Newcastle prides itself on being a business-friendly City. We are actively working to ensure that all of our commercial corridors are sustainable, vibrant places by supporting small business owners, focusing on parks and community spaces, expanding the City's commercial tax base, and working proactively with developers who want to locate mixed-use development in Newcastle. Newcastle is both a desirable residential community and a developing business location.
To encourage economic development, the Newcastle Department of Community Development has hired Jeannette McNally as Economic Development Director. She brings a background in community outreach and economic development to the job and is eager to work with existing businesses as well as a network to attract new businesses.
Newcastle participates in our regional council of governments.
