Zoning Improvement Program Takes an Ugly Turn

It has come to my intention that the United States Postal Service plans to rip apart a normally happy and content zip code as of July 1.  Yes, it’s true, a new, unholy creation, the “95811,” will be created to take over some of the peaceable lands once inhabited by the loving peoples of the 95814.  Who is responsible for this, you ask?  I’m guessing that it’s evil developers, or chain stores or maybe even Michael Moore.  Also, I am not yet sure, where the boundary lines are for this abortion of a postal code, but when I do find out, I’ll let you know so that you can steer well clear of it.  Until then, stay vigilant, dear reader.

  1. Did you read that with the proposed ZIP code split that the PERS office complex will be split up into two different codes and possibly cause all kinds of confusion for them? (By referencing PERS, I’m sure this ZIP code post will turn into all kinds of comments about the PERS buyout of the Capitol Mall high rise project.)

  2. A little creative googling came up with this map, posted by someone who received the new zip notice and who was told his new post office was on Broadway in Atwater! (I’m assuming they meant the one on 22nd and Broadway here in town).

  3. Umm… so my question when we received this notification was more along the lines of “And is the Postal Service going to pony up to pay the costs of changing the address on legal documents?” (e.g. deeds, estate plans, wills, etc.). My guess is that would be NOOOO. But hey, if the CALPers appeal goes through, maybe my townhouse on 9th & Q will get reclassified back to the cozy confines of the ‘814.

  4. Don’t forget about the expense to the local business owners of reprinting letterhead, business cards, forms, plus the cost of notifying customers and vendors of the new address.
