City of Newcastle





Ranked as one of the best small towns in America, Newcastle combines the convenience and choices of urban living with the comfort and community of a small town. Newcastle residents can live, work, shop, and play, commute easily to the best jobs in the Pacific Northwest, and return home to natural areas, trails and other opportunities for recreation.




City Council to Set Plans for This Year at Retreat

Councilmembers will meet Friday, January 20, from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Golf Club at Newcastle for strategic planning and discussion of projects to be completed this year. A professional facilitator will engage the Council in a productive dialogue. This open public meeting will be held at the golf club's St. Andrews Ballroom. The public is welcome to attend, but no open public comment period will be a part of the meeting, as retreats are an opportunity for the Council to discuss important issues in an informal setting. The Golf Club at Newcastle is located at 15500 Six Penny Lane.


Guide the Future of Your Downtown Area

Newcastle is creating a strategic plan for downtown, and you're an essential part of this milestone effort. The city has a variety of activities planned for you to assist in determining what changes should take place in the core of Newcastle both today and in the future. Drop-in centers will be set up at Newcastle's HomeStreet Bank and library to allow you to stop by at your convenience without an appointment to share ideas, work on plan strategies and learn more about the issues. Evening workshops will use findings from the drop-in centers to initiate discussion about your vision for downtown. Walking tours will allow participants to talk about the pedestrian experience in the area and how it can be improved. View the full schedule of events by visiting the Downtown Newcastle Strategic Plan website. Share your thoughts on downtown today by taking the online survey. Downtown is recognized as one of the most important elements of the community, and don't miss this opportunity to help plan its future.
