Local officials launched a major effort today to get a ZIP code for the city, by asking residents to fill out survey regarding their issues with not having one.
Since its incorporation in 1994, Newcastle has twice been denied its own ZIP code by the United States Postal Service.
Newcastle homeowners and businesses now have to use one of two ZIP codes assigned to Renton (98056 and 98059). City officials are petitioning the postal service for a third time, and hope to win the battle with the help of its residents.
