Village Post Office Shouldn't Be Closed
The U.S. Postal Service is currently proposing consolidation of the Pinehurst village station into the Pinehurst main office.
Kim Williams, the officer in charge in Pinehurst, has issued a postal customer questionnaire to all renters of the village post office boxes. Written answers to the questionnaire, as well as personal comments, are to be returned by April 25, to the Pinehurst main office, or sent to Operations Support, Room 210, 2901 Scott Futrell Drive, Charlotte, NC 28228-9909.
It is very disturbing to read that the Postal Service is trying again to close the Pinehurst village station. The village of Pinehurst is a designated National Historic location. The village post office station is an intrinsic occupant of this prestigious designation given by a U.S. government agency. The building and its intended function is a strong contributor to this program of National Historical Preservation. In addition, the loss of our village post office would be a setback for all of our present and future village businesses!
Finally, removing this post office would hurt the ambience and certainly be a blemish to the historical designation of our beautiful village.
