FRANKLIN COUNTY, N.C. — A group of Franklin County residents are upset because they say the U.S. Postal Service will not deliver mail to their neighborhood.

There are 26 homes in the Ridgemont neighborhood, but 19 of the homes have not gotten a piece of mail delivered for months.The development was built in 2007, but when the recession hit, building stopped. The first residents did not move into the neighborhood until last year.

Also, about a year ago, the postal service started requiring cluster mailboxes in new neighborhoods as a cost saving measure.
