Canyon Lake unlikely to get its own zip code

One of the city’s 2020 goals was to explore establishing a zip code specific to Canyon Lake. The city held multiple discussions with Congressman Ken Calvert’s office and found that the United States Postal Service (USPS) has been pushing back on such requests.

For example, Eastvale, with a population of about 65,000 residents, has been trying to establish a zip code for nearly 10 years. USPS denied Eastvale in 2011. Congressman Calvert then introduced legislation for Easvale in 2016 and 2020, both times failing to make it out of the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, which has been reluctant to advance any bills calling for new zip codes.

In 2017, Jurupa Valley, with a population of about 108,000 residents, successfully petitioned USPS, with the help of Congressman Mark Takano, to be designated the primary/default city for a zip code they share with Riverside. Riverside became the secondary city under that zip codeJurupa Valley was not given a new zip code of their own.

“Legislation might be our only avenue,” said City Manager Chris Mann. “We may need to wait until new leadership exists on the House Committee on Oversight and Reform.”
