NE 50th St Mailbox Cluster Box Unit Knocked Down

UPDATE April 8, 2021: The new cluster box unit (CBU) was installed on Thursday, April 8, 2021. All new keys have been distributed to the 15 households with boxes in this CBU. The postal service will come out soon to install new locks in the parcel boxes. Contact the HOA if you have any concerns.

UPDATE April 6, 2021: The new cluster box unit (CBU) is scheduled to be installed on Thursday morning, April 8, 2021. There will be a 1-2 day disruption in mail delivery while this process takes place. HOA Board Secretary, David Schott, will distribute 3 new keys to each household with a mailbox in this CBU on Thursday afternoon/evening.

UPDATE March 26, 2021: The new cluster box unit was delayed in shipping due to weather-related problems. It is coming from Manhattan, Kansas, and was in Commerce City, Colorado, as of March 26, 2021. Once it finally gets delivered to our installer in Issaquah, it will hopefully be installed within a week. Thank you for your patience.

UPDATE March 19, 2021: The new cluster box unit has shipped from the manufacturer. It is scheduled to be delivered on 3/24/2021 and will hopefully be installed within a week of arrival.

UPDATE March 2, 2021: The HOA accepted a bid on the replacement of the cluster box unit today. The motorist who hit the box has agreed to pay for the full cost of replacement. It will likely take 3 - 4 weeks before the new box is installed.

On Friday, February 26, 2021, a motorist who was traveling westbound/uphill on NE 50th St was temporarily blinded by the bright sunlight causing them to veer off the right side of the roadway and strike the mailbox cluster box unit that is located at about 16314 NE 50th Street.

Please email the HOA if you have any questions or concerns.
