Mail Box, Package, and Newspaper Handling:
Mail boxes are located at the kiosk at the entry gate. Boxes and keys are assigned by the Walland Post Office. (Note: The mail box key must be returned to the Post Office, or any Board member, upon sale of your home.) The kiosk has a motion detector light system that detects your presence when you approach your mailbox, after dark, and turns on lights. The light will stay on as long as you are moving around and then for a minute or two after you leave. The post office places packages that will fit in the larger boxes below the individual mail boxes. They place a key for the larger box in your mailbox. If the package is too large to fit in the box, the P.O. will leave a notice in our mailbox.
There is a package box at the kiosk that is used by FedEx and UPS. It is locked with a combination lock. Residents may obtain the combination from a Board member.
Residents who subscribe to various newspapers may have a newspaper box installed by the carrier at the kiosk.
Internal Saddle Ridge Communication:
The bulletin board located at the kiosk is there for community posting of upcoming events. Please check it often and post information that you wish to share with the community!
The large plastic black mailbox located above the newspaper stand to the far right of the mailboxes is for internal use between one Saddle Ridge resident and another. Label your package with recipient’s name, place the package in the box, raise the flag and advise your neighbor that the package is there for his or her pick up.
