Historic La Jolla Post Office
The U.S. Postal Service announced its plans early this year to sell the historic post office located on Wall Street in the heart of the Village and relocate its operations. Sherri has joined with community members and other elected officials to find a suitable alternative to the proposed sale.
The U.S. Postal Service has scheduled a community meeting, which is the first step it must take before selling the Wall Street facility. A strong turnout is critical in demonstrating the community’s opposition to shutting down the Wall Street post office.
The meeting details are as follows:
Where: Cuvier Club at 7776 Eads Avenue (at the corner of Silverado), La Jolla
When: Thursday, April 26 at 6 p.m.
Who: Diana Alvarado, vice president of Facilities for the U.S. Postal Service, and other representatives.
The Save Our La Jolla Post Office Committee continues to explore its options, including buying the building and leasing back the property to the U.S. Postal Service for a nominal fee or finding an adaptive reuse for the building that would benefit the entire community. The Committee is also pursuing a state and federal historic designation for the building.
