Earlier Plans

2009 Comprehensive Plan 

The following Comprehensive Plan represents an update of the City of New Castle’s very detailed 2003 Comprehensive Plan. Much of the data, information, assumptions, and many of the recommendations of the 2003 plan are still valid. Rather than repeat them unnecessarily here, the current effort continues to bring forward past recommendations, suggest new ones, and match both to a series of implementation strategies.
