(May 17, 2011) Effective July 1, 2011, more than 10,000 Frisco households and 400 businesses will use a new, five-digit ZIP Code, 75033.
The area impacted is bordered by Main Street, State Highway 289 (Preston Road), F.M. 423 and U.S. Highway 380. Businesses and customers living on the north side of Main Street (even numbered addresses)
will use the new ZIP Code, 75033. Those on the south side of Main Street (odd numbered addresses) will continue to use 75034. Businesses and customers on F.M. 423 -- between Main Street and Eldorado Parkway -- will also use ZIP Code 75033. No changes are being made to the 75035 ZIP Code at this time.
Customers within the boundaries should notify any mailers or correspondents of their new five-digit ZIP Code.
The Post Office can provide a postcard for you to use to notify your magazine and newspaper suppliers. Do NOT submit a ‘Change of Address Request’ to the Postal Service.
Impacted postal customers may still use all of their existing stationery and mailing supplies; however, when reordering those materials, customers should use the new ZIP code, 75033. The United States Postal Service will ensure delivery of mail with the ‘old’ ZIP Code for a period of one year to allow customers to make the transition to the 75033 ZIP Code.
New ZIP Codes are assigned when present ZIP Codes are insufficient for existing mail volume or operational requirements. The United States Postal Service reports when new ZIP Codes are accepted and used, it saves time and money which is passed on to customers.
Below is a statistical breakdown of the business and residential customers:
Current Number of Deliveries
Zone 75034: Residential = 27,344
Business = 2,013
Number of Deliveries After the ZIP Code Split
Zone 75034: Residential = 17, 259 Business = 1,612
Zone 75033: Residential = 10,085 Business = 401
In 2010, the U.S. Census Bureau ranked the City of Frisco as the fastest growing city in the country, 2000 – 2009.
The U.S.P.O reports the current ZIP Code 75034 has grown along with the City of Frisco and is running out of the PLUS-FOUR-DIGITS assigned to five-digit ZIP Codes. The PLUS-4s are needed to sort, ship and deliver mail directly to houses, apartments and businesses.
