SAVE OUR HISTORIC VERNON STREET POST OFFICE!!!
With the sale of our original Downtown U. S. Post Office building at 330 Vernon Street we will lose the last WPA (Works Progress Administration) building in Roseville from the Great Depression.Sign PetitionSign Petition
Unfortunately in July of this year our Roseville City Council unanimously approved bids for the 1936 building’s sale. The city acquired the building from USPS in 2010, and it continues to operate as our downtown Post Office. Their current 10-year lease expires in 2020.
This last WPA Great Depression era building in Roseville could be purchased by a developer who could raze the building, or change it significantly, as has been done over and over on historical Vernon Street (i. e. the original City Hall next door most recently, and the many other buildings razed to build the new City Hall and Town Square across the street).
We need to save our history! Regret only goes one way. Once a historic structure is gone, you can never get it back. Photographs and plaques can never replace the experience of being in a building that is an important historic landmark of your community.
I care about our city and saving this particular historic U. S. Post Office building, and I know many others do too!
