Streets Mailbox Placement


It is important that roadside mailboxes be installed in a manner consistent with USPS requirements for effective mail delivery and to prevent incidental damage by Street Department operations. Please utilize the link below to review current mailbox placement guidelines when installing your mailbox.


Please note:

Any object protruding into the necessary six (6) – eight (8) inch lateral clearance zone is subject to damage by the snow plowing operation at the expense of the object’s owner. The city will only consider making repairs to private mailboxes when an incident occurs where a mailbox is backed into by a city vehicle, the snow plow jumps the curb or there was obvious operator error involved.  The Street Superintendent will investigate the cause of any reported instances. 

This notice was developed for merely informational purposes only, the City of Nashua does not accept or acknowledge any responsibility or liability for the placement, location or maintenance of mailboxes on City right-of-way.
