The United States Postal Service unveils a new ZIP Code™ for Lee NH
June 11, 2007
LEE, NH – The United States Postal Service today announced a separate ZIP Code for the Town of Lee, New Hampshire. The unveiling of 03861, as Lee’s unique ZIP Code, follows efforts by Lee residents and officials, Senator Judd Gregg and the New Hampshire/Vermont District of the Postal Service to provide Lee with its own ZIP Code. Lee had shared a ZIP Code with the town of Durham. Mail for both towns is and will continue to be delivered by the Durham Post Office. The increased population of both towns, in addition to the University of New Hampshire student population was the impetus behind the Town of Lee’s pursuit of its own ZIP Code.
Senator Gregg stated, “Thanks to the strong and persistent efforts of Lee, I am pleased that the Postal Service has decided to award Lee its own ZIP Code resulting in less confusion of mail delivery and enhanced responsiveness during emergencies. This is certainly good news for the town.”
Lee Board of Selectmen, Frank Reinhold, Jr., Joseph Ford and W. James Griswold, stated, “Bearing in mind that Lee was incorporated in 1799, we now are recognized, finally, with our very own ZIP Code. We are most pleased with Senator Gregg and all those who worked on our behalf. Without them, this result wouldn’t have come to pass. We are absolutely delighted with the Postal Service’s approval of a ZIP Code for the Town of Lee.”
Jim Adams, U.S. Postal Service District Manager, Customer Service and Sales for NH/VT District, stated, “The approval of the Lee ZIP code was very much influenced by the constant efforts of the Town of Lee and Senator Gregg. The Town of Lee has met the operational criteria necessary for the Postal Service and I am pleased to be announcing that Lee residents are receiving their own unique mailing identity.”
