When will our neighborhood get door-to-door USPS mail delivery?

Why do some neighborhoods get USPS mail delivered to their door (or at least to their property) and other neighborhoods get USPS mail delivered to mailboxes on the street near the recipients' property but not on it?

Every house I've ever lived in had the mail delivered to the door, or a mailbox near the door. This last summer I moved to a smaller town, and while this neighborhood was maybe 20 years ago kind of "in the country", in my opinion it wouldn't be considered "in the country" any longer. The school district head quarters is a block away, there's a golf course a few blocks away, numerous houses and developments, ten blocks to a mini-mall, etc... Is there any chance that one day this neighborhood will get door-to-door mail service like I'm used to? What does it take to get the USPS to upgrade your neighborhood?
I'm not injured and I don't have a pressing need for this change, I'm just curious. My mailbox is across the street, and I currently feel safe crossing it to get the mail currently, but that will likely eventually change as the traffic picks up due to all the construction in the neighborhood. For what it's worth, I'm within the city limits of Corvallis Oregon.
