The United States Postal Service is working with city officials to find locations to expand deliveries and increase routes in Steamboat Springs, spokesperson James Boxrud said this week.

“This will encompass roughly 600 addresses,” Boxrud wrote in an email. “We must work with the city to ensure locations of new cluster box units meet safety guidelines and we are not violating any city code that we may not be aware of. Additionally, there are 10 homeowner associations that the postmaster is working with to install CBU’s expanding delivery even further.”

He said the expansion is coupled with the efforts that began last December when the Postal Service asked customers to fill out form 1093, which will help the post office determine customers that are eligible for a free P.O. Box — or what the post office refers to as group E boxes.



‘We continue to receive PS Form 1093 PO Box Application updates from the public on a daily basis,” Boxrud responded. “Although we haven’t had a huge response, we are pressing forward with evaluating each of the applications received and the associated physical addresses against our delivery maps. Many of the addresses have the potential to be served by one of the delivery routes in Steamboat Springs. We will be contacting each person who has submitted a 1093 update and provide them options. We also encourage those who haven’t filled out their 1093s and provided the appropriate documentation verifying the physical address to please do so.”
