ANAHEIM : Council to Consider Relocating Post Office

As part of its campaign to renovate central Anaheim, the City Council today will consider a plan under which the U.S. Postal Service would close its aging post office on West Broadway and replace it with a new facility in the Koll Anaheim Center.

Under the proposal, the Anaheim Redevelopment Agency would acquire the current post office property at 311 W. Broadway and give the Postal Service a site at Clementine Street and Broadway.

The agency also would pay the costs of designing and building the new post office, projected at $1.2 million. Construction would begin in the spring.

Among other items on the council agenda are:


* An agreement with the Anaheim City School District for the city to use a $5,000 federal grant to provide an after-school recreation program at Paul Revere and Paul Lane elementary schools.

* A public hearing on a request by the owners of Mr. J’s to allow a public dance hall at the restaurant and cocktail lounge. The Planning Commission previously denied the request.

The council meets at 5 p.m. at City Hall, 200 S. Anaheim Blvd.
