councilmember Jim Graham who responded to our outcry and has worked with the Postmaster and the community to achieve this outcome.
