Community groups work with U.S. Postal Service representatives to find alternative location for Chinatown-ID station

In early 2012, the U.S. Postal Service announced dramatic cutbacks that included the proposed closure of the Chinatown-International District Station and distribution center.  Responding to community concerns, representatives from the Chinatown-ID BIA, SCIDpda, the Mayor’s Office, Seattle Parks & Recreation, and Seattle’s Office of Economic Development have been working to track this issue and advocate for the U.S. Postal Service to relocate the post office to ensure that these essential services remain accessible to the neighborhood.   

While the station’s distribution functions are relocating at the end of this month, the current USPS lease will not expire until September 2013. The post office building is owned by the Seattle Parks Department, which is willing to extend the lease for six months until the City is ready to redevelop the property to expand Hing Hay Park.

Recently, USPS announced their intention to relocate the office in the neighborhood, which kicks off a 30-day public comment period. Community questions include: the criteria for site selection, what services will the new retail location have, and will the post office boxes need to move to Pioneer Square if there is space to accommodate them in the neighborhood?

Once this comment period passes, the USPS will begin searching for a new retail site in the Chinatown-International District.

Community members who would like to raise their concerns during this 30-day comment period should address them to the Seattle Postmaster and the Postmaster General’s Office in D.C. (end)

To contact the Seattle Postmaster, mail Trent J. McNeal at P.O. Box 3998 Seattle, WA 98124 or e-mail

To contact the Postmaster General, mail Patrick R. Donahoe at U.S. Postal Service 475 L’Enfant Plaza, S.W. Washington, D.C. 20260.
