Partners in Creating a Model Small Community

Newcastle is a thriving residential community within the fabric of larger urban areas that has retained its small town spirit as it has evolved. City staff is committed to working with developers on creating projects that further improve Newcastle according to the desires of the community as expressed in established plans and regulations. The capabilities of our professional staff are supplemented by the resources of contracted experts. Together we can achieve highest and best use consistent with the established environment and future expectations.

Last year, the city adopted a revised vision for the future with the approval of the Newcastle 2035 Comprehensive Plan and the plan's appendix. This year officials and staff are in the process of developing a Downtown Newcastle Strategic Plan with extensive participation from the business community and the public. Data that will be used for the strategic plan was provided by a study called the Newcastle Community Business Center Assessment. The study and its appendices illuminate current economic and demographic conditions in Newcastle. Other established long term plans can be found on the city's website at this link.
