A city administrator in Oregon is pushing to have Adair Village issued with its own zip code within the next few months, reports the Albany Democrat-Herald.
Drew Foster is calling for Adair Village, which has almost 1,000 residents, to be rewarded with a separate zip code to distinguish it from nearby Corvallis, with which it has been sharing the 97330 code.
Mr Foster says that every other city in the state with a similar population has had its own zip code validation
and the region had its own post office when it was a military base during World War II.
Mr Foster told the paper: "I think we have a really good shot at this based on our history and the fact that there are a number of smaller, unincorporated communities that have their own zip codes."
He added that he expects Adair Village to expand quickly once the economy recovers and that residents deserve city recognition.
In related news, proposals have been rejected to change the 90210 zip code allocated to Beverly Hills in California, reports the Beverly Hills Courier.
