Threatened Loss of Piedmont Station, U.S. Post Office, Oakland CA 94611
A developer has come forward with a plan to build condos for “empty nesters” on the site of our heavily used U.S. Post Office at 195 - 41st Street. The proposal requires Design Review and permits for condos from the city’s Zoning Department. No formal application has been submitted as of January 31, but both of those permissions will involve public notification and public comments, possibly in the next month. The post office’s lease runs until some time in 2018.
In the meantime, the Piedmont Avenue Neighborhood Improvement League (PANIL) is working to save the Post Office in our neighborhood, and needs everyone’s help. PANIL is working with Congresswoman Barbara Lee’s office, as well as with Oakland Councilmembers Dan Kalb and Rebecca Kaplan, and the mayors of Oakland and Piedmont.
