USPS identifies three Edmonds post office locations, including current site

The U.S. Postal Service has identified three properties that have been submitted for possible consideration as a location for the downtown Edmonds Post Office, including keeping the facility in its existing 2nd and Main location, which is being redeveloped.

USPS began taking suggestions for possible space last summer after the current building in which the downtown post office was located had been sold. In an Oct. 1 letter to Mayor Mike Cooper, USPS real estate contractor John Logan said that three properties suggested have been identified by the postal service’s site review committee as possible locations. They are:

– 4,600 square feet in Harbor Square, Bldg 5, 170 W. Dayton, Suite 101
– 4,500 Square feet in the new development on the existing Post Office site
– 42,000 square feet of land for possible redevelopment on 4th Avenue North between 3rd Avenue North and Daley Street

In addition, the postal service may be considering other sites than  those on the above list, Stephen Clifton, the city’s director of community services and economic development, said in an email to the Mayor.

Members of the community are invited to comment. Letters should be directed to the USPS Vice President, Facilities, Attention: John Logan and can be mailed to John Logan, 221 Eastwood Dr., Southlake, TX  76092 or emailed to

  1. Looked all the places and putting it in the new development at the existing Post Office looks the best. Merchants and people downtown like to walk to the Post Office. The Daley location is in a residential area and wouldn’t fit it the surroundings.

  2. I fully agree with Paul. The current site fits with the efforts of our governments promotion of sustainability. Citizens often combine their downtown errands with going to the post office. A move to either of the two new areas would make that much less likely and therefore drive up energy consumption.
