Further to my last update, Canada Post (CP) is moving forward quickly with their plans to install CMBs in Oakville’s older areas.

As the placement of many CMBs are on narrow 100 year old streets, the proximity to residents’ windows may in some cases be 2 meters. Many other proposed CMB placements selected by CP are adjacent to homes with steep ditches or areas without sidewalks, curbs, or streetlights. According to CP, our residents’ survey feedback identified smaller mailbox locations as the preferred choice in our neighbourhoods; instead, many residents have been advised that four or five mail boxes are to be placed directly in front of or adjacent to their homes.

Your local Residents Associations and I are in the process of working with CP to suggest possible alternative locations for their consideration that make use of open town space in an effort to lessen the impact of CMBs.
