City Hall wants to come to you

In an effort to better communicate with its residents, the city of Newcastle is reaching out to you. Community activities liaison Wendy Kirchner wants to bring City Hall to its residents, through presentations and meet-and-greets.

Here’s Kirchner’s pitch on how the city can help you get better acquainted with the staff that run the place you call home:

Newcastle city staff would like to come to your neighborhood! Are you interested in meeting your neighbors, making your area safer and learning about city services?

We all want to live in a safe, connected community, and we are looking for opportunities to share information about city services, neighborhood safety and discuss issues of concern.

We want to hear what’s going on in your neighborhood, what your concerns are and what your ideas for solutions are.

We want to let you know about available city services, programs and volunteer opportunities.

Newcastle has been ranked by CNN’s Money Magazine as one of the best small towns in America, in part due to our diverse, vibrant neighborhoods. Working with residents to support these neighborhoods is part of our daily business at Newcastle City Hall.

City staff members are committed to working closely with each neighborhood to ensure high-quality services are provided, neighborhood associations are supported and issues are responsively addressed.

We would enjoy coming to your neighborhood and attending one of your future meetings as a way to get to know you, and urge you to raise questions, concerns and comments relating to a neighborhood issue or city services in general.

This also gives you the chance to offer valuable input to the city on neighborhood planning and budgeting for future and existing park improvements, land use, traffic, and sidewalk and roadway improvement projects.

City staff can present information about public safety, permits and licenses, code enforcement, new developments, block watch, volunteer opportunities or natural resources.

You also have the opportunity to meet city staff as a personal contact for:

  • Information about any city or community service
  • Help resolving a neighborhood issue or concern
  • Direct connection to city department or resources
  • Ways to get more involved with the city and your neighborhood
  • Advice on influencing city decisions
  • Help with forming a neighborhood association or revitalizing an existing one.

We encourage you to contact us if you would like to invite staff to your meetings and events happening in Newcastle. Please contact me at Wendyk@ci.newcastle.wa.us 649-4444, ext. 142, for more information.
