La Jolla Post Office & downtown San Diego Post Office

The historic 1935 La Jolla Post Office and the 1936 downtown San Diego Post Office on E Street are threatened with closure and sale by the U.S. Postal Service. The nationwide disposal process of historic buildings like these has gone on without regard for the National Historic Preservation Act, transparency or uniform guidelines. Public protests around the country, like the strong fight being waged by the Save Our La Jolla Post Office Task Force, have gained important allies in Washington, in Congress, and at two watchdog agencies. U.S. Representative Jose Serrano requested two reports from key players, the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation and the postal service's own Inspector General, on the handling of the sale or relocation of its historic buildings. The reports sharply criticized the flawed process and called for a halt to any more sales until the Postal Service follows preservation law and implements the recommendations of both agencies. That's good news. To lose either of these landmark buildings and integral murals and other artwork would be a senseless loss to our city.
