We’ve been listening to people in Berkeley and what we hear is that the sale of our post office is not what our community wants. The Postal Service has not heard us yet: We will get their attention. To do so we must all speak and act together.
Please tell us the best way to contact you quickly.
If email is not the best way to reach you, please go to our contact page and update your information. Let us know if you want text message updates or, better, if you want to be part of a notification phone tree.

We were hopeful that the Postal Service would agree to work with the City of Berkeley to keep full postal services at 2000 Allston Way, maintain USPS ownership of the building, and realize long-term financial advantages for the Postal Service.
Instead Monday afternoon the USPS issued a decision to proceed with the “relocation” and sale of our historic 99-year old Main Post Office.
Perhaps as a concession to our community USPS offers this language:
Vice President, Facilities
Facilities Implementation – Pacific Area
1300 Evans Ave. Ste. 200
San Francisco CA 94188-0200
The fifteen day time line for a review request is consistent with the time granted to other California communities. But shouldn’t we have been given thirty days to request a review? That’s what a reading of the federal regulation and the time line recently used for review requests on the Bronx General Post Office indicate.
