Manor post office is again open for business.
"The Manor post office quietly reopened last week without any fanfare, quite unlike the dramatic vehicular accident that closed it last September when a driver accidentally ran into it.

....  Post Office District Manager Gus Ruiz explained the delay. 'We had to work with the landlord and our facilities people. While we were working through all this, we needed to make sure our customers were taken care of. Finally we got it fixed. It had to be right and we had a lot of documents that we had to review and others had to sign off on. There was a lot of red tape that we had to go through. It took longer than anticipated,' he said.

....  'We opened July 19 on a trial basis to see if the network was going to work after we took everything out of the mobile van. On the first day, we had a glitch, but now we are open. We want to apologize for the delay. It’s not our building. Counters had to be custom made and the construction all had to meet city code,' she said."  Read article.

Manor Drive, will be temporarily closed for repair due to a vehicle that went out of control on Monday, September 21, at 7:45 a.m., and hit the front of the office causing severe damages to the retail window unit. An emergency contingency action plan to relocate retail operations has been implemented for the safety of employees and customers." The Mercury News/Bay City News Service, 9/25/15, ".... Police Capt. Joe Spanheimer said the driver was a 58-year-old Millbrae woman who accidently drove forward through the plate glass windows into the lobby of the post office.  The post office was closed at the time and there were no injuries, Spanheimer said. The driver was not arrested."

Remember the building had severe structural damage. Being it was opened in about a year was pretty remarkable.

As we all know nothing happens fast in Pacifica.

It would have been finished much earlier except the building plans were sent US Mail.

What structural damage? Pleas describe. I saw nothing during the repair that looked structural.
Custom counters made of plastic laminate over pressed wood can be made by almost anyone in 4 weeks or less.
Are you claiming that Pacificas building department process for a refurbed store front takes a year?
God help us all if this is true.

Obviously you didn't look before the interior construction and remodeling was taking place. Do you know a car ran into the building?

Go down to City Hall and pull the permit and read it.

Please post here the details of the "structural damage".
Structural damage is defined as damage which makes the structure a danger to the public in that it may fall down and kill or injure someone.

You want to know, go into City Hall and read the permit.

I'm not doing your work for you.

I know it would take a little more effort on your part but the proper use and spelling of the word is "you're lazy".
