COLLEGE STATION, Texas (KBTX) -KBTX’s ongoing coverage of proposed changes to the Postal Service’s mail delivery in College Station has now garnered the attention of city leaders.
The Postal Service was expected to stop delivering to mailboxes in apartment complexes they now classify as student housing. The postal service did not verify which complexes are affected but sources told KBTX they include The Grove at Southwood, The Trails at Wolf Pen Creek, The Ridge, and the Arbors at Wolf Pen Creek and Tower Park Apartments. While students are residents in many of these complexes, so are seniors, families, and other community members.
Multiple property managers and residents have voiced their concerns surrounding the changes, asserting that they unfairly penalize their community based on their proximity to the Texas A&M University campus. As a result, College Station city leaders are actively seeking answers.
College Station City Councilwoman Elizabeth Cunha expressed her concerns during a recent council meeting.
