Some Milton Residents to Get New ZIP Code
The U.S. Postal Service recently sent a notice to 256 Milton residents indicating that the ZIP code for their mail delivery has been changed from 30004 to 30009. Residents affected are in the southern portion of ZIP code 30004, specifically in the areas around Mayfield Road and Bethany Road, up to the intersection at Providence Road.
According to USPS spokesperson Michael Miles, the change in ZIP code does not affect the Post Office location that residents use, but is simply an internal change in the physical mail sorting location. Miles emphasizes that the change should be transparent to citizens, beyond the simple change of ZIP code on the last mail line.
Miles also emphasizes that citizens should continue to use "Milton" as their city of residence on their mailing address.
The new ZIP code officially takes effect on July 1, 2008, but residents can begin using 30009 immediately. The USPS will continue to deliver mail improperly labeled as 30004 until July 1, 2009, one year from the effective date of the change.
Residents with any questions are encouraged to contact the Old Milton Parkway Post Office location, which can be reached directly at 770.442.3893.
