Bellevue Post Office Consolidation

Both the Bellevue Way and Midlake post office branches will close and retail operations will move to a new facility in downtown Bellevue by mid-2013, according to an article in The Bellevue Reporter.

The U.S. Postal Service announced the changes this week as part of a national consolidation campaign to save the agency $2.1 billion each year.

The USPS is looking for a location for the new facility and is accepting public input. The site will require 10,000 square feet of retail space, 80 to 90 customer parking spaces, and 10 employee parking spaces.

The boundaries for the facility’s location are Northeast 12th Street to the north, Main Street to the south, 120th Avenue Northeast to the east, and 100th Avenue Northeast to the west. Readers, do you have any suggestions for the new location?
