Maintaining Your Mailbox

Please keep your mailbox and post in good repair to enhance our neighborhood.

In an effort to enhance the beauty of our community, and in accordance with HOA covenants, residents are required to maintain their posts in a good clean, attractive condition. The required paint color for the mailbox posts is Black Forest Green by Benjamin Moore. This is available anywhere that sells Benjamin Moore paints, including Blue Ridge Paint, 380 Greenbrier Avenue, Charlottesville and Fluvanna Ace Hardware, 114 Crofton Place in Palmyra. The alternate paint color Valspar-Nocturnal Green is available at Lowes.

IF YOUR ENTIRE POST OR MAILBOX is damaged beyond repair, replacement mailboxes (Extra Large Rural Mailbox in Satin Black, approximately $35) are available at most home improvement storesincluding Lowe’s. Replacement mail posts can be purchased from:

  • Main Street Mailboxes, Catharpin VA, (703) 753-5521. The cost of the purchase, delivery, and installation is approximately $200.

The Spring Creek Community Club does a Mail Post Beautification Service project annually. For a minimum donation of $20, a club volunteer will provide paint and refresh your post. Orders are solicited each fall. Watch your newsletter for details.
