Say No to Cluster Mailboxes
Your member of Congress is needed! The United States Postal Service (USPS), facing dire financial straits, has instituted a de facto mandate requiring mail delivery to cluster mailbox units in new residential developments. This determination was made without affording the public and those affected by this decision the opportunity to voice their concerns.
In 2015, the USPS conducted a national survey that found among the different services provided by USPS, consumers and businesses place the highest value on maintaining delivery to the door and/or curb rather than delivery to cluster boxes or parcel lockers.
Congress will play a critical role in reforming the USPS. Comprehensive postal reform legislation will likely be introduced again this Congress. Any reform effort for USPS should not be paid for by home builders and home owners. NAHB urges Congress to preserve mail delivery to the home.
Ask your member of Congress to co-sponsor H. Res. 23 offered by Representatives Susan Davis (D-CA), Peter King (R-NY) and David Joyce (R-OH). H. Res. 23 is a sense of the House resolution that the USPS should preserve delivery of mail to the home or business. If you receive a message saying 'your member of Congress is not being targeted,' please know this means they have signed on as a co-sponsor.
