More than 100 postboxes the length and breadth of the UK, including three in Northern Ireland, were permanently painted gold to celebrate the achievements of Olympic and Paralympic athletes in the London games.
But Royal Mail won't do the same for Kelly.
Even though Kelly's amazing feat marked the first time any British athlete has won skiing gold, Royal Mail say the postbox honour was a one-off and only happened because the UK was the host nation for the summer games.
Because of that, there's no way they'll repaint a postbox near her Bangor West home to commemorate her golden win – and it's understood that they won't let anybody else do it either.
A Royal Mail spokeswoman told the Spectator, "London 2012 was a unique occasion.
"The UK hosted the games and our athletes performed extraordinarily well. Because of our status as the host nation, Royal Mail chose to mark the achievement of our athletes through gold postboxes as well as stamps."
Their attitude angered local MLA Gordon Dunne, who argued that Bangor's newest sporting hero deserves the same recognition as her fellow champions.
"Royal Mail state they will not be painting any postboxes gold for Sochi medal winners," Mr Dunne said. "This is a very disappointing response and will be unacceptable to many in North Down.
"Kelly's outstanding success deserves recognition, a golden postbox would have been a fitting tribute to the winner of Team GB's first ever gold medal at the winter Paralympics.
"We have seen the magnificent legacy of the London 2012 games with golden postboxes in towns and cities across the country, and it would have been a great legacy for Kelly's achievements and for North Down as a whole."
Mr Dunne's son Stephen, a North Down Borough councillor, stated that the golden postbox would be 'a fitting tribute' to Kelly's amazing performance.
"Kelly is a real role model for young people across North Down and beyond," he said. "We should mark her achievements in proper fashion and I'm disappointed with the Royal Mail's dismissive attitude to the idea of golden postbox in Bangor.
"But we should explore all possible options to make sure Kelly is given a warm homecoming given her fantastic success. At the council I recently proposed a 'wall of fame' for our local sporting stars and I'm sure that Kelly will now be given a well-deserved space on that wall.
"Kelly has helped put Bangor and North Down on the world stage and it's only right that we celebrate this in an appropriate and fitting way."
