City Council Discusses Moving Norfolk Post Office

NORFOLK - A proposal to move the Norfolk Post Office was discussed at last (Monday) night’s meeting of the Norfolk City Council.  Angela Kuhl, a real estate specialist with the U.S. Postal Service, outlined the proposal for the council.  Kuhl says the Postal Service currently pays about $113,000 a year in lease, tax reimbursement and utilities for the office on North 4th Street. They utilize about 20,000 square feet in the 32,000 square foot building. In the building the Postal Service owns at 1100 South Industrial Park Road, there is 38,000 feet of unused space that could be converted to a new post office.  Councilmen raised concerns about traffic safety at the proposed location, and that the move takes the post office even further away from the city’s growth, which is to the northwest.  Kuhl says her job is to communicate with communities about proposed changes like this. She urges citizens to write to her, and she will share their concerns with both postal authorities and Norfolk city officials.  Kuhl's address: Angela S. Kuhl, Real Estate Specialist, USPS Facilities Implementation, 7500 E. 53rd Place, Room 1108, Denver, CO 80266-9918.
