DC Postmaster Announces Reversal of Decision to Close Post Offices in Ward 1

Subsequent to our December issue lead news story reporting on the objections that had been raised about the prospect of closing neighborhood post offices (seePostal Service Plan to Close Certain Neighborhood Post Offices Reversed”), DC Postmaster Gerald Roane announced at a December 15th rescheduled Ward 1 public meeting that the decision had been reversed with respect to the Kalorama station on 18th Street and the and T Street station at 14th Street and Wallach Place.

In a message to constituents received on the 16th, Ward 1 Councilmember Jim Graham, who had co-hosted the meeting with Postmaster Roane, noted that 2,500 messages had been received by the Postmaster urging that these facilities not be eliminated and that the Kalorama station had now been removed from the list of facilities being considered for closure.

As for the T Street station, the lease for which is to expire at the end of February and the landlord will not renew because the building is to be razed and the property to be re-developed, Postmaster Roane has stated his commitment to find a new location in the U Street area and until such time as that should occur, discussions are underway with DC government for a possible temporary relocation to the Reeves Center at 14th and U Streets.
