La Jolla’s post office task force seeks donations, input this Saturday

The La Jolla Historical Society’s Save Our La Jolla Post Office Task Force needs to raise $1,200 to cover an application fee required by the City of San Diego to have the threatened Wall Street post office added to San Diego’s Register of Designated Historical Resources. Task force members will be collecting donations from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 13, in front of the post office at 1140 Wall St. during the La Jolla Art & Wine Festival.

The designation will provide a layer of protection for the building and its WPA-era Belle Baranceanu mural. The United States Postal Service announced at the beginning of the year that it would be selling the 1935 building and relocating services to an alternate location.

The task force also will be conducting a survey of citizens’ use of and need for the Wall Street post office on Saturday. The data will be presented to Congressman Darrell Issa, chair of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
