This morning, a small group of us gathered in front of the Davis Post Office with coffee and donuts to talk to community members and postal workers about a vision for an improved post office.
When we discovered that no forward steps had been made since the November 2017 “Town Hall” meeting about the post office, we wanted to see what a small group of neighbors could do.
Over those two hours, we gathered a wealth of ideas and experiences from our neighbors about the post office.
We encountered a rich mix of delight, frustration, anger, and confusion. The overall impression was negative, but patrons were overflowing with suggestions for improvements.
As a next step, we intend to share the requests that we gathered in a clearly worded letter to our elected officials at the community board, city, state, and federal level. Once the letter is sent, we will share it here, and continue to follow up and update you all via this website/social media.
If you have additional thoughts or insight about the post office (or anything else!), please drop us an email!
