Officials want to fill three vacancies each on the Newcastle Planning Commission and Parks Commission.
Newcastle residents 18 years or older can apply for the open positions. The application deadline for both commissions is Aug. 21.
The original deadline was Tuesday, but city officials moved the deadline due to a shortage of applicants.
The Planning Commission consists of seven members; they work with the City Council on land-use issues.
The Parks Commission consists of nine members; they works with the council on issues related to parks and recreation.
