Will the sidewalk improvements result in displaced mailboxes? Depending on where your current mailbox is located and depending on the final design of the project some mailboxes might need to be moved. For instance, if the street is narrowed then the mailboxes will need to moved to be within an allowable distance from curbside. The postal manager for this area attended the most recent Kaiser meeting and offered to work with the residents and to make himself available for any questions. He has reassured residents that all will run smoothly and mail will be delivered during and after the project.
