The Planning and Zoning Commission reviews the Town comprehensive plan, which guides development of the Town and the surrounding area. It also reviews regulations governing the subdivision of land, reviews regulations for the Town’s zoning districts, and reviews various types of land use applications. The Commission reviews, discusses and makes recommendations to Council on these issues, with Council making the final decisions.
The Commission consists of 7 Members, 6 of whom are appointed by the Town Council to 4-year terms. The remaining position is filled by each Town Council Member on a rotating 6-month basis. Members of the Commission serve without compensation.
The Commission’s regular meetings are on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month, starting at 7:00 pm, at New Castle Town Hall, located at 450 West Main Street. Meeting agendas are posted at Town Hall, the New Castle Post Office, and the public notice boards in the Castle Valley Ranch Subdivision (at the intersection of Alder Avenue and Wagon Wheel Circle and at Kay Williams Park). The public is welcome and encouraged to attend. Minutes of the meetings are available at Town Hall and in the Archive Center on this site.
