Order signs to prevent people parking and blocking your mailbox

The Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) can install signs to prevent people parking and blocking your mailbox. A $75 fee applies. If this is a new or infrequent problem, you may instead call PBOT Parking Enforcement at 503-823-5195 or request mailbox stickers by calling 503-823-7275.

The form should take 10 minutes to complete. Allow 4-6 weeks for installation

  1. Check eligibility

    If this is a new problem, PBOT recommends calling Parking Enforcement at 503-823-5195 for infrequent or rare blocking of your mailbox. You may also order free stickers from PBOT which read "DO NOT BLOCK MAILBOX 8AM-6PM DELIVERY DAYS" by calling staff at 503-823-7275. If these options have been exhausted, you may fill out this form for PBOT to install a sign for a fee of $75.
