Locking Mailboxes

Mail theft within MCCA has risen sharply since 2000!

The two mailboxes approved for use in MCCA are the locking mailbox and the standard mailbox shown at right.

The standard mailboxes are provided by MCCA at no cost to the residents in those divisions still using individual mailboxes. The locking mailbox is available for purchase through MCCA by any MCCA resident desiring one. It’s U.S. Postal Service approved, is constructed of heavy-duty metal, and has a larger, locked incoming mail compartment. The owner is given the only two keys to the locking mailbox when it’s installed (USPS will not have a key). Outgoing mail can be placed in an unlocked portion of the mailbox, but it’s not recommended. Owners are encouraged to drop off outgoing mail at the post office.

With mail theft continuing sporadically, both MCCA and the Mill Creek Police recommend the installation and use of the locking mailbox. If you are interested in purchasing a locking mailbox, you may do so from MCCA for $185. MCCA Maintenance will install the box for you, and hand you the keys. Note that MCCA provides the locking mailboxes at cost, and the installation is free.

If you are interested in purchasing a locking mailbox, please stop by the MCCA Office, or you may mail the payment for $185 to MCCA. If paying by mail, please be sure to include all required information (name, address, division and phone). The check should be made out to “MCCA.”

MCCA maintenance will install the mailbox at no charge as described above.

Using Your Locking Mailbox

If you move you may take your locking mailbox with you. Please notify the MCCA Office and allow time for MCCA maintenance to remove the locking mailbox for you. A standard mailbox will be installed in its place.

The outgoing mail portion of your mailbox is not secure, and its use is not recommended. Instead, you should drop off your outgoing mail at the post office.

As mentioned above, you will be provided with the only two keys to your mailbox. After it’s installed even the USPS will not have access to the locked incoming mail portion of the box. For your protection, most locksmiths cannot duplicate the keys to your locking mailbox. If you find that you need more than two keys, you can have spares made at the following locations in the local area:

Announcements

Bear Sightings

We have had a number of bear sightings in the MCCA this summer. The Fish and Wildlife Department wants you to know that this is not uncommon for our area, bears do wander through from time to time. If you happen to see a bear while out and about DO NOT RUN. Bears look slow and lumbering as they walk along, but they can move very fast and will definitely catch you. Instead, make yourself as big and loud as possible by raising your arms and yelling. 99% of the time, this will scare off the bear. If making noise and waving your arms does not work, act aggressively and start throwing rocks, sticks, or whatever is in reach at the bear.

The bears are here looking for food. To keep bears away, make sure you are not leaving out things the bears see as an easy meal. A bear’s favorite foods in residential areas are bird feeders, hummingbird feeders, and animal feeders, garbage, compost, and fallen fruit from fruit trees.

MCCA Trails

We hope you enjoy all the trails within the MCCA. You can print out a trail map and see where your adventure leads you. Please note that the golf course trails are not part of MCCA property and are for country club members only.
