The city of Newcastle is looking for a volunteer to serve on the Community Activities Commission, after current commissioner Craig Belcher resigned from his post.
Seven Newcastle residents serve on the commission, facilitating events and programs in the city.
Applicants must be Newcastle residents, at least 18 years of age and have an interest in community events, city parks and recreational programs. Mayor Rich Crispo said he would like to see more young people on the city’s volunteer commissions.
Applications are reviewed by the mayor who recommends appointments to the full City Council for their approval. If selected, new members will be appointed for a four-year term.
Interested parties should submit a letter of interest and application in person or mail to Newcastle City Hall, 12835 Newcastle Way, Suite 200. Prospective commissioners can also email the materials to the city clerk at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The applications are posted on the city website at www.ci.newcastle.wa.us and are due by 5 p.m. Sept. 10.
