Your Community Activities Commission

The Newcastle Community Activities Commission is comprised of seven community members who volunteer their time and expertise to serve as a review and advisory body to the City Council on City-owned park planning, design, and construction, park and facility development, renovation, trails and paths, recreation programs and special community events. Commissioners also directly volunteer their time to accomplish city objectives and to plan and conduct city events, such as concerts in the park and Newcastle Days. The commission performs duties assigned annually by the Council.

The commission meets the second Wednesday of each month at City Hall starting at 7 p.m. Questions concerning the commission or its activities can be directed [email protected].  Community Activities Commissioners can be contacted by sending an email to the staff liaison or sending an email to commissioners directly by clicking their names below.

You can make a difference by volunteering to serve on the Community Activities Commission. When a position becomes vacant, the city conducts a competitive selection process. Residents of Newcastle, or its potential annexation areas as found in the Comprehensive Plan, submit letters of interest, resumes, and applications to the City Clerk. A selection committee made up of the Mayor, the Commission Chair, and an additional representative chosen by the Mayor review applications and select candidates for interviews. Following interviews, the Mayor makes a decision about who to appoint. Members of the Council then review the Mayor's recommendation.

For more information, contact the City Clerk's office at 425-386-4114.
