MAILBOX AND POST

Mailbox and post must conform to the specifications indicated in the following drawings.

The mail box post shall be at least 8 inches square (7.5” finished size), treated for underground use and at least six feet long to provide adequate burial depth for strength and proper elevation of the mail box to meet the local Post Office requirements. The top shall be cut to duplicate the current shape of mail box posts (45 degree cut from the front and the back) and painted dark brown or gray with a solid stain, to match the house siding color. See the specifications listed below. All currently installed mail boxes and posts are “grandfathered” until the need for replacement and/or repair, at which time this item shall be made to meet these current requirements.
