Mailbox Replacement Project

Cluster Box Units

Group 6 | October 22 - October 26

Mailbox replacements for Group 6 will begin on Monday, October 22 and are anticipated to be complete by Friday, October 26.  The following locations are part of Group 6 and will be affected. 

  • 30520 Golden Gate Drive    
  • 23137 Burning Tree Drive    
  • 23620 Blue Bird Drive    
  • 23240 Blue Bird Drive

  • 22901 Gray Fox Drive
  • 22700 Gray Fox Drive
  • 22917 Canyon Lake Drive South 
  • 30539 Calcutta Drive

Mail delivery by USPS will cease at these locations on Friday, October 19. Residents will need to retrieve mail from their existing mailboxes before this date.  Mail will be held by USPS Sun City Post Office located at 29700 Haun Road in Menifee (phone number 951.679.7886 or 951.679.7307). Once new CBUs are installed mail will resume and all “hold mail” will be delivered by the postal carrier to the new mailboxes. Normal mail delivery at these locations will resume on or before Friday, October 26.

Group 6 - Mailbox Keys Available Starting October 22

Starting October 22, residents with mailboxes in Group 6 may pick-up their new mailbox keys at the CLPOA’s Operations office located at 29081 Longhorn Drive in Canyon Lake during regular business hours (Monday through Friday from  7 a.m. to 4 p.m.).  Please note, access to this office is on Vacation Drive adjacent to the North Gate. 

New mailbox keys will only be provided to the homeowner, valid tenant, or property manager.  The individual must provide proper identification (e.g. CLPOA Card, State Issued ID, Military ID, or Passport) and complete a Mailbox Key Release Agreement.  Letters and forms will be mailed to addresses affected. 

Informed Delivery by USPS

The CLPOA strongly suggests that residents sign up for the Informed Delivery service offered by the USPS.  This free service allows you to digitally preview your mail as it arrives. Informed Delivery allows you to view greyscale images of the exterior, address side of letter-sized mailpieces and track packages in one convenient location – your own email inbox, every day.  To sign up, simply visit https://informeddelivery.usps.com.

Project Description

The mailbox clusters throughout the community are aged and have exceeded their serviceable lifespan to the point where replacement parts are no longer available. The Canyon Lake Property Owners Association's (CLPOA) Board of Directors approved replacing these aging mailbox clusters with more secure and aesthetically pleasing cluster box units (CBU).

Scope of Work

The CLPOA will be replacing mailboxes at 96 physical locations throughout the community. For installation, these locations are being split into 10 groups. The existing free-standing pedestal-style cluster mailbox units and parcel mailboxes will be replaced with front loading CBUs. The new CBUs are made of heavy duty aluminum with stainless steel hardware, making them more secure than the existing mailboxes. There will be three different CBU configurations with either 8, 12, or 16 mailboxes. The mailboxes will be replaced based on their condition, the worst being replaced first. The location of the mailboxes and individual box numbers will remain the same.

Project Benefits

The new mailboxes will not only help beautify the community, but they will also be more secure as they are made of heavy duty aluminum with stainless steel hardware.

Construction Timeline

The entire project is anticipated to be complete by April 2019.
