Temporary Changes to Newcastle Communications
Posted on 03/12/2021

Following the departure of the Community Engagement Coordinator, Newcastle citizens will notice some changes to communications and activities. Due to the vacancy and a shortage of staff resources, many of this position’s duties will go on a temporary hiatus until a replacement is hired. Here’s what you can expect in the interim:

- The twice-a-month email newsletter, including police blotter updates and council meeting recaps, will go on indefinite hiatus. 

- Until a replacement is secured, the City of Newcastle social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Nextdoor) will no longer be regularly updated nor monitored. This does not include the Police Department Facebook and Twitter accounts. Please do not reach out to the City over social media. To report an issue, go to newcastlewa.gov/report.

- The City website newcastlewa.gov will not be updated on a regular basis. To ensure you see regular meeting notices, bookmark the public notice page.

- The Newcastle Community Activities Commission, a volunteer advisory board that assists in the organization of community events, outreach and parks initiatives, will go on a temporary hiatus. While the Council voted to cancel 2021 summer events, this impacts coordination for alternative activities and community giveaways planned for this spring and summer.
