“The closure of the Glenoaks postal facility will only hamper residents’
ability to access the mail and hurt local businesses.” –Rep. Adam Schiff
I don’t want to see this station close. It’s the closest Post Office to my home and I have a P.O. Box there. It’s been my station for 11 years. Yes, the parking is minimal, but it’s convenient and if you time it right, there is normally a short line.
I was in about a month ago and I asked if it was really going to shut its doors…the employee (one of three, maybe?) handed me a flyer with information on how we, as the public, can appeal.
Or try to, rather.
It sounds set in stone, but I’m still raising my fist saying.. “NO. NO. Don’t Close. If you do and I have to go to the downtown station to get to my PO box with my three kids, I may go crazy…who knows! NO. NO. Don’t Close. If you…..”
You get the picture.
I am NOT on either side of Adam Schiff, but in a recent article in the Crescenta Valley Weekly, he’s quoted as saying:
“Closing the Glenoaks Post Office would leave Burbank with only two full service Post Offices. While smaller post offices would still continue to operate in the City, those post offices would not offer City residents and businesses the same level of service as the Glenoaks Post Office and as a result residents and business owners would suffer a significant degradation in service. Small business owners and families who rely on the Post Office on a daily basis to help their firms grow, or to receive prescription medication, will likely have to travel far to conduct their business with USPS.”
I plan on filing an appeal, and if anyone of you feel the need to help keep this third office open, feel free to join me.
The other offices are very busy as it is. If this one (when this one) closes, their traffic will increase.
This final determination to close the Glenoaks Station may be appealed by any person served by that office to the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC). Appeals must be received by the PRC within 30 days of this notice (June 20) of final determination is posted. If an appeal is filed, copies of appeal documents prepared by the PRC or the parties to the appeal will be made available for public inspection of Glenoaks Station and the Burbank Post Office during normal business hours.
