FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) — The United States Postal Service (USPS) will hold a public meeting in late November in Fort Wayne as part of its plans to modernize its facilities as it works to achieve a goal of 95% on-time delivery nationwide.
The USPS is conducting a Mail Processing Facility Review of its main facility located at 1501 South Clinton. The review will determine whether some mail processing operations should be moved to Indianapolis.
Initial results of the review call for keeping the Fort Wayne processing facility open and investing in its modernization. That review also indicates efficiency could be improved if some of the operations were moved to Indianapolis.
UPSP officials will share the initial results of the review Wednesday, November 29, at 2 PM in the Allen County Public Library, Meeting Rm AB, in downtown Fort Wayne. People can also submit written comments at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/mpfr-fort-wayne-in through 12/14/2023. The public’s input will be considered prior to a final decision.
USPS says it will continue to work closely with its unions and management associations throughout the facility review process. This MPFR, currently in review at USPS Headquarters and its Regional Office, is subject to change. The Postal Service will continually monitor the impact of any changes that are implemented and will adjust plans as necessary and appropriate.
