David Smeal, a southwest Norman resident, said Friday that some of those living in the affected neighborhood have already erected mailboxes next to the curb.
On a walking tour of the neighborhood Friday, Smeal pointed out several new curbside mailboxes, including three that were put up probably on Thursday.
Thus far, Smeal said it appears that only owners of residences occupied by students are complying with the new rule.
Smeal refers to those residences as “mini-dorms” that dot their neighborhood.
That section of Norman which is west of the campus has experienced more students renting houses since the University of Oklahoma banned alcohol in fraternity houses on campus.
