The Iowa City City Council voted 7-0 on a resolution to encourage the U.S. Postal Service to consider alternative site selection criteria that would expand location options closer to downtown, in order to enhance public access.

On Oct. 17, the city received a letter from the Postal Service indicating that its preferred site for the Post Office was in the Pepperwood Shopping Plaza on Highway 6.

An alternative site of 1925 Boyrum Street was listed along with six other sites, which are no longer under consideration.

The city was allotted 30 days to receive public feedback after receiving the letter from the Postal Service. Most of the comments officials received were disappointed in the proposed location because of a lack of pedestrian access.
