Meng Renews Efforts To Create Zip Code For Glendale

U.S. Rep. Grace Meng (D-Queens) this afternoon renewed her efforts to create a ZIP code for Glendale, Queens.
In a letter to the Chair and Ranking Member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, Meng urged that her bill to create a ZIP code for Glendale be included in any postal-related legislation that the panel may pass by the end of 2016 (when the current session of Congress ends). Meng’s bill (H.R. 657) would require the United States Postal Service to designate a single, unique ZIP code for the area that encompasses Glendale, New York. Presently, Glendale shares its 11385 ZIP code with the neighboring community of Ridgewood, Queens.
“Glendale deserves its own ZIP code and it’s time for the Postal Service to provide the community with one,” said Meng. “Creating a ZIP code for Glendale is critical to the neighborhood’s identity, efficient mail service in the community, and locating area addresses on GPS devices. I respectfully call on the Oversight and Government Reform Committee to act on my legislation.”
Meng introduced her bill in 2014 and again in 2015. The measure is pending before the Oversight and Government Reform Committee since the panel has jurisdiction over the Postal Service.
Meng’s letter can be viewed here.
