Nelson residents will be moved to community mail boxes next year.
Canada Post is letting the 3, 600 door-to-door customers know that the conversion process is starting.
Over the next six to nine months residents will be surveyed for the safest and most suitable locations for the community mail boxes in each neighborhood – the clusters of about 3 boxes can handle about 40 addresses in total.
Canada Post Spokesperson Jon Hamilton says they are open to changes even once residents and the municipality give their input.
Canada Post continues to move to community mail boxes to save money as letter volume drops… it says no regular full time or part time employees will lose their job as a result of the initiative.
