About Newcastle

Newcastle is a city in King County, Washington, United States. Its population was 7,737 at the 2000 census.

Although Newcastle was not incorporated until 1994, it has been an important settlement and town since the late 1800s and played a major role in the development of Seattle and the Seattle region. Newcastle was one of the region's earliest coal mining areas and its railroad link to Seattle was the first in King County. Timber also played a role in the early history of Newcastle. Coal delivered by rail from Newcastle's mines to Seattle fueled the growth of the Port of Seattle and attracted railroads, most notably the Great Northern Railway.

The Newcastle coal mine began producing coal by the 1870s. More than 13 million tons of coal had been extracted by the time the mine closed in 1963. Newcastle's coal mining legacy, and the mines many Chinese laborers, remains in place names such as Coal Creek, Coal Creek Parkway, and China Creek Golf Course.

Based on per capita income Newcastle ranks 23rd of 522 areas in the state of Washington to be ranked. In Newsweeks 2009 rankings of best places to live in the United States, Newcastle was honored with the 17th spot.

History

Newcastle was most likely named after Newcastle upon Tyne in England, as it was originally a coal mining town founded in the 1870s. Coal was discovered along Coal Creek in 1863. The surveyors Philip H. Lewis and Edwin Richardson made the discovery while surveying the area for the General Land Office. By 1872 75-100 tons of coal per day were being produced at Newcastle. About 60 men worked at the mines. The Seattle and Walla Walla Railroad, the first railroad in King County, was built from Seattle to Newcastle in the late 1800s. Coal mining ended in 1963. The area was an unincorporated area within King County until it incorporated as a city on September 30, 1994. Currently the city is a suburban community. Most residents work in nearby Seattle, Bellevue, or Renton. Notable attractions of the area include the Golf Club at Newcastle, Lake Boren Park, nearby Cougar Mountain, and Newcastle's many parks and trails.

The city is currently working to obtain its own zip code, as postage taxes are going to Renton instead of to the belonging Newcastle.

Politics

The city council is the legislative branch of Newcastle city government and is the chief policy-making body.

The role of the city council is to establish policies and to enact ordinances and resolutions that are deemed to be in the city's best interests. The city council hires a city manager to ensure that the council's policies, ordinances, and resolutions are implemented.

The policy-making work of the city council is aided by the parks and planning commissions. Members of those commissions are recommended by the mayor and confirmed by a majority of the council.

The current mayor (2008) is Ben Varon. Other councilmembers are: Dan Hubbell, Lisa Jensen, Carol Simpson, Steve Buri, Sonny Putter, and Jean Garber.

City manager John Starbard is the chief executive officer of the municipal corporation and administers the day-to-day operations of the city. The city manager seeks to implement the policy direction established by the city council, and also brings to the city council policy items for its consideration and action.

The duties of the city manager include supervising the administrative affairs of the city, appointing all employees and addressing all personnel matters, preparing a recommended operating and capital budget for the fiscal year, and working with staff to see that the city's laws and ordinances are carried out (see RCW 35A.13.080).

While most projects and services are assigned to the city's operating departments, the Office of the city manager often provides the lead staffing support to certain high priorities, such as new initiatives, special real estate transactions, or activities that involve intergovernmental relations.

Newcastle is located in the 41st Legislative District. The state senator is Fred Jarrett (D) and the two state representatives are Marcie Maxwell (D) and Judy Clibborn (D). The King County Commissioner representing Newcastle is Reagan Dunn (R).

Newcastle is located in the 8th Congressional District. The two US Senators are Maria Cantwell (D) and Patty Murray (D), and the US Representative is Dave Reichert (R).

Newcastle leans toward the Democratic Party. In 2004, Democrat John Kerry received 55 percent of the vote here, defeating Republican George W. Bush, who received around 44 percent.
