The Camp Meeker Post Office has been a critical community meeting point and symbol of our community’s identity since 1900.
On March 15, 2013 the Camp Meeker Board was contacted by postal staff from Occidental and informed that the Postal Service wants to install a 4’ x 16’ slab at the trailer site, install post boxes similar to apartment type boxes and close the trailer completely. The postal service has deemed the trailer “unsafe.” The District was informed that stamp purchase and other postal related services required by residents and local businesses will be probably be handled at the Occidental post office. It is thought that most of the outdoor boxes will be too small for parcels and, given that there is no residential delivery in Camp, special services requiring signatures will also require Occidental pickup. It was stated that re-installation of a temporary trailer or permanent facility at the Camp Meeker site could be dependent upon the level of protest from the community.
The District is researching exactly what the Postal Service intends for our community. The Board does feel it imperative that the Camp Meeker community–especially postal box holders contact our Congressional representative immediately as well as other individuals who may be able to assist Camp Meeker in retaining our post office and community identity. We suggest that telephone contact for your protest is most effective and ask that you do so quickly as the Postal Service advises that the closure is immediate.
