to Meet in Oakland on Sale of Historic Post Offices

The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) will be meeting in Oakland on March 11, 2014, to hear testimony on the sale of historic post offices and its effect on communities, historic buildings and historic districts. The ACHP is an independent federal agency that promotes preservation and sustainable use of our nation’s historic resources and its members are appointed by President Obama.

The Council is required to develop and submit a plan to Congress by April 17, 2014 to make sure that the U.S. Postal Service follows the law in handling its historic buildings. The ACHP invited groups working on historic preservation to make presentations from 1:45-4:30 PM at the Dellums Federal Building, 1301 Clay Street, Oakland. The meeting is OPEN to the public. The public can also submit their concerns in writing.

The ACHP invites written comments from interested organizations and the public regarding the USPS’s disposal of historic facilities for consideration as the ACHP prepares its report. Please provide any comments by April 1, 2014, by email to uspsreport@achp.gov or by fax: 202-606-5072. Comments can also be sent to the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation, 1100 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Suite 803, Washington, DC 20004, ATTN: USPS Report
