The U.S. Postal Service Processing and Distribution Center in Colorado Springs could consolidate with the Denver center.
The proposal comes as a floundering economy and the dominance of e-mail--as well as social media sites such as Facebook offering private messaging--have added to the USPS' woes. According to a spokesperson with the Postal Service, the decline in mail volume has caused an excess of employees and equipment. The proposal to consolidate the two Front Range centers is based on a September study to determine if it was redundant and less cost-efficient having both the Springs and Denver center.
A public meeting will be held on Dec. 16 at the Mitchell High School auditorium, located on the 1200 block of Potter Drive in Colorado Springs. The meeting will give the public an opportunity to weigh in on the proposal, as well as get further information on the reasons for the proposal and what to expect were the consolidation to take place.
