The valley continues to see growth by leaps and bounds and as a result, the U.S. Postal Service has announced plans to create a new ZIP code in Tempe.
The rapid growth in the area has demanded that the Postal Service add the new addition of 85288. Affected customers will be notified by mail. The new ZIP code will go into effect July 1.
The new ZIP code became necessary because of Tempe’s rapid growth and also allows for the addition of new delivery routes and new addresses in the area.
