Public Input Sought on Marylhurst Post Office

Excerpt from an article in The West Linn Tidings, October 10, 2012.

The U.S. Postal Service is soliciting community input on evaluating the Marylhurst post office.

Surveys are now being sent to area customers, and a public meeting will soon be held in which local postal service management will share the results of the survey, answer questions and solicit input regarding the time of day the Marylhurst post office will be open. The meeting will be held at 1 p.m. Oct. 23 at Emmanuel Presbyterian Church at 19200 Willamette Drive in West Linn.

The review process is intended to help determine the best course of action for providing postal services to the Lake Oswego and West Linn communities. The process, known as the POST Plan, is being done for certain post offices throughout the nation.

The public meeting will be crucial in the final decision, according to Larry Loumena, POST Plan coordinator. The survey results and the meeting will be weighed in making the decision. The postal service will examine the responses and, unless the community has a strong preference — more than 60 percent — for conducting a discontinuance study for the Marylhurst post office and establishing other sources of services, the department intends to maintain the Marylhurst post office with six hours of window service each weekday.
