Mail Box Project
Update: The transition to the new mailboxes has gone well. Winter residents are receiving their mail and packages are being delivered throughout the community.
As a reminder to those returning to the village, please obtain a change of address card from your post office, and complete it with your White Mountain Vacation Village street address. Be sure to use the directional identifier such as E, W, N, or S. All streets with the exception of Vacation Village Drive require a directional identifier.
If you are unsure about your correct address or have any questions contact Linda at 417-676-0142. HOAMCO is no longer involved with the village mailboxes or keys.
For years, getting mail and packages in the Village has been a challenge, both for the Unites States Postal Service and the residents. The WMVV Board has been working with the USPS and the facilities at the clubhouse to resolve many of the issues that have come up. It is ESSENTIAL that each resident play their part the transition that will take place in the next few months. Please follow the instructions below:
Mailbox Project To Convert PO Box Numbers To WMVV Street Addresses
The switchover will go into effect on November 25, 2022, the day after Thanksgiving.
The 2050 Vacation Village Drive PO Box ####’s will no longer be in use.
Residents will use only one address after the switchover. That address will be their WMVV street address for all USPS mail and USPS packages. Mailboxes will be assigned to the Resident’s WMVV street address.
The mailboxes will be labeled in alphabetic street and then numeric order.
Each WMVV address will be given keys associated with their WMVV street address.
Keys will not be returned to HOAMCO upon a property sale. They will stay with the WMVV street/home address.
After the switchover, all USPS packages will be delivered to the Resident's WMVV home. The package boxes will no longer be used. Residents will no longer be required to pick up packages at the Post Office.
In the past HOAMCO was responsible for providing keys to residents when they rented a mailbox, which was paid for yearly. Once the change takes place, each lot owner will be provided 2 keys for their mailbox. There is no charge for these keys. If/when you sell your lot, the keys will need to be transferred to the new owner. Important note: owners are now responsible for their keys; if something happens to them (lost, etc), HOAMCO will not issue replacement keys. The lot owner is responsible for having a new key made. If a lock gets broken, the owner is responsible to have it repaired/replaced.
The Annual Mailbox Rental Fee will no longer be charged.

Q and A:
Do I need to put in a change of address? Yes, everyone wintering in Show Low should already have turned in a change of address.
I tried to change my address online and it would not take? Please obtain a change of address form from the post office and process it manually. This will ensure the change when Phoenix is through with their end. Until then Janet will continue to process manually.
I tried to change my address online with my bank or other company and it wouldn’t take my new street address? The best way to handle this is to call the institution and have a customer service representative make the change in your account. I did this with my bank because the system didn’t like my “E” in E Hanging Tree Trl. It worked, no problem. The representative was able to make the change.
I haven’t been receiving my mail and I always get mail everyday? Let me first take this opportunity to thank all of you for your patience and understanding. Normally, a change of address delays your mail because it is handled separately in the postal system. If you believe it has taken too long please call me and I will research it with the post office. Please allow at least 7 to 10 days, I’m sure it will catch up.
I am wintering down state but do not usually put in a change of address since I don’t get much mail. Should I have put one in? Yes please fill out a change of address form manually and take it to the post office. The change should be from your 2050 Vacation Village Post box number to your WMVV Street Address.
