|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.
USPS customers (YOUR customers) want their mail delivered to their house.
In 2015 the USPS conducted a national survey in conjunction with the market research firm Gallup and Professor Michael Bradley of George Washington University's Department of Economics. The survey found that 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 homeowners. NAHB urges Congress to preserve mail delivery to the home.
