More Colorado Springs Zip Codes

Some Colorado Springs residents are getting a new address.

The U.S. Postal Service is adding six new ZIP codes to the city's rapidly growing northeast side.

The new ZIP codes are effective on July first, but the Postal Service will continue to forward mail addressed to the original ZIP codes for a year.

Customers should receive notices about their new designations today.

The change affects more than ten-thousand customers, but much of the affected area is undeveloped.

The Postal Service is enacting the new codes now to get a jump on planned growth there.

Postal Service officials expect plenty of complaints from people attached to their old ZIP codes, but they say more changes will be needed in upcoming years in other parts of El Paso County.
