The Board of Trustees has approved the ARB’s recommendation for a locking mailbox option as specified in the following update. The changes resulted from some homeowners experiencing problems with mail tampering and theft. The complete revised standard including the appendix is available online. Web site: www.crosspointe.info
Mailboxes will be United States Postal Service (USPS) approved and gloss black. They can be either steel or plastic cans, size C1½, or a steel Oasis 360 Parcel Mailbox (locking). Only one post design is approved for use. See Appendix A-3. Mailbox post color will be as determined by the ARB. Check with the Management Office.
Mailboxes are available at local hardware stores. If not in stock, go to customer service or order online.
Replacement mailboxes and posts shall be placed in the same location.
For ease of identification by emergency personnel, house numbers of reflective white, black or brass no more than 3 inches in height may be placed on the mailbox or post.
Decorated mailboxes or permanent covers for mailboxes are prohibited.
Mailboxes must be well maintained, i.e., free of rust, dents, and or fading color. Plastic mailboxes must be replaced when they begin to fade.
Posts must be plumb, in good condition and stained when color fades.
